Transition Area / Tent
Each racer (including soloists) must log in and log out at the check-in station located at the start/finish area (exchange tent). The registrar will then record the login time before that rider can begin his/her lap. The logout time is the login time for the next rider regardless of whether or not that rider is present in the exchange tent. If the rider is to continue on for another lap he or she must still check in with the registrar prior to beginning the next lap. If a rider fails to do this, only one lap will be recorded. If a team cancels a rider’s lap and is starting the lap over with a new rider, there will be no penalty. However, the team’s rider must check in with the registrar. The login time recorded for the rider failing to complete the lap will be used as the login time for the new rider. Teams should be sure that each rider is logging in and out correctly.
A rider who has entered the course must complete his or her lap. Rider substitutions can only be made at the check-in station.
