Participants in a team start together from a starting block, which is determined on the basis of the lowest specified average speed. The collective start from one starting block can only be guaranteed if all team members register within the official registration deadline.

Womens starting block
We offer women the opportunity to start from a common starting block on the respective discipline. The start will be from a middle starting block. We would like to give beginners in particular the opportunity to ride the race together. The allocation to the women's starting block will be prioritized in the starting block allocation and placed before the joint start with the team. ATTENTION: Riders who are aiming for a TOP 30 position should place themselves in the front starting blocks according to their performance and not choose the women's starting block.

Good to know

We have listed the most important hand signals for cyclists to communicate on the route.

The first 100 male finishers will take the first 100 overall places for each distance. From 101st place, the net time cycled will determine the ranking.
