Race schedule 2018

With some very significant changes we believe we have created a race schedule that is fun to watch for supporters, and equally fun to participate in. We hope to greet many new riders on the Saturday morning, where you compete with riders of equal strength. It may sound scary to do an "elimination race", but don't worry, no bikes or persons will be harmed. On the contrary. The one-hour time trial has moved to Saturday evening.
Also on Sunday morning there is much to do and see for visitors. Two races will run in parallel: the six-hour endurance starts at 9am, and until 12am we organize a city-simulation-race for-and-by children, supporters and (non 6-hour) racers.
At 12am the 3-hour race starts, it will finish together with the 6-hour at 15pm. On both days there are picknick lunches for visitors. Supporters can monitor race results live on their smartphones. Registration for the races will open early May.

Below is a summary of times and race categories.
