PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
1. There will be gear restrictions for ALL riders in both road events. It will be consistent with the Canada Games themselves. "For any road event, the gear ratio shall be restriced to 7.93 metres maximum (52 X 14 with 700 cc wheels)." You may use a 53 X 15 but you will loose a few gear inches. Gears may be 'blocked' off.
2. There will be bike restrictions, again consistent with the Canada Games - "Each competitor cannot use more than two (2) different bicycles - one for the road events and one for the mountain bike event. These bicycles must be registered at the time of license presentation. A seal will be applied to the main part of the bicycle and this seal will be checked at each start and finish. If the seal is not intact, the rider will be disqualified.
Some parts of the bicycle may be changed from one event to another: wheels, bars, pedals, etc. but the frame must remain the same for the road events and for the mountain bike event. In case of a structural breakdown of the frame, as recognized by the Chief Official, a replacement frame may be used. "
3. Overall GC will be determined by a points system.
