The Rolly View Community Hall is the staging site for this road race. The gravel parking lot may be a little tight, so please park intelligently and be considerate of others. The hall will be open to use the rest room facilities.
License check & sign-in will open at 8:30am just inside the hall. Seeing as the first race is off at 09:31am, license check and sign in will close at 09:20.
Two jersey numbers and a frame plate.
Number placement on the jersey is on the right shoulder and lower back.
No team or unauthorized following vehicles are permitted in the road race.
There will be a Commissaire vehicle with race radio following each category of the race.
Wheel cars will follow the peloton of each ability category. Wheels are not neutral UNLESS the wheel car is full. Drop your spare wheels off in the respective ability level’s wheel car. The wheel cars will be parked at marked locations at the Rolly View community hall and can be loaded up to approximate 09:25.
Wheels from your ability level will return to the Rolly View community hall once your race is completed.
An ambulance and several paramedics will be on the course. The nearest hospital is the Leduc Community Hospital.
We will be following UCI feed zone regulations: “Feeding is prohibited on climbs, descents and during the first 50 and last 20 km”.
The feed zone has been placed on Range Road 233 beginning at Township Road 484 and is 250m in length. It will be marked with the green feed zone flags. You may feed only on laps two and three. U15/U17 riders should bring enough nutrition for the duration of their race.
Feeders must keep vehicles completely off the road surface, including the shoulder. Race organizers and local residents will not tolerate any litter or waste left behind. Feel free to find safe parking on Township Road 484 and simply walk to the feed area.
Bottles and trash are only to be discarded in the feed zones. Failure to abide will result in fines.
The finish line is approximately 800m south Rolly View road on Range Road 233.
The finishing sprint must not cross the centre line. You will run the risk of being relegated or disqualified should you violate the centre line rule.
At the conclusion of your race, proceed with extreme care when turning around to head back north to the Rolly View community hall.
Podium presentations will be held shortly after the race ends over at the Rolly View Community Hall parking area.
