Dryland does not accept responsibility for lost or damaged goods.
BACK-UP, SUPPORT VEHICLE AND CHECKPOINT RULES
This is a full service event, so riders participating in the race will not need any back-up. Riders are however welcome to have a back-up team available at the checkpoints.
No support outside of the designated checkpoint area will be allowed and any transgression in this regard will lead to disqualification.
Support vehicles are allowed at the checkpoints but have to move according to the back-up vehicle route.
Any support vehicle found on the route will result in disqualification.
We do not have road closure.
Riders must adhere to the rules of the road.
Marshals are there to warn traffic, but the responsibility lies with the rider to look out for traffic, ride on the left hand side of the road, stop at all stop signs and intersections and only proceed when it is safe to do so.
Race cut-off times
The race cut-off is 36.1 hours at the finish but in the interest of rider safety it has been decided to enforce cut-off times at the water-and checkpoints. The cut-off times are very generous and most riders should reach the respective points in the allotted time. Riders that are cut will be removed from the course and transported back to Kleinplaas Holiday Resort. The decision of the organizer is final.
