Apply the Countryside Code at all times:

  • You must be within 10m of your bike at all times
  • In transition, bikes must be dismounted as instructed


  • 1 point for every 30 seconds for being late back.  Therefore, for every 5 minutes you are late back you lose a checkpoint.

The winner is the competitor with the largest number of points, if there is a tie, the winner is the competitor who gained the largest number of points in the quickest time.
