Saturday starts : MaXi, R-Race, XL-Race D1

Practical information:

  • We differentiate waves and SAS starts:
    - A starting wave corresponds to a starting time
    - For each wave, there can be 1 or 2 SAS in order to distribute the runners within the starting wave according to their level and to fluidify the starts.
  • The SAS are automatically constituted based on your performance index one month before the event
  • Your race time will start when you cross the start line.
  • Time barriers are calculated on the start time of the last wave.

Start time schedule:

In order for you to be able to estimate in which SAS you are going to start, we communicate you the distribution of the SAS of 2022. This distribution will evolve for 2023 according to the level of the registered riders and will be communicated 1 month before the event

  • 2:50 am: Start of wave 1 consisting of:
    - SAS 1: between 30 and 50 elite runners (index above 778 for men and 601 for women)
