Race to the Sun 2019, is only 3 days from now and everyone is doing their last minute prep for the 167 km journey from Hartbeespoort to Sun City. Here’s a few final arrangements for Relay Teams.
The relay point is at Roodekopjes Dam. Relay team members should follow the Spectator Route (Download Route Here), as there are no vehicles allowed on the actual Race to the Sun route. #SafetyFirst.
Rider 2: You are welcome to support your buddy at Spectator Point 1, but be sure to be in time for your relay at the designated Relay Point.
Start at Schoemansville Die Oewer and finish at Roodekopjes Dam.
Rider 1 will see a sign splitting from the route named “Relay”. Follow this sign! This will lead you to the relay area where you need to sign out with the time keeper. Give your buddy a high-five, you’ve just completed half the distance! Be sure to grab the CAR KEYS from him/her and get them to explain to you where the car is parked.
Start at Roodekopjes Dam and finish at Sun City.
Rider 2: When you arrive at Roodekopjes dam, please ask the marshal where the Relay teams should park (this is closer to the relay point). Please ensure you give the car keys to Rider 1! You also need to scan your board before you leave. (Important: Don’t start riding before Rider 1 arrives, this will lead to disqualification).
Rider 2: Upon finishing, please get a medal for both yourself and your team partner. Also grab an ice cold Radler and Devil’s Peak beer at the finish and celebrate a great day out on your bikes with like-minded crazies!
