Start procedures

The start of the first day will be in Mârșa in the courtyard of the Metropolis factory. The start of stages 2 and 3 will be in the center of Avrig, in front of the City Hall.

Stage 1 (XCT): Competitors will start 1 minute apart from each other according to the starting list. Those who are not at the start at the scheduled time can take the start later, when the starting referee allows them, but no later than the last competitor. The delayed competitor’s time is still reported at the initial start time.

Arrival at the time trial is at the Augusta Brewery, so after arrival you are expecting a beer directly from the source.

Stage 2 (XCP): competitors will be arranged at the start according to the results of the first stage in 2 zones, Elite and the rest of the competitors. The start will be neutralized for the first 2 km, until the exit of Avrig (crossing over the bridge).

Stage 3 (XCM): competitors will be arranged at the start according to the General Leaderboard after stage 2, in 2 zones, Elite and the rest of the competitors. The start will be neutralized for the first 2 km, until the exit from Avrig (crossing over the railway).

For stages 2 and 3 the arrangement at the start will be:

  • Elite competitors in order of ranking
  • competing at the Women’s Open in order of ranking
  • amateur competitions in order of ranking

Bookmarks

  • Black arrows on a yellow background
  • Shimano tape
  • Orange flags
  • blue spray

Time limits

Stage 2 – 12:30 KM 27 – competitors who do not fit will be directed to arrival and will receive the time of the last ranked + 10%
Stage 3 – 13:30 KM 38 – competitors who do not fit will be directed to arrival and will receive the time of the last ranked + 10%

Timing, results and rankings

Electronic timing with disposable chip. The results will be available online after each stage.

In case of damage the number announced to the Race office to be replaced for the next stage.

The overall ranking will be generated by aggregating the times from the 3 stages.
If a competitor does not finish a stage he will be able to start the next day, but will be ranked as DNF at the stage race.

The railway crossing from the last day is supervised by the referees. If a train passes the referees will stop you and time the time you spend there to be subtracted from your final time. Failure to comply with the rules and indications of the referees at the railway crossing entails disqualification.

The leader’s jersey

After each stage, the leader in the overall men’s and women’s standings will be awarded the URGO blue jersey. The leader of the general classification is required to wear that jersey in the next stage.

Accidents

In case of an accident, notify the organizer as soon as possible. By phone (if you have) to the emergency number on the bib number, or to the first referee. By phone, try to communicate the location as accurately as possible.
