Teams of up to 6 will be challenged to ride as many laps of the course as possible in 3 hours. Riders can alternate via the pit lane at their own discretion. So, if you like, you can take a strategic racing approach, or just change and rest whenever you wish - but the more riders on the track, the more laps you achieve.
The first 3 hours is open to all riders and is simply the most laps ridden by individual and team staged on the 3.93 K GP Gardiner Circuit. This challenge also includes the fastest laps male and female as well as the king and queen of the mountain challenges.
The sprint challenge at the end of the day is open to 2 riders per team and set on the GP Mt Druitt 2.8 K circuit. This challenge is untimed and on completion of the 3-hour team and individual challenge above.
