Bike / Mechanical Support
Mobile Cycle Support
Mechanical support will be provided on-course by mobile cycle mechanics. Mechanics will ride at the back of the Epic and Classic packs.
The Next will be at Green Bush Hut and the last one at Dingle Burn Station. They are professional mechanics from Thunder Bikes, Racers Edge and Outside Sports bike shops in Wanaka. One mechanic will ride tail end charlie over the course, so you will find them at the back of the pack or places mentioned above should you need them.
A spare bike will be carried in the Epic and Classic Tail End Charlie vehicles in case you have a major malfunction.
A Tail End Charlie mobile mechanic will be available for the Traverse course following the last ride around the course.
Support crews are discouraged from following the EPIC riders along SH6 or any of the riders coming back along Timaru Creek Road. The less traffic on the public roads surrounding the course the safer the riders will be.
No assistance can be given to any riders outside of the event officials otherwise disqualification of the rider will occur.
