ROODOL- WARM UP AREA
The warm up area in 2016 will be provided by our new partner RooDol®. There will be 12 spots at each event that can be used by all athletes to warm up and get that blood flowing.
Men & Women start together in one heat and in an own rating. First lap is neutralized and super slow and easy. Everyone stays behind the moto. Women have no overlapped rule. The men's race will have a motorbike and an overlapped rule. Once the motorbike overtakes, you're out of the race. The race will have 20 laps á 1,4k.
The Open-Men's race (all bikes welcome; standard roadbikes would be a good choice though) will also have 20 laps á 1,4k. Once the motorbike overtakes, you're out of the race. The Open-Women's race will not have an overlapped rule.
This is an event of the 2016 RAD RACE SERIES therefore the results will affect the overall Series ranking (Teams and Individual rankings). The 3 best individual results of each team score for the team ranking.
Here's all details about the race and the disclaimer.
