Bike Inspections

Proof of bike service is not required, however it is expected that all bikes are of good and safe standard for this type of terrain, as organisers we reserve the right to have a bike mechanic to inspect bikes randomly for race worthiness. If any problems with a bike cannot be rectified by the mechanic the bike will be withdrawn from the event.
