Dear competitor,

 

As you are all aware, we are having unseasonable hot weather. We thought it was going to be a bit cooler on Saturday, but it looks like it will still be up to 25 °C.

 

Please be aware: Heat stroke is a very serious condition and can be common when racing in these temperatures. It also often requires hospital admittance.

 

So, to avoid this on Saturday:

 

  • Please wear sun block (nothing less than 30)
  • You will not be allowed to race without a head covering (buff or sun hat)
  • Bring water you can carry on the race. (there will be an extra water station just after the descent of the mountain)
  • Please be aware the heat has also caused more horse flies than normal,so fly repellent is strongly advised.

 

Stay safe and enjoy the race!

 

We’re looking forward seeing you on Saturday!
