Or on the day, starting at 06h00 each day.
Riders with a Mobii timing tag assigned to their name should bring this along. Do not another person’s tag, as your time will then not be recorded. Please get your tag tested at number collection, as the batteries do run flat even when not used. We do not support RaceTec tags!
Riders without a Mobii can collect one at number collection, preferably on Friday, so not to be rushed. Riders must pay R100 IN CASH and is refundable at the end of the event. These tags cannot be purchased (they are not ours to sell).
