Time Bonuses!!

by

If you’re like me and not blessed with the Schleck-like genetics of weighing less than 2 pounds per inch of height (that’s about 0.9 kilos per 2.5 cm’s for our Canadian friends!), then you’re probably not one of the great climbers in the world. If you do have Sckleck-like qualities – Congratulations. Please do us a favor and keep your race jersey on!

To keep the race tactics interesting, and as most stage races do, we will have time bonuses to award during the Criterium and Circuit (or road race) stages. These bonuses will not be scored separately and will be awarded to the actual 1, 2, 3 placed riders in each group. The bonuses are:

Criterium – Lap 8

  • 1st – 20 Seconds
  • 2nd – 10 Seconds
  • 3rd – 5 Seconds

Criterium – Finish

  • 1st – 10 Seconds
  • 2nd – 6 Seconds
  • 3rd – 4 Seconds

Circuit Race – Lap 5

  • 1st – 20 Seconds
  • 2nd – 10 Seconds
  • 3rd – 5 Seconds

Circuit Race – Finish

  • 1st – 10 Seconds
  • 2nd – 6 Seconds
  • 3rd – 4 Seconds

Play your cards right and you can pull back one full minute on the mountain goats or, at the very least, feel justified in eating a dinner not consisting of saltines and water.
