Teams will be seeded according to their self-estimated times. It is crucial that you and your partner check-in at the designated call up area 15min before your allocated start times.
Start Times will be published on, the Epic Series App and riders will receive a daily SMS.
From Stage 2 onwards, start batches are allocated according to position on the overall GC.
Start Chutes can be entered between 15 and 5 minutes before the start. The start chutes can only be entered as a team with your bikes. Teams cannot exit once they have entered the start chute.

Pumps will be available at the start. Please note, there will be no comprehensive tech service in the morning, but Masquebici will be available should you require assistance. 

Please make sure to fill your water bottles at the hotel with water. You will receive one portion of Maurten Energy Gel nutrition in your race pack, that you can use to pre-mix your bottles. There will be morning coffee and some local pastries before the stage start.

There will be a strip stop at each start where you can drop off any clothing you would like to wear before the start but not during the race. You can also include any clothing that you might want to change after the finish. Clothing needs to be placed in your personalized sling bag in order to be accepted at the strip stop. Please place your sling bag tag on the bag before dropping it off. Remember to collect your sling bag near the finish line once you are done with the day’s racing.

It is important to make sure that you carry the tools and spare materials you may need throughout the race with you as well as enough water to sustain yourself. We advise that you carry tire levers, multi-tool, cable ties, CO2 bombs, pump, spare tube and anything else you may require. Please ensure that you have the necessary clothing to suit all kinds of weather conditions on you. A rain and wind protection jacket should be carried at all times. The weather forecast for each stage will be part of the rider briefing available every evening. 


After each stage your results as well as your start time and start batch for the next day can be accessed online at,  or via the Epic Series app.
