Relay Team Format for DSD - This is a fun event, to enjoy the route, challenge yourself, while you share the distance with your buddies.
The team event is a relay, not a peloton of 2, 3 or 4 members. Team members take turns riding, while other/s rest in the support vehicle and move up the road.
I. Team members may even share the driving of the support vehicle, though at least one dedicated driver is recommended for safety.
Form a team of cyclists, get a friend to support you with the promise of beers at the end of the road.... and just ride!
SOLO is just that.... Solo! Solo racers ride the entire distance.
OPEN- This is a non RAAM Qua
