The Dams Challenge is NOT a race however we do time each rider. The purpose for timing is to enable us to monitor your progress, locate you on the course and for your information.
Family and friends will be able to monitor your progress throughout the day with live-to-web streaming from check-points.
Due to the lack of communications in some areas not every check point will provide live results. The final location of the timing stations will be announced in the rider packs.
