Controls and Services en-route

Controls/Checkpoints

Due to the front loading of the hills on this route, Les Randonneurs Mondiaux have authorised us to use revised cutoff times based on a 13.333km/h average speed.

Please remember the revised time-limits are set to ensure riders can get adequate rest. I recommend aiming to get the overnight controls by the regular "ACP90" closing time and leaving prior to the "Cutoff Time" that has been calculated based on 13.333km average over the whole route, from Day 2 onward.
