Your race kit should contain:

  • Swim Cap (1)
  • Sticker with race number (3) for the helmet, (1) for the bike
  • Ankle Band with Chip (1)
  • Bib number with Chip (1) (no race belt provided, bring your own)

Bike and race kit setup:

The chip is essential for the timing. Wear it on the ankle as shown. In case of a wetsuit the chip must be on top of it.

Instructions for use

The bike sticker shall be attached so it is visible from both sides of the bicycle.

Fix the bib number on a race belt. Turn on the back for the bike section. Turn in front for the run section. No race belt is provided by the organisers. You must bring your own.

Directions for Putting on Timing Chip Band:

  • Place the band on ankle with words “Swim, Bike, Run” showing Face Up.
  • Place the gap between the foam tags at the center of the ankle. Make sure one foam spacer is located on the right side of the ankle and the other on the left side of the ankle – Per photo #1.
  • Adjust and attach the Band by inserting two fingers to create space between the ankle and the Band – Per photo #2.
  • Be sure your hands are completely clean so as not to affect the adhesive with sunscreen, Vaseline etc.
  • For the timing Band to work properly, it must be on the outside of all clothing. Do not cover with wetsuit.
  • A backup timing chip is behind your Race Number. It is very important not to remove it.
