How the start will be given
The first difficulty in the route comes quite early: after 45 km, a small bridge will be crossed to avoid blocking the A75 in Massiac, and the first quite steep climb (5 km long).
We are going to spread out the start flow (with 1 h between the first and the last starters) to prevent congestion and ensure the utmost comfort and safety. This will enable us to spread out the stream of cyclists.
The width of the starting line will be reduced to 3 m and a few minutes’ gap will be left between each group of participants.
Real-time timing will ensure you get your actual race times.
We prefer to have you wait in the starting areas and make your race comfortable.
