Both. You compete against fellow solo riders for first, second and third, in order to place and win a plaque. Likewise, if you enter as a 2 man team you compete against fellow 2 men teams. And the same for the 3 man teams.

If your bike breaks down, PLEASE don't venture off the track & make your own way back to the pits (even if you THINK you know the way back!). The venue is very vast and riders have been known to get lost.
Like-minded riders are known to stop and offer assistance, if not, stop a rider and ask to pass the message onto the next control point or marshal.
Wait where you are and a travelling marshal will be along shortly and can radio through to arrange collection. There is no cost involved, however feel free to buy the marshal a drink after the event.
If you cannot do another lap, you can park your bike in “holding pen” (which will be positioned before the finish line). The holding pen will open from 2pm on the Sunday. Once the race has finished at 7pm or just after the lead rider has passed the finishing line, you can then collect your bike from the holding pen and ride up to the finish line to record your last lap time.
Here you will also be able to collect your finishing medal.
You can only have a van in the Pits providing you are entered in the 24 hour race.
If you entered in any other race, be it the 2hr, 6hr or 12hr, your van will need to be parked outside of the Pits.
You can only have an easy-up in the Pits providing you are entered in the 24 hour race.
We do not allow Easy-Ups for any of our other races, such as the 2hr, 6hr or 12hr.
