Our Comprehensive Guide to Scrutineering

All our marshals will use good judgement and will always be fair, but firm in deciding on the ability of both the rider and the condition of the bike to be ridden. A Chief Marshal's decision is final.

Scrutineering times will be conveyed to riders in a 'Rider Email' prior to the race and at 'Registration'. Last scrutineering will be half an hour before each race commences.
