What if I arrive late at controls?
If you are late at a control, but you think you can still finish in time, please make every effort to continue. We will not disqualify any rider with a reasonable chance of finishing in time.
Once the official time has passed, it is up to the discretion each controller will decide how long to stay in the check point. If you arrive after the official closing time and the last check point is closed you will be disqualified.
If you arrive at a control later than the official closing time after having gone through Biella for the second time, and the control is closed, then we are afraid we will not be able to validate your ride.
TIP: The first part controls will remain opened until the passage of the last cyclist. This means you do not need to worry if you have a time deficit early in the ride.
