Glass Containers


(0 votes)

In order to protect athletes safety and to prevent bicycles from having a flat tire the following rule is in place:

Article 3.4 j. Glass Containers. No participant shall utilize any glass bottles or glass containers at any time during the event. Any violation of this Section shall result in a variable time penalty, unless the Head Referee determines that such conduct constituted endangerment under section 3.4(l), in which case the penalty shall be disqualification. 

Before every race it is strongly recommended that Race Directors remind their athletes of the following rule, either on the race website, email alerts or during pre-race course talks.
