Solo or as a Duo ! Alone we go faster, together we go further !

Together we’re stronger! Stick together all the way to the finish to try and win the race as a duo. You’ll need to help each other out, because only the time of the last person to cross the line counts for the duo, plus any “solidarity gap” between the first and last team-mates if the team doesn’t cross the finish line together. This calculation formula will encourage the Duos to stay together until the finish line, for better or for worse. Each rider in the team will also be ranked individually in the overall classification.
