For the 2018 event we will once again offer seeded places to riders, but will double the number of places available to 100. It will be based on results from the 2017 event and seeded riders will gain access to the front start pen on the start grid. This will be optional, anyone given a seeded number can start in the main pen if they wish to do so.
Seeded riders will be as follows:
- Top 60 overall men, 2017
- Top 10 overall female, 2017
- Top 3 places from every category (not including sub categories), 2017. This applies to people who finished outside the overall places shown above.
- 20 places at the digression of the organisers by application.
- Any remaining places (from placed riders not entered in the 2017 event) also at the discretion of the organisers
Riders inside the top 60 men, top 10 female (overall, not category – see results here) do not need to do anything.
We will release details on how to apply for one of the seeded places a few weeks after entries have been released.
