DBX LIMITED – A NEW FORMAT FOR 2020!
Dear DBX Rider,
Thank you for your ongoing support during these uncertain times.
Despite Covid-19 cases decreasing and regulations easing, the challenges of bringing events to riders are still alive and well. Due to the increased cost to meet the Covid-19 compliance regulations and the limit on the number of riders allowed to participate, we will not be hosting DBX in its usual format.
We are excited to announce our format for 2020, DBX LIMITED EDITION.
We offer the routes and you create the experience. Riders will have the opportunity to cycle the beautiful and otherwise inaccessible Darling routes in your own time and at your own pace!
The DBX routes will be open on the 7th and 8th of November 2020 from 06:30 to 14:00.
START AND FINISH:
Darling Brew, 48 Caledon Street, Darling
There are three routes, a 20km, 45km and a 65km route. All routes will be clearly marked and riders will receive the GPX files for the specific route they have entered.
Make sure you load the route file on to your device. If you get lost, return to the previous route sign and continue from there.
To avoid congestion on the routes and adhere to social distancing regulations, there will be different starting batches from 06:30 to 09:30 with a limited number of people per time slot. One is free to change your time slot multiple times, but it is dependent on availability.
There will be sweepers and a recovery vehicle on route to make sure everyone gets home safely.
HOW TO ENTER:
A limited amount of entries are available on Entry Ninja. Those that have already entered for DBX2020 will be issued a voucher and with the Entry Ninja links to choose a date, distance and time slot for their ride.
Those that have ordered merchandise can collect it at the registration point anytime on the day. Those that still wish to order can do so on Entry Ninja when choosing their time slots. Please note purchases for merchandise will close on the 6th of November 2020.
There will be no refunding after 1 September 2020. We thank you for your support and understanding during these trying times.
The basic cycling rules still apply. Wear a helmet, keep your distance and look out for other riders. There will not be any assistance on the route, please follow the route signs and cross roads safely.
As per Covid-19 regulations, this is a self- sufficient ride. Please carry with you what you require. There will be a water tank at the start for filling bottles and one refill station on each route. At this time of year there are loads of thorns in Darling. Please ensure you do not ride without sludge in your tyres. No spectators or route support will be allowed.
All routes start and finish at the Brewery. Riders have to register and do a Covid-19 screening before they leave. No riders will be able to participate without going through the registration process.
All riders will receive a post ride finishers beer and DBX Limited Edition bottle opener. Those that entered Long Claw and Bone Crusher in its previous format will receive a DBX loyalty pack to the value of R200.
Timing will be done through Strava and results will become available by the 9th November 2020. We ask that all riders upload their times by no later than 12 hours post event.
The Tasteroom will be open and coffee, beer and food will be available. Booking for the restaurant is advised and can be done on our Tasteroom page.
We are so looking forward to this day with you! Now get out there and train!!!
