Rules were created for the safety and fairness for all participants, spectators and the community.  We appreciate your cooperation in following all event official rules, directives from event officials including Bike Patrol, and abiding by Arizona bicycle laws.  Rules will be enforced.  Police, Bike Patrol and other course officials will take rider numbers of violators, who will be disqualified, and who will, as a result of their violation, not receive a finishing time or ranking.

Some rule highlights:

  • Do not cross a solid or double yellow line.
