Individual time trials (rules)

Conduct during the race

Participants may only use the cordoned parcours and stay within the lanes. In order to ensure safety and fairness while overtaking, it is imperative to always ride as far right as possible. Cutting corners is strictly prohibited and leads to disqualification. Slipstreaming is prohibited and leads to disqualification without exception. The Dutch traffic regulations (StVO) must be strictly adhered to.

What is slipstreaming?

Blatant slipstreaming right behind a competitor or at a distance of less than 10m and at the same speed as the competitor ahead. A rider overtaking must leave a lateral gap of 2m; the person being overtaken may, in turn, not take advantage of the slipstream of the person overtaking.

Road race (rules)

  • Lapped cyclists may only ride on the right.
  • They may not lead.
  • “Negative laps” are added to the score of lapped cyclists.
  • In the event that a cyclist violates these rules, he/she will be eliminated and must leave the race.
  • As soon as the lead rider has completed 11 laps, a bell is sounded to signal to him/her and to all other riders that the last lap has begun. The commentator will also call out “last lap””.
  • The race ends upon completion of the 12th lap (finish).
  • After crossing the finish line, all riders must leave the course on the right-hand side after about 50m.

Technical requirements

  • All (racing) bicycles with distinct racing handlebars (no aero road handlebars) without any trailers and without disc wheels.
  • No time trial bicycles.
  • No triathlon bicycles.
  • Helmets are obligatory.
  • Disc brakes are allowed.

Health, liability (applies to both races)

All participants are advised to have a medical examination prior to the tournament. All participants are again reminded that they must adhere to the Dutch traffic regulations, which they must verify with their signature when registering. With this signature the participant also confirms that he/she has taken out a valid liability insurance and accident insurance with an insurance company approved in the Netherlands. Each participant is also aware of any risks not covered by his/her private insurance.
