For safety reasons this year the K2 and Cervelo K1 races will have staggered starts. This is to help reduce the build up of large bunches.
For Group 1 and 2 of the K2 you will need to have achieved a certain time at previous K2 or Taupo to qualify (see below). This is to ensure a matching of ability.
To help you choose the right group we have provided a comparison of the K2 times versus Taupo below.
The starting groups will be as follows:
|Group 1||50||Under 5:40||4%||Under 4:10|
|Group 2||50||5:40 - 5:49||3%|
|Group 4||60||6:00- 6:09||6%|
|Group 5/6||120||6:10-6:19||8%||4:30 Plus|
