For safety reasons this year the Flight Centre 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 Flight Centre 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.
