As this would act as a “dress rehearsal” all teams members (including support) need to be part of this ride.  You get to make sure your lights are working, you supplements are enough, your backup crew gets to be part of this, read a map and make sure they check in and out of check points. We will start 10am so you get to riding in the night, orientate yourself and make sure team members are all on the “same page”

This is called your monster ride before the event giving you enough time just to recover and taper before the big day arrives. Probably the most important of the 3 training camps.
