Flinging Threesomes

Relay Team (2 or 3 people)

  • Open (no age / sex categories)

We will allow pairs to ride in the Flinging Threesomes category. So, when wheedling or bribery has been in vain and you can’t rustle up a third rider, you and your team mate can enter the Flinging Threesomes category as a twosome. You split up the riding between transitions whichever way you choose, but each rider must do at least one stage. You will enter as a Flinging Threesome – just select Flinging Threesome (2 Person Team) as your event category.
