This is a paved ultracycling event that requires road experience and above novice bikepacking skills.
You and you alone are liable for your safety. Read the rules and safety requirements here.
Please be careful, plan responsibly and properly, and understand that you enter at your own risk under your own volition.
There's a registration fee of $79 for the 2022 Sota Wheel Race (non-refundable after March 18th, 2022). Athlete cap: 100 racers.
In an attempt to streamline this process prospective riders will;
Go to BikeReg.com and complete registration.
Submit payment as directed.
A racer’s agreement and liability waiver will be sent in late winter/early spring, 2022 as a refresher of the rules and liabilities you personally take in such an endeavor as the Sota Wheel Race. The liability waiver must be sent back. This is absolute and not sending it back means forfeiting registration, fee, and ability to pedal up to the start line. YOU and YOU alone assume ALL risk.
This is an agreement between the Sota and the athlete. Its intent is to set the terms and conditions of participation. It makes clear the actions that must be agreed upon when accepting a spot (for example, liability, bike safety, and the unsupported ethos). If a rider breaks the terms of the agreement, at any time, you could be excluded from the route.
There will be no gender-based divisions. Ultracycling (and ultrarunning) studies have shown little discrepancy between ultra-endurance talent and genetics in regards to gender. Neither will the TMWR. It has been designed to be played out on a level playing field. Go pedal.
Participants will need a Spot GPS tracker. Your tracker will be used to provide live tracking of #sota22 and some sweet dot watching experiences for anybody interested in following. Live GPS tracking will be available via Trackleaders.
How It Works
You can use your own SPOT or Garmin InReach, either already activated or pay to activate it for the time on the course.
In addition, during open registration, you will have the option to rent a tracker. Limited quantities of trackers are available to rent and it is up to the athlete to have one. It is highly advisable to purchase one if you are doing these types of races.
Cost depends on if you supply your own Spot (activated or not) or renting one. Information will be updated when registration starts.
1. Rented trackers will be available for pick up in the couple of days before the start.
2. You are expected to mail the trackers back post-finish.
3. Information on connecting with the tracking company will be provided to the roster come spring.
