The judges decision is final. The optimum time will be set according to the ground conditions on the day. If conditions dictate, a timed section will be used. This will be clearly advertised at the start box on the day.
Competitors will not be allowed to wear stop watches. The starting time of a pair is taken as the first rider leaves the start box. The finishing time of a pair is the time at which the last rider passes through the finish.
