Some of the changes and enhancements to the 2023 OG include:

  • Electronic package pick-up
  • Online merchandise sales
  • Wave starts
  • Modified aid stations and on course support
  • Community post-event celebrations (no finish area barbeque or beer garden)

How do the Wave Starts work?
Wave starts will be based on anticipated average speed and limited to 45 riders per wave, with a 3-minute gap between waves. The longest categories (e.g. Granfondo) will start first. Participants will be assigned to check-in to one of three pre-start muster points at a designated time. From the muster point, you will move up to the start line just prior to your start time. Physical distancing will be maintained, and masks will be required in the pre-start area. Electronic chip timing will be used and considered as your official time.

Will there be any festivities after the event?
We are actively working to restore a festival-like atmosphere to our Finish Area. Details will soon be available.
