The route is monitored for any accidents, mechanical malfunctions, potential hazards on the course and to determine the last riders in order to close the event. Team members meet for an initial briefing at the entrance to the island and then deploy around the island where they sit in their vehicles to observe. Minimal walking.
Time commitment: 0615 - 1030 (4.25 hrs.)
