Race Information

S.A.G. = Support and Gear

The acronym S.A.G. originated with a 1930's British expression about riders "sagging" off the back of the group. It was adapted to describe a "follow vehicle" which riders relied upon when the effort became too difficult and they dropped out of a race.

SAG often represents "support and gear"....
"gear" referring to mechanical support.

SAG Guidelines for Bike Sebring:

Please remember, we hold 4 races concurrently.
Therefore, the guidelines below must be followed for the safety of all.

NO Rolling SAG is allowed during the races

Short Loop:

SAGs may park at the ball field.
Riders MUST stop for hand-off.
No hand-offs can interfere with another rider.

Long Loop:

Racetrack:

SAGS should take a pit position to ensure safety.

No "follow-cars" or SAG will be allowed to tail a rider or interfere with other riders on the course. No more than 30 seconds may be spent beside moving rider while communicating.

Thank you for your cooperation!
