Day 3 – Lake Hawea to Haast
All support vehicles will leave before the start. Only our race control, ambulance and safety cars will be allowed to drive with riders. We have carefully reached this stage. Be aware that there are several one-way bridges and 30 kilometres of narrow road with no shoulders. There could be traffic lights in one short section as well. Please ride single file and when safe wave through any traffic accumulating behind you. Road gage is not an option. Though traffic is generally light, tour buses and camper vans are users of this beautiful roadway as well! Be very considerate and careful. The stage will be shortened in the event of extreme weather.
