HOW DO I PLAN MY RIDE IN THE SOLO-CATEGORY?
In the solo-category the rider has to ride the whole race course on his/her own. The rider is allowed one support vehicle with a support crew made up of minimum 3 person, maximum 5 person. The rider cannot drive the car.
WHAT TYPE OF CAR SHOULD WE USE?
The car choice depends on the services the team wants to be able to provide in the car. Therefore multiple options are available.
CAN WE FIND FUEL AND SUPPLIES ON THE WAY?
For most part of the way you can find fuel and supplies such as water, drink and snacks at gas stations on roadsides. Usually they are maximum 150 km apart except for between Mývatn (North Iceland) and Egilsstaðir (East Iceland) where no support is to be found.
Gas stations will have longer opening hours during the event but please make sure you have a credit card with valid pin number to be able to use the self-service fuel stations if needed.
