Safety Precautions: With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, additional health and safety protocols have been implemented to mitigate health threats to both our TMBRA race community and host community of Kendal County. These safety protocols are to be adhered by racers, spectators and staff alike. Your attendance at our event is your acknowledgement that you will abide by these policies while at Flat Rock Ranch.
Properly wear a mask (over your mouth and nose) when not actively riding your bike or when you cannot maintain a 6′ distance from others outside your pod. Please be respectful of others.
We will have hand sanitizing stations near port-a-potties as well as at the registration tent. In an abundance of caution, we advise everyone to refrain from hand shaking and hugging. Please be a good health steward. Don’t show up if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms. Be very mindful of touching your face and always wash or sanitize your hands after using the bathroom, sneezing, coughing, blowing your nose, eating, or touching your face. Also, consider carrying your own hand-sanitizer along with your hydration and snacks in your pack.

Finally, we will continue to monitor and follow federal, state, and local guidelines and recommendations as well as following industry best practices and policies AND RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THIS COVID-19 MITIGATION POLICY IN RESPONSE TO ANY CHANGING CONDITIONS.
