Please adhere to the following T.A. rules:

Please remove your gear promptly after your race. The transition area will be secure until 12:00pm race day. The bike you take in and out of the transition must have a matching bib number to the bib number on your person. Make sure your bike has your bib number on before taking it in, and please don’t take it off your bike until you leave the transition area.
