Starting Procedures 

For safety reasons this year the Flight Centre K2 and Cervelo K1 races will have staggered starts. This is to help reduce the build up of large bunches.

For Group 1 and 2 of the Flight Centre K2  you will need to have achieved a certain time at previous K2 or Taupo to qualify (see below). This is to ensure a matching of ability.

To help you choose the right group we have provided a comparison of the Flight Centre K2 times versus Taupo below.
