Ride or Race

Participants may ride any, or all, of the stages, while not qualifying for any of the prizes if anything less than the full distance is covered. This ruling only applies to non-licensed and non-racing individuals, whose intention it is to enjoy the sights, sounds and hospitality of the Boland. Racing the TdB  means you will be vying for the King, Queen or Sprinters Jerseys.
