Check the cut-off times for each stage
Granfondo Yunnan is for the majority of riders not a race but an individual cycling challenge with as big aim to complete all the stages. Not only complete them, but also complete them within the assigned cut-off times (COT). While these COTs are generally very generous, when it comes to the big climbing stages in Tengchong and Lijiang, it may be good to be aware of just how much time you can spend resting at the various water stations along the course. Please find attached a printable PDF with the cut-off times at various checkpoints and water stations during the event. Please note that if you are unable to reach these points before the assigned cut-off time, for whatever reason, we must stop you. Please respect that and do not discuss with our staff and volunteers should this happen to you. As technical organisers of the event we also have our orders from local authorities, who are under pressure to keep the roads as traffic-free and as safe as possible. Translate your frustration into determined training for next year’s edition.
