If emergency help is required stop an event support vehicle, ask for assistance at any of the rest stops, if nearby, or call for help on 0459 593 689 .

Maximum ride times for each of the four events are stipulated in the event support time listed under each event.  While event organisers will make every effort to ensure that all participants return to USQ to complete the event they have entered there are practical limitations to just how long support facilities at the USQ campus can remain in operation.  Events are organised to have all rides back at the finish point by 12:00 pm.  In compliance with our operational requirements and granted permissions all event facilities will close at 1:00pm.  Following this time the site will be packed up and cleared in readiness for normal USQ operations the next day.

In an effort to ensure all riders are able to meet the requirements Imperial 100 participants who do not reach C Beckwith Rd at the  64.61 km point by 9:30am will be required to detour onto the Classic 100 route.  Any who choose to continue on the 169km route will not be supported by the official event support team.
