Each team must have a nominated team captain. This person does not have to ride themselves but is responsible for collecting and distributing event jerseys and ID tags to team members. You will be able to collect these in January shortly before the ride. If you are unable to collect these items, you will need to let the Bupa Challenge Tour team know in writing who will be collecting the jerseys on your behalf. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with these details if they have changed.
