SAG (Support and Gear)
A SAG vehicle is a welcome sight for support during a race; if you have an emergency or if you encounter mechanical complications with your bike.
You may notice the SAG vehicle following the cyclists' route to ensure a
bicyclist in need has support.
You will appreciate having a SAG driver if you encounter an emergency and cannot finish the race. The driver will pick up you and your bike and transport you to the end of the race. If your injury or fatigue is not life-threatening, you may have to wait at a SAG rest point with the driver until the other riders pass through. SAG drivers can call 911 and help to clear streets if an emergency is life-threatening.
SAG support includes a final drive of the route to ensure that all cyclists have finished the race.
A professional SAG company has gear available to assist a rider with bicycle repairs.
