The action tomorrow over Mike Etherington-Smith’s cross-country course starts at 10am (9am British time) and is scheduled to finish around 3.30pm (2.30pm) if there are no significant holds.
Riders have flagged up the water fences — there are four, although only three actual ponds as one of them is crossed twice — as likely to be the most influential obstacles on the course.
