RULES

# RIDE SAFELY, RIDE RESPONSIBLY

You must know, observe and comply with local traffic laws.
Helmet, front and rear lights and reflective vest at night are mandatory.

# RIDE UNDER YOUR OWN POWER

Just you and your bike. That’s all.
Drafting is not allowed, except for pairs category riders.

# BE SELF-SUFFICIENT

This is bikepacking. That means food, drink and belongings must be carried by you or acquired unplanned en-route.
Support crew or virtual base-camps is prohibited, unexpected and unrequested help en-route is allowed.

# THE ROUTE

Some of our events are No-Route: You must ride from the start to the finish visiting all mandatory Checkpoints and parcours following your own route.

# NO CATEGORIES

No male, no female, no junior, no senior…just you, a rider.

# CONTROL YOUR TRACKER

Satellite trackers will be provided to follow the race online.
During the event you are fully responsible for ensuring the correct use of it.

# BE ON TIME. ENJOY YOUR TIME

The time to finish the race is limited. After that you can’t expect any official service or support, but although the race ends your ride can go on…so just relax and enjoy your route.

# ACT IN THE SPIRIT OF BIKEPACKING COMPETITION

When people ask us how can we ensure riders comply with the rules, we always answer the same: We can’t.
The honorable agreement is inherent to bikepacking competitions. This can be a fair event, it just depends on you.
