Please note that you might be asked to remove the battery of your electric bike, for safety reason. Also, a special attention will be brought to the bikes which tires are wider than 3.5" during boarding. All of this has to do with certification and approval, don't be surprise and stay focus!

I can't find the departure point I want: If the village-resort does not appear in the choices on the registration system it means that resort is full. Alternative departure points will be listed.
I can't register: - close the session and try again from another browser - if this doesn't work, send an email to email@example.com In 2021, no new registration is possible due to the postponement of the 2020 event. That is why you cannot register this year.
