Spectators’ zones



This is an open race; anyone who accepts the race rules is allowed to participate.

Participants who do not complete the course, or go off the designated course, or otherwise display unsportsmanlike conduct, will be excluded from the race.

Check points will be set up along the course to allow race officials to check the passage of participants and measure interim times.

Only the organisers are allowed to use safety cars.

Participants are only allowed to consume the food and beverages available at refreshment stations.

Spare parts can only be picked up at the designated “boxes”.

Participants are allowed to pick up spare parts for take away, so that they can resolve any technical issues on the spot.

Technical assistance is only allowed to be provided in the refreshment/technical zones.

Spare parts and tools must be kept in these designated zones. Participants must make any repairs or replacements themselves or with the help of their team mates, or alternatively, they may be assisted by their own or neutral assistants standing in the refreshment/technical zones. Smaller tools, such as internal tyres or hand tools, can be provided to contestants in the refreshment/technical zones.

In addition to the technical assistance available in the refreshment/technical zones, only team mates are allowed to provide assistance.

Race number and chip or GPS device pick-up: Organisers and race officials may request the presentation of an ID document on the site.

Timing is done using a chip system, while GPS-tracking may be done using a GPS system, both of which is included in the registration fee; no extra fee will be charged for this.

No deposit needs to be paid upon the pick-up of chips or GPS devices. HUF 5,000 will be charged by the organiser per lost chips and GPS devices. If a chip or a GPS device is lost and the participant fails to pay the above amount, the organiser will collect the debt through court proceedings.

Evaluation: The male and female rider first passing through the finish line at each event will be considered to be the winner in the appropriate categories. The rest of the places will be awarded in the order of finish.

Participation in the race is allowed using mountain bikes only. Bicycles may not be equipped with an electric motor or any other integrated device which can be used for propulsion; if someone uses such a device, their result will be eliminated, and disciplinary action will be initiated against them. In any other matters, the relevant rules and regulations of the Hungarian Cycling Federation (MKSZ) shall govern. In the event of disputes, a committee consisting of a Chief Commissaire delegated by the aforementioned Federation, the Commissaire and the Chief Organiser of the race shall decide on the spot.

Limit point: race officials will secure the race course up to 3:30 p.m. By this time, riders must reach this limit point, which will be located at the “VASKAPU” refreshment point. Organisers will write down the names and times of those who arrive at the limit point after 3:30 p.m., and remove their race numbers. After this, the race will be officially ended for these participants. They will have to ride from the aforementioned limit point to the finish line in Esztergom (5 km) on an asphalt road, by obeying the traffic rules.

Only people wearing an official race number may be present on the race course.

The use of helmets is obligatory!

Everyone participates in the race at their own risk, upon registration this is considered to have been acknowledged.
