In case of individual participation, the rider will have to be equipped with a geo localization device wich will be provided by the organisation, at the agreed price, and wich will have to be active during all the route.
There is more complete information about the compulsory and recommended gear at the PARTICIPANT AREA.
Since the participant is always subject to the rules of the open traffic from Catalunya, Aragón, Navarra and Euskadi, as well as a part of south France, it is the responsibility of the participant to know and meet these rules and its foremost consequences in terms of equipment, behaviour etc. (e.g., lighting when riding inside tunnels).
If a team of three members lose one of its participants, it will not be considered official Transpyr team anymore, but two individual participants.
Every participant of a team who wants to continue in the event individually will have to be provided with the geo localization device offered by the organisation and pay the estimated amount for it. Transpyr insists in the recommendation to ride in groups with other participants and never alone.
In the evening, before the briefing for the next stage, the participants will be provided with a carbohydrate based meal also known as Pasta Party. On arrival at the very last day this meal can be changed into a final celebration event.
The organization cannot guarantee that this meal is sufficient for the needs of every and each of the participant.
Departure and Arrival of each stage play the role of control points.
Finally, the organization may set a time limit at the finish line of each stage. Participants who arrive after this finish line time limit may continue the route next day but will not be eligible to be FINISHER of TRANSPYR 2017.
42. The participant that have abandoned, may continue to bike further stages as NO FINISHER and even to complete the event with either the same team or another team. In that case, the organization is not obliged to transport him/her from stage to stage. If this participant wants to continue as individual, he/she will have to adquire the geo localization device provided by the organisation and pay the required amount for it. Transpyr insists to ride in group with other participants and never alone. 42 Participants who are still in the event as NO FINISHER and arrive at any check point after the last Finisher participant (rider in the event), will be retired from this stage and transported to the finish area.
