  • Bikes must be in good condition and work properly, especially the breaks
  • Bike must have a light in front and a light behind

  • The helmet must be approved with the CE mark
  • Bike replacement is not permitted; athletes are allowed to switch the wheels in case of mechanical problems. In this case, the organization must be informed

Mandatory Equipment from T3

  • From T3 and during the climb at Carosello 3000, athletes and their support volunteers will have to have a rucksack containing:
    – front light (you can use the one used in the first part of the race)
    – heating effect t-shirt
    – waterproof jacket with hood (see specifications listed below)* – ankle-length windproof trousers
    – gloves and hat
    – suitable water and food supplies
    – mobile phone with number communicated to the organization (mobile phone of the support is ok)*waterproof jacket with hood

We consider suitable those technical jackets with integral hood made of membranes having certified breathability and water impermeability technology, as shown on the label (some examples: Event, Gore-Tex®, PacLite®, Gore-Tex®Pro, Gore-Tex® Active, Lowe Alpine Triplepoint®, Marmot MemBrain®, Mountain Hardwear Conduit). Given the unpredictability of the weather conditions in Alpine environments, we recommend using jackets with impermeability of 20,000 mm and breathability of RET < 6.

Athletes unable to certify the technology of their garment may show to the person responsible for checks that their jacket is made with technology that guarantees impermeability and breathability using the Internet support available to the steward on site, who we assure is a person with professional qualities connected to the world of sporting clothing. As testing of race garments is unfeasible, manufacturing data will be deemed acceptable. Should such data not be shown and the information demonstrated, the decision whether to accept the jacket or not will be at the sole discretion of the said person making the checks.

 

All this equipment will be checked at the collection of the race pack and also in T3. Those who will not have all the above equipment will not be allowed to climb towards Carosello 3000

  • The medical team has the discretion to stop athletes at any time if they believe that they are no longer able to carry on the race
  • Athletes may be subject to doping controls decided by the national bodies
  • During the bike and run courses, athletes can bring along a cell phone, to be used only in case of emergency while stopping at the side of the road
