Rider registration

Registration opens on the 1st of December 2018 (GMT 10:00h) and closes when there are no more spots available or on the 31st December 2018. The selection criteria is: be fast to secure a spot! After this process you’ll receive an email confirming your registration – this doesn’t mean you got a spot. Please read Registration Process and Terms and Conditions before moving forward with your registration.

+ REGISTRATION PROCESS +

  • 1. When registration opens, fill out the form in a correct way! Forms that are filled incorrectly won’t be considered.
  • 2. After registration you’ll get an email (check SPAM box!). This email is just a confirmation that we got your registration process but it doesn’t mean you were one of the fastest.
  • 3. If you were one of the fastest you’ll get an email with payment information and you should send visual payment proof (print-screen or PDF) in 48 hours time. After sending payment proof we’ll confirm your registration and you are in the race! Your entry will be confirmed and validated after sending visual payment proof and when we get payment in our account.
  • 4. If you weren’t one of the fastest you’ll get an email informing that you are on the waiting list. If a racer that was faster than you does not send payment proof in 48 hours time you’ll be informed shortly after.
  • 5. If this happens, you’ll have to send payment proof in 48 hours time or you’ll loose your spot.

+ TERMS AND CONDITIONS +

  • 1. Bank transfer is the only payment method. We do not accept PayPal or other payment methods. After registration and confirmation of being one of the fastest, payment proof needs to be sent in 48 hours time after you get payment information email.
  • 2. One form per racer. If you’re planning to race with more friends and trying to be fast get everyone in separate computers to make this process quicker. There will be a question in the registration form asking if you’re racing with friends or family – please mention their names as we’ll make arrangements for you to stat together along the week.
  • 3. From the moment your registration is complete, paid and confirmed, we do not accept cancelations or make any type of refunds.
  • 4. We strongly advise you to purchase travel insurance where you can include your expenses in case you can’t attend the race. In case you can’t attend the race and need to activate the insurance we’ll get your invoice to confirm your payment.
  • 5. You are responsible for assuming all extra payments from your bank, including exchange rates.
  • 6. Your entry is transferable till 15st march 2019, with an extra fee of 100€. If you wish to transfer your entry to another racer, you need to inform the organizers. It’s your duty to find that racer. Entry transfers and payment arrangements should be done between racers. After that date your entry is not transferable.
  • 7. We have an event cancelation policy, which means that organizers reserve the right to cancel the event if there aren’t enough riders to satisfy production costs. If that happens, you’ll be fully refunded. With that said, we advise you to not book flights before the 10th January 2019, after we confirm all registrations and do the final communication. In the case of confirmation of the event before that date you’ll be contacted via email.
  • 8. On location you’ll be asked to sign a responsibility term / waiver of liability form about acknowledging the risks of mountain bike racing and exonerating the organizers and its sponsors. You won’t be able to compete without signing this.
  • 9. The organizers reserve the right to cancel stages due to unexpected or extreme weather conditions that could put racers in risk.
  • 10. The event has insurance for all racers but they are free to use their own. Organizers must be informed during registration about this choice. Racers need to agree with terms and conditions of the insurance that it’s being proposed to them during registration. In case of activation of the insurance, racer needs to pay a deductible (value to be confirmed).
  • 11. All event communication is done via email, that being the official way to reach out competitors. We strongly advise you to add info@trans-madeira.com to your contacts and check SPAM box. We’re not responsible if a racer does not check information sent.
