Please note that in our competition, all athletes will compete in their born-given gender category. Additionally, we are offering as usual an open category that is open to all genders. We recognize the importance of fair competition for all athletes, while acknowledging the limitations of our organization's infrastructure and resources. As such, we are unable to ensure a correct and fair process of checking blood testosterone levels for eligibility in the women's fleet.

We are working to create alternative eligibility categories that consider the unique physiological characteristics of transgender athletes. Our goal is to create a level playing field for all athletes while promoting inclusivity and respect for diversity.

Every rider has responsibility for himself. He/she has to have all insurances needed. The organizer will not take any responsibility for rescue operations nor racing accidents.
