The greatest caution is made obligatory for all participants in the race. Mountain biking is a very dangerous activity! All participants assume responsibility and risk for their own safety and well-being. Each participant is obliged to adjust the speed to the conditions of the route, the weather conditions and his or her riding skills. The police regulations must be strictly followed and observed without exception! The organizer rejects any liability and responsibility for any violations and their consequences. There is an absolute obligation to wear a helmet! Level crossings secured by red lights are equivalent to closed level crossings and violations are punished according to the UCI catalog of penalties.
The same time will be used for all riders who cross the finish line in a group and separated by no more than 1 second. Penalties or disqualifications at a stage or from the event will be imposed for gross violations of the regulations. Instructions from the police and race commissioners (including medical staff) must be strictly followed under all circumstances. Helmets are compulsory throughout the event. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in immediate disqualification. Damaged helmets must be replaced. The organization may remove a competitor from the competition if his bike does not meet the requirements.
Participants must ride on the routes marked by the organization. Shortcuts or driving on unmarked trails is prohibited. Participants must cover the entire specified distance. The time-limit periode is 50% of the winning time in the respective category per stage. The jury reserves the right to remove a participant from the race or from the ranking if he has not reached the prescribed time-limit. If a competitor is unable to complete the stage due to mechanical problems or injury, the jury will decide whether the rider is allowed to continue the race. Prizes will only be paid if at least 5 participants start in each category.
