Timing Each individual will be supplied with a standard chip. The chip cannot be given to anyone else, under penalty of disqualification. Within 2 hours of the end of the event, the chip must be returned to the location specified by the organizers. The organizers must be paid €35 for any chip that is not returned.
Numbers Front and back numbers will be supplied to ensure that each rider is recognizable.
Jersey “Only One” riders must each wear a jersey that is different from the team jerseys and from the other “Only One” riders’ jerseys. Multiple riders will not be allowed to wear the same jerseys.
Rain/wind jacket In the event of bad weather, use of a transparent jacket is recommended to aid in the identification of race numbers.
Safety car In the event of an accident involving one or more riders, a wet circuit due to rain, or any other occurrence that makes the course dangerous, the safety car will be brought out. From the moment the safety car enters the circuit, for any of the reasons given, the race will be neutralized and the lap count stopped for all participants. The race will resume when the safety car leaves the circuit, upon communication from the race director.
Traffic flow During the race, participants must keep to the right and leave room for faster riders to pass on the left.
“Only One” Assistance
Assistance area Near the entrance to the exchange area, the organizers will provide a gazebo (unattended) for individual riders, for support and rest during breaks. No reservations are necessary. Individuals may set up cots or other material, respecting others’ space.
Mechanical assistance In the event of a flat tire or other mechanical problem, changing the tire or wheel or making any other necessary repairs is the responsibility of the rider.
In the event of a mechanical problem, the rider must still complete his or her current lap in the correct direction and exit from the circuit rather than turning around and riding back against the flow of the race.
Any type of mechanical assistance alongside or within the race circuit is forbidden, upon penalty of disqualification.
Food breaks Each individual will manage his or her food and rest breaks independently. Assistance is the rider’s responsibility and must take place in the areas specified by the organization for team assistance. Food and drink handoffs during the race are not allowed; as with teams, individuals must leave and reenter the circuit through the exchange area. Handoffs from behind the barriers or along the course are forbidden.
“Adopt an individual” The organizers are promoting the “adopt an individual” initiative among all the teams registered for the 24-hour race. Each team will be asked if it is willing to host an “Only One” rider during the race. It is a voluntary initiative that should not affect anyone’s participation but is intended as a way to make the solo riders (who may not be able to bring friends or family along) feel part of the big celebration of cycling. The team spaces are located along the race route, so a team that agrees to host a solo rider may be near the exchange area or on the opposite side of the course. It is up to the individual rider to request “adoption” through the administrative office and to accept or decline any invitations received.
Equipment Handlebar extensions and aero bars are forbidden. Road bikes or mountain bikes may be used. In the event of a mechanical failure, a bicycle can be changed during the race.
Lights During the nighttime hours, from 20:00 to 6:00, lights are mandatory; they must be clearly visible and attached only to the bike frame. The race directors, at their sole discretion, may prevent riders from starting if they are not in compliance with the rules.
Hard-shell helmet Obligatory.
Classification The first THREE individual riders completing the most laps at the end of the 24 hours will receive prizes.
Claims Any complaints during the event must be presented in written form to the race directors, who will evaluate them together with the competent authorities (organizers and race jury). Any claims regarding the results of the race must be presented via fax (+39 0439 300600) within 24 hours of the publication of the official classification on the website www.24orefeltre.com, accompanied by a €50 deposit, which will be returned in the event of an accepted claim.
Claims and complaints presented to the managers of the timing service will not be accepted.
Assistance area – food related:
As with the teams, in accordance with regulations relating to the preparation and serving of food, the event organizers, in cooperation with the municipal police and ULSS 2 (the local health authority), have established that each assistance area be allowed the use of a single tank of gas, a single fire to heat food, and a grill. The sale and serving of food or beverages to persons other than the rider’s support staff (only the rider and friends and family) is forbidden, as is the sale of souvenirs or other products, under penalty of expulsion of the rider from the race and of those responsible from the assistance area.
Every “Only One” rider who has an assistance area is REQUIRED to fill out the ULSS form supplied by the organizers and return it, completed in its entirety, by no later than Monday, June 6,
- in person to the office at Via Montelungo 21 in Feltre,
- via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or
- via fax to +39 0439 300600.
The documentation will then be sent to ULSS 2 in Feltre for any further action. Failure to submit the completed form will result in the rider losing his or her right to a space in the assistance area.
