PERFORMANCE YES, BUT PLEASURE FIRST !
L’Alsacienne Événements, the association that created the L’Alsacienne cyclosportive, is changing its approach in 2021.
The event is aimed at cyclists who want to race against themselves, rather than for a high ranking, in a spirit of friendliness and fair play, riders who are looking for a challenge, but also to discover and share emotions and efforts in a mountain range that abounds in so many treasures for those who take the time to notice them. Performance yes, but pleasure first!
In consultation with the French Cycling Federation, in 2021 L’Alsacienne will test a change in the federal rules for “rando-sportives” (non-competitive sportives) on the BRAMONT and PLATZER courses.
The services, safety plan and organisation of rando-sportives are the same as for cyclosportives. Rando-sportives are timed and results are drawn up, listed in alphabetical order, including the total time and intermediate times. This change means that entrants do not need a sports licence or a medical certificate.
L’Alsacienne 2021 will also include a non-timed randonnée on the COL AMIC course. All types of bikes are accepted, including e-bikes, to ride together peacefully through the scenery and enjoy the services offered.
Finally, from now on minors can take part in the event on the BRAMONT and COL AMIC courses. The entry conditions are indicated on the website.
We welcome you to these exceptional courses designed to suit every taste .
Please note that we are determined to implement any health measures imposed by the government authorities at the time of the 2021 event. We will treat any such measures as a further organisational challenge; you will be informed of them on this website and they will be sent to you in due course.
In 2020, the registration fee was repaid in full, even before the government order regarding sports events was promulgated. If the pandemic forces us to cancel again in 2021, and if you have entered the BRAMONT or PLATZER courses, you will be able to choose between transferring your registration to the following year, or repayment of the registration fee minus the administration fee. This does not apply to entrants for COL AMIC, as it is still possible to register on the day of the event.
We thank you for the trust you place in us, and look forward to hearing from you on 1 February 2021 for the start of registrations, and especially on 27 June 2021 for this special event, which we hope will be as great as possible.
