SAFETY PLAN FOR CYCLISTS

The cut-off times enable any suitably-trained cyclists to easily reach the finish point within the time allowed. This system protects the health and safety of cyclists, and also benefits the 250 volunteers waiting for the cyclists.

The first cut-off time for the PLATZER and BRAMONT courses is located at the Markstein, a mountain resort at the crossroads of the courses, located at 31km from Cernay after a total climb of 1200 metres.

The second cut-off time for the PLATZER and BRAMONT courses is at the Col du Herrenfluh, at the bottom of the climb leading to the finish point with a gradient of 11% over 1.5 km.

Transfers or disqualification due to these two cut-off times are explained below on this page.

The organisation reserves the right to change the time limits according to weather conditions and the needs of the event in cases of force majeure. Any changes will immediately be announced.
