The event organiser therefore allocates bib numbers once the registration platform has closed, so the bike park placing may be done in a logical way and they can:

1/ Group together members of the same club (if the club is indicated when registering)

2/ Group together staff of the same company (via the company procedure – cf. here above)

3/ Maintain the chronological order of registration: if friends register one after the other, they are more likely to be nearby in the bike park.

To enable a good swim for everyone, the swim start will take place in free-to-choose sections: PROFESSIONAL – EXPERT – INTERMEDIATE – BEGINNER.

However, please do not worry about timing: ranking and timing will be done in real-time, as the stop-watch will automatically be set off when the competitor crosses the start line.

According to the races, the start will be a mass start by waves or a rolling start.

Timing and ranking are done in real-time: the stop-watch automatically sets off when the competitor crosses the start line.
