Campers can put up theirr tents next to the futbol field (500 metres from the start) and use the gym showers. The organizers are trying to put up some tables and chairs next to the tents for eating breakfast...

Media coverage will be even bigger than last year! Jabran Productions will be there again to film and playback the action live from various spots on the course. The spectators will have a complete view of the runs. If some small technical difficulties are overcome, the competition will be broadcast live on Normandy TV and on the internet on GlissemagTV. Ludo (who commentated during the 2007 finals) will be commentating live during all the runs!

To top it off, everyone who registers will get a DVD of the competition!!! If the entire stock of beer is consumed and the bar makes enough money (We’re not worrying too much about this) the organizers will make 10,000 copies of the DVD and you will be able to find it in all the good papers on sale with SportMag (the August 15th French issue).

The registration fee is 75 euros (£60) + 5 euros (£4) per extra discipline. It’s a bit more expensive than last year but you also get a free ride day as well!

As soon as registration is open an announcement will be made!

A French Medical Permit is OBLIGATORY for all French riders! This competition counts for the IGSA World Rankings and is open to foreign competitors without a French Medical Permit. Foreign competitors absolutely MUST present a medical certificate on site that is not older than 6 months.
