Registration: The rider limit has been reached – can I still get a place on the starting grid?

For the 3Laender Enduro Race powered by SANTA CRUZ  we’ve set a rider limit: 380 starting slots overall (half SOLO categories/Half DUO category). When the rider limit is first reached, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there are no more starting places as some participants may not have paid their entry fee to confirm their place. Sometimes there can also be one or two participants who can’t compete due to illness or injury. Starting places that become available in this way will be given to riders on the waiting list (in order of registration).

Registration: What is the additional accident insurance?

As the terms of participation state, we require participants to have their own insurance that covers rescue and transport costs after an accident as well as any further treatment. We are aware, however, that not all accident insurance policies cover the costs of an accident that happens in competition. It is for this reason that we offer a special sports and competition insurance through our partner svl sports. This additional insurance is OPTIONAL and so it is up to you to decide whether you are sufficiently insured to take part. The insurance is paid together with the starting fee, you'll find terms and conditions here.
