How to get my participant’s accessories?

What are the mandatory equipments?
Before giving you the French Divide 2019 racer’s accessories the organization will check that you have all the required equipment:

  • 1 helmet
  • 1 yellow jacket (vest, gilet, tabard, you name it) with reflecting stripes
  • lightning kit : at least 1 white light in front and 1 red light on the back (1 headlamp is highly recommended but not mandatory)
  • 1 whistle
  • 1 GPS for the trace

I can see a difference of elevation between my GPS and what you announced. Why?
We announced a distance and an elevation from a precise gps trace. However you might see a difference of elevation between what we announced and your gps device. This difference will depend on the kind of itinerary platform you use.

Can I recharge the batteries of my devices on the checkpoints? 
Checkpoints will be in natural areas so we cannot guarantee this service.
