TOGEVERESTING Ts&Cs

 Possenia's Togeveresting Event is open to all 

Participants under 18 years of age must provide an authorization from their parents when collecting their bib number at the start. The event takes place on roads open to car traffic so all participants must have a good understanding and consideration of road rules.

 

The participants commit to respecting traffic rules, and especially to ride through roundabouts on the right side. They must ride on the right side of the road, in a line, control their speed and trajectory, and follow the instructions of the officials and volunteers on course. Any infraction to the traffic rules or to the rules of the event will incur an immediate disqualification.

 

 Covid-19 

Recovered - Vaccinated - Tested: One of these three conditions must be presented at the entrance of the start/finish area by means of the Covid-19 certificate and an official ID. If the certificate is missing or invalid, participation in Possenia's Togeveresting event is not possible, unfortunately. This is only due to cantonal restrictions on sporting events. The entry place must unfortunately be cancelled and a partial refund given or a transferal of your entry to the following year.  Important information will be continuously communicated on the website to already registered participants by e-mail (please check your spam folder regularly). This includes special measures imposed by the canton of Vaud due to epidemiological developments. Please do sign up to the Togeveresting event news list so we can keep you up to date.

 

 Safety 

 

When descending, we strongly encourage all participants to be excessively cautious. The roads have little traffic but may have some traffic thus, it is critical to be hyper-vigilant on descents. 

 

Wearing a helmet is mandatory, participants must mount the frame number on their bike, fill out an emergency contact information and carry the sheet with them during the event.

The participants must make sure that their bike is functioning properly and while the event will be supported with mechanical and medical assistance, it is strongly recommended to ensure your bike is in proper working form prior to the race. 

 

 Signange 

The whole course is marked with Togeveresting arrow signs. Participants commit to informing themselves about the course ahead of the event, and to staying on the official course on event day. 

Time limits hours 8 minutes and 48 seconds to climb as much as you can. After this, the cycling part of the event ends and no further climbing will be counted. 

 

 Food and drink provisions 

Possenia provides generous food and drinks stations at the start and there is a refreshment station at the top of the climb. Throughout the day, you will have access to sufficient refreshments to ensure you can ride to your heart's content.

 

 Registrations 

The date of the payment is considered as the registration date. The entry fees are published on

www.possenia.com and are final. Participants cancelling their registration for any reasons will not receive a full refund of their entry fee, only a partial refund, however a transfer of their registration to the next edition of the event is possible. If the event could not take place because of a decision of the authorities linked with the COVID-19 pandemic, all registrations will be transferred to the next edition. In case of complaint, the reception of the payment is considered the only valid proof of payment. 

A transfer of the bib number to another person is possible by informing the Posenia by e-mail, however, in the event that the registration was an early-bird registration with a customized jersey, there is not possibility to receive a different jersey - the customized jersey is tied to the initial registration. Possenia excludes all responsibility in case of dispute between the two persons concerned.

For 'Register now, pay later' entries, the ticket invoice must be settled in full prior to the event.
