Insurances

What is the Personal Accident Insurance?

This Personal Accident Insurance is offered by the organiser's insurer so that you are correctly covered during your participation in the Roc d'Azur ;It is optional but is strongly recommended.

As you may know, the vast majority of your usual insurance policies (particularly your car insurance, insurance provided automatically through your bank cards, household insurance, bank loan insurance, etc.) totally exclude any participation in sports events either on an amateur or professional basis, and therefore exclude the risks involved in your taking part in the Roc d'Azur.

It is therefore important that you check the extent of the cover provided by your normal insurance policies (and the exclusions) and, if you are not sufficiently covered or not covered at all, you should consider taking out the proposed insurance policies by clicking on the link below.

This insurance will cover you if you have an accident whilst taking part in the event, whether or not you were responsible and whether or not there is an identified responsible third party. You are only covered during the event from the time you cross the starting line until the time you cross the finishing line or you abandon the event.

In the event of an accident during your participation in the event, it covers:

  • Medical costs (within the limits that you have chosen)
  • In the event of death or total or partial permanent disability (due to this accident): the payment of compensation (within the limits that you have chosen)

This cover Individual Accident is optional but highly recommended. It can be taken out in addition to any existing insurance you may already have or if you are not already covered. You may purchase the cover from the insurer of your choice, from your federation or from Aon, organizer’s broker, whose proposal (detailed notice and application form) can be consulted and downloaded by clicking on the link below. You can subscribe to the option of your choice during your registration for the event or at any time before the start of the event.

If you signed up for cancellation insurance when you registered ?

You must apply for a refund within a period of 15 days before the date of the event and 15 days after the event on this platform. A supporting document proving your inability to take part in the event will be requested. If this is a medical certificate, it must be dated no more than two days after the event. Refunds will be paid by bank transfer within three months after the event.

Equipment

What equipment is required ?

All bikes used at the Roc d’Azur must comply with the official standards currently in force, as defined by the FFC (French Federation of Cycling) and the UCI. Participants are fully responsible for ensuring that the equipment they use, and its state of repair, are in accordance with current standards. For safety reasons and to reduce the risk of incidents during races, all participants are required to comply with the following rules regarding equipment.

“Mountain electric bike are exclusively accepted on races countening the word “RANDO” in their names and on the Enduroc Electrique. The use of an electric bike on a race non fitting those criteria will disqualify the participant and will be considered as no longer in the race”

Find the mandatory equipment in the rules of the event.

What do you recommend for someone taking part in their first Rando Roc ?

Ideally, experienced riders who have not taken part in competitions, should use a “full suspension” bike. This is the most suitable bike in terms of comfort because it has front and back suspension to absorb shocks. However, it is also possible to do the Roc with a semi-rigid bike, because the routes are not too tough. You can find the mandatory equipment in the rules of the event.

D-Day

Is there a bike park ?

Yes, a secure bike park is available day and night, at a price of €2 per day and €5 per night.

Are recovery treatments available ?

A team of osteopaths are available either before or after your race.

After the race

When will the results be published ?

The results will be available on the evening of each event on the official website.

Are there rankings ?

Of course, you can measure yourself against the other participants, with the exception of the randos.

When can I find my photos after the race ?

All photos will be available the week after the event at Sportograf.
