Terms and Conditions of Entry

 

1.1 To compete in the Maluti Double90, riders must turn at least 18 (eighteen) years old in the year of the event.

1.2 The entry fee of R8 600 per team will not be refunded if the team is unable to participate in the Maluti Double90. Should the team find another team to replace them, this change will be implemented free of charge until 15 March 2018. Should the withdrawing team wish to sell their team entry, they may not sell it for more than what they originally paid for it.

1.3 If cyclists who are entered into a team are unable to take part in the event and wish to have their entry substituted, their entry in the team may be substituted at no charge using the online management system, until 09h00 on 15 March 2019. After the substitution closing date, any additions to the team and any substitute rider must pay a substitution fee of R250, payable at Registration. The team captain must ensure that the substitute rider follows the correct substitution procedure  – team captains will be notified. If the correct procedure is not adhered to and a substitute rider is found to be riding illegally, the entire Team will be disqualified outright and could face further sanctioning. The onus is on the team captain to notify the organisers of any/all substitutions. No rider may be changed (substituted) on the day of the event. This can only be done at registration, or prior to the cut-off for team finalisation.

1.4 The Maluti Double90 will take place regardless of bad weather and will only be cancelled, re-routed or stopped for reasons of safety. In this unlikely event, entry fees are not refundable.

1.5 It is each entrant’s responsibility to update their details.

1.6 Riders consent to the use of all photographic or video material pertaining to their participation in the Maluti Double90 made by the organisers or their assignees during any activity deemed to be part of the Maluti Double90 at any time in the present or future.

1.7 The organiser reserves the right to refuse any person’s entry, or cancel any person’s entry up to the day before the Maluti Double90.

EVENT RULES

2.1 The Maluti Double90 is a team event and team members should cycle together. Teams must consist of between six and twelve members in order to obtain a result. The time of the sixth cyclist across the finish line will be taken as the team’s official time. Team members finishing behind the sixth cyclist of that team, will receive their actual finishing time, and will be listed as finishers, provided that they finish within the cut-off time. A team with less than six riders will be allowed to start the event but will not receive an official team result. Teams finishing with fewer than six members will not be eligible for any prizes and will receive the time of the last rider in that team.

2.2 Each rider must participate with a RaceTec (or Winning Time) timing chip and shall not ride with another rider’s number or timing chip without adhering to the substitution procedure referred to in clause 1.3 above. A person who has entered shall not give his/her number and/or timing chip to another person to use. No chip, no ride, no result. Teams will be checked in the line-up to the start. Teams will not be allowed to start without all their team members wearing timing chips.

2.3 Riders may not tow (be connected by means of any physical object) any fellow rider within his/her team or any other rider from another team. Riders of the same team may push other riders of the same team or hang on to fellow riders of the same team (using hands) but need to do so only when it is safe to do so.

2.4 The team captain or representative must collect the team’s race numbers and race packs on:
Friday 12 April 2019 (15h00-18h30). No registration will be done on the morning of the event.

2.5 Registration will be done per TEAM, and not per individual. Team captains are responsible for the collection of the race packs for the whole team and for distribution thereof to the individual team members. If team members are substituted at Registration, please note there is a fee of R200 per change.

2.6 The start times and start order will be communicated to the team captains and uploaded to the website one week prior to the event. Starting times must be strictly adhered to. If for whatever reason, your team starts late, your official completion time will not be adjusted – your time starts ‘counting’ at your official start time and does not get adjusted if you arrive late at the start line.

2.7 Teams must present themselves for line-up in the start area at President’s Square, Clarens, no later than 20 minutes before their scheduled start time. Please note that several ‘no parking’ zones around the Square will be enforced on the day and we strongly recommend that teams cycle to the start.

2.8 Teams are allowed to have ONE support vehicle only. The registration number of these vehicles must be given to the organisers by the team team driver during the official Support Vehicle driver briefing on Friday 12 April 2019 , 18h00 (venue to be confirmed). Teams will be disqualified should they have more than one vehicle per Support Zone, or any unofficial support vehicles at the Support Zone or on the route, or if the support vehicle does not display the official event signage.

2.9 PLEASE NOTE, Team support vehicles may not follow their teams whatsoever along the route. They may only assist their teams at the one Support Zone in Kestell and will not follow their teams along the race route to Kestell, but will travel to and from Kestell via the N5. It is the responsibility of the team captains as well as the team’s support crews to know these areas as teams WILL face disqualification should a support crew be found supporting their teams anywhere but at the demarcated team assistance area. This is a strict safety conscious decision and a ZERO TOLERENCE approach will be taken.

2.10 All support vehicles must clearly display the identification signage as supplied by the organisers. Also see 2.11.

2.11 COMPULSORY SUPPORT VEHICLE DRIVER BRIEFING: All support vehicle drivers must attend a briefing at 18h30 on Friday 13 April 2018 at the Protea Hotel Clarens. The briefing will outline the rules pertaining to support vehicles as well as the penalties that could be instilled on the team. Team vehicle signage will be handed out at this briefing. Teams will be summarily disqualified if team support vehicles do not carry the necessary official event identification, or abide by the event rules and regulations.

2.12 Cyclists who cannot continue from Kestell or who miss the cut-off must withdraw from the event and get into their support vehicle. Cyclists who cannot continue anywhere else along the route will be collected by a sweep vehicle.

GENERAL RULES

3.1 Every rider shall ride carefully and with due regard to the safety of other cyclists and other road users.

3.2 Every rider shall wear a bicycle helmet with the strap securely fastened under his/her chin for the entire duration of the event. (No helmet, no ride.)

3.3 Every rider shall immediately comply with the instructions of the Maluti Double90 marshals, motorbike marshals and/or traffic officers. All Maluti Double90 appointed staff and crew will be clearly identifiable.

3.4 Every rider shall immediately provide the relevant information as requested by a Maluti Double90 marshal, motorbike marshal and/or traffic officer. All Maluti Double90 appointed staff and crew will be clearly identifiable.

3.5 Every rider shall keep as far to the left of the road surface as is safe having regard to the circumstances and conditions. Riders will not cross the median or white line, unless specifically so instructed by a traffic official.

3.6 Every rider shall at all times display his/her race number legibly and ensure it is pinned on to the back of his/her shirt. Riders are also requested to affix the number provided to the front of the handlebars and helmet. This will assist with easy identification of teams and will help the crew to guide riders to the correct group on the morning of the event.

3.7 Every rider shall identify him/herself and give his/her personal details upon request to a Maluti Double90 marshal, motorbike marshal and/or traffic officer, and to any other rider and/or official requesting such information after a collision or race incident.

3.8 A rider shall not ride a bicycle fitted with triathlon, time trial or “Spinachi”-type bars and the organisers reserve the right to disallow the use of certain types of bladed wheels that are considered unsafe.

3.9 Every rider shall ride the full Maluti Double90 course or retire if he/she does not complete the full Maluti Double90 course. Riders who did not complete the full course under own steam, undertake to not cross the finish line and timing mats. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action against the rider and the team may be disqualified in its entirety.

3.10 Riders are required to reach the Maluti Double90 finish line in Clarens by 16h30. Cut-offs will also be implemented along the route. A sweep vehicle will indicate the rolling closure of the course. The rolling road closure is calculated from the time the last team crossed the start line. Any rider found on the route after the cut-off time, will face disqualification.

3.11 Each rider must complete the route within 9 hours of elapsed riding time in order to receive a result.

3.12 There will be no ‘time-out’ period at the Supporter Zone and time spent at water points and feeding stations will count towards the team’s overall race time.

3.13 A rider may not use a personal music system, e.g. iPod, or a radio communication device, including a cellular phone, whilst riding.

3.14 A slower team may not draft a faster team and the onus is on the team being overtaken to fall back and open a gap immediately after being overtaken. Teams will be disqualifies for drafting and/or riding together. Should an individual cyclist be dropped from their team, he/she may ride behind another team if that team gives their permission. Such a rider must not interfere with the speed that this team is travelling at.

3.15 A rider shall not use foul or offensive language or make offensive, indecent or inappropriate gestures.

3.16 A rider shall wear clothing appropriate for a family event at all times. Our minimum requirement is a cycling top, cycling pants, helmet and the appropriate footwear.

3.17 A rider shall not dispose of any litter – including water bottles, gel sachets and food – along the Maluti Double90 course, except in refuse bins.

3.18 A rider shall not smoke on the route during the Maluti Double90, except at a designated smoking area if provided.

3.19 A rider may not start or attempt to start before his/her designated start group. Any rider who does so may be disqualified. Riders or teams who start after their designated start time, will not have their start time adjusted.

3.20 A rider shall complete the Maluti Double90 course with his/her own effort and shall not receive any assistance in this regard other than drafting behind or being pushed by another rider or riders of his/her own team in the TOKENDouble90. No slipstreaming of motor vehicles, nor holding onto motor vehicles is permitted whatsoever, with time penalties or possible disqualification for a team or any individual team member who slipstreams motorised vehicles. Motor vehicles may not pace riders back to their teams, or to other riders. Cyclists may receive assistance from other participants in the event.

3.21 No participant may accept a lift in any vehicle for any part of the route, except when withdrawing from the event.

3.22 The N5 is dangerous with fast-moving traffic. Teams must therefore ride in single file within the road shoulder from the turn-off from Clarens onto the N5 (at roughly 30 km) until exiting Bethlehem, and exercise extreme caution when overtaking another team.

The section through the Golden Gate reserve does not have a generous road shoulder and teams are requested to stay left and ride no more than two abreast, except when overtaking another team.

Other than at the start and finish and Supporter Zone, there is no road closure along the route and teams are expected to obey all traffic rules.

3.23 TEAMS MUST STAY APART: One team may not, under any circumstances, join another team along the route and teams are required to remain apart, except when overtaking.

3.24 When a team overtakes another team, they must ride in single file until clear of the other team.

3.25 We appeal to participants to ride no more than two abreast, in order to assist with the easy flow of traffic.

3.26 A rider shall be responsible to other riders for the proper control of his/her bicycle.

3.27 A rider shall provide reasonable assistance to any other rider involved in an accident while participating in the Maluti Double90.

3.28 A rider may not participate whilst under the influence of alcohol or any drug or medication that prevents or might prevent a rider from properly controlling his/her bicycle.

3.29 A rider shall not display on his/her bicycle, clothing and cycling equipment any writing, logo or item that is offensive or that may bring the Maluti Double90 into disrepute, as determined by the Pedal Power Association.

3.30 A rider who is informed by a Maluti Double90 marshal that his/her conduct may lead to him/her being disqualified shall immediately report to the organiser’s office when completing the course.

3.31 Any reasonable medical or emergency evacuation costs incurred on behalf of a rider by the Maluti Double90 will be for the cost of the rider.

3.32 Team categories will be determined by the first 6 riders from each team that crosses the finish line, and not according to the way the team is entered. Categories for the 2017 Maluti Double90 will be Open, Mixed, and Ladies. Six teams must start in a specific category for prizemoney to be awarded in that category.

The categories are determined as follows:
• Ladies – all Ladies Teams must have only ladies starting in their team. This team may have any number between 6 and 12 riders.
• Mixed – a minimum of 3 ladies need to finish within the first 6 riders of this team. Failing to do so will result in this team being classified as an Open Team. There will only be a first place prize awarded in this category, provided there are at least 5 mixed teams competing.
• Open Team – An Open Team may consist of male riders only, or teams with less than 3 female riders.
• Teams with single bikes and tandems combined will be given an official team time (Open Team) but will not be eligible for any team prizes.
•  NEW in 2018: There will be one prize for the team that finishes with all their starters, and who displays the most camaraderie and team spirit along the route and during the event, as judged by the event officials

Protests must officially be lodged at the JOC at the Protea Hotel, Clarens with the Race Director or Chief Commissaire.

4.11 Based on the information provided, the Protest Committee will decide to accept or reject the protest until such time that they feel there is enough information to carefully consider the protest, if at all.
