1. Retrait des dossards
To retreive your start numbers, please present yourself with the E-Ticket received by mail at :
Saturday 26/08 between 2pm and 7pm: Place Pierre Pérus, 65400 Argelès-Gazost
Sunday 27/08 between 6.30am and 7.30am: Avenue Jules Dambe, 65400 Argelès-Gazost
Start numbers are allocated directly when they are handed out. It is thus normal that you have no number prior to visiting start number pick-up.
2. Mandatory lamps
Please bring front and rear lighting for your bike. For those that will finish later in the day, luminosity might not be perfect, and this will bring additional security for you.

Please do not place the number plate directly on your frame. The plate must hang vertically at your handlebars to ensure proper functioning. Any contact with the frame might result in the timing chip failing to work properly.
4. Time barriers

– 7pm at the Luz-Saint-Sauveur feed station
