Updated 03/29/2024


The RACE ACROSS SERIES events (hereinafter referred to as the events) are organized by the following associations ULTRA CYCLING France and RIDE EAT SLEEP & SHARE, in partnership with Across and Beyond Endurance AG (hereinafter A.B.E or the Organizer).

This document defines :

(i) the sporting regulations of the events (hereinafter the Regulations),

(ii) the general terms and conditions of sale applicable to any order of products or services relating to events placed with the Organizer via the NJUKO registration platform (hereinafter the A.B.E. General Terms and Conditions of Sale).

The terms "you", "your" and "yours" refer to you, as a participant or consumer or as a legal representative or legal guardian (over 18 years of age) if such participant or consumer is a minor in his or her country of residence.

Your registration for events implies your express and unreserved acceptance of the present A.B.E. Regulations and General Terms and Conditions of Sale.

Only the legal representative of a minor may register this minor child for events. Also, if parental authority is exercised jointly, the legal representative of the minor child guarantees the Organizer that the other holder of parental authority has read and unreservedly accepted the present document. The present document supplements the Conditions of Use of the online registration platform known as NJUKO (hereinafter NJUKO), accessible at

In case of contradiction between the terms of the NJUKO Terms of Use, the present A.B.E General Terms of Sale and the Regulations, the terms of the Regulations shall prevail over the A.B.E General Terms of Sale, which shall themselves prevail over the NJUKO Terms of Use.

The Organizer may revise and update the A.B.E General Terms and Conditions and the Regulations at any time; please consult them regularly, and before participating in events.

In the event of a major change to the General Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or the Regulations, the Organiser will endeavour to notify you by e-mail to the e-mail address given on NJUKO when you registered.

NJUKO's role:

The NJUKO site, through which you have placed your order, allows professional sellers and organizers to list and sell their products and services. Although the NJUKO platform facilitates transactions, NJUKO is not the seller or organizer of the products and services related to theevent.

Accordingly, for the sale of event-related products or services, a contract of sale is formed solely between you and the Organizer. The Organizer is responsible for the sale of event-related products or services and for any claims or other issues arising out of or in connection with the sales contract between you and the Organizer.


Our so-called GRAVEL events are mass-competition events with a mass start (or in waves with intervals between starting age categories) that is timed for all participants and separate results by age category and gender. Riders must respect the rules of the road throughout the entire event.

In the event of malfunction of the GPS tracker supplied by the organization, all material evidence (sales receipts) and immaterial evidence (photos, videos) will be examined by the organization to validate compliance with the rules. The route will take you through sumptuous landscapes and panoramas, allowing you to discover in depth the regions of the countries crossed. The route open to traffic is common to all categories. Clearly marked refreshment points along the route are reserved exclusively for clearly identified participants. You can choose to take part solo, or in teams of two (2) or four (4) friends, team-mates, colleagues...

The route is not signposted, but will be made available to participants in the form of a GPX link sent to each participant a week before the event by the organization, by email communication, and this route is common to all participants. 


The present sporting regulations (hereinafter the Regulations) apply to all participants in the events. They form an integral part of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale referred to above and comply with the regulations of the French Cycling Federation specific to GRAVEL cycling.

In the event of any conflict with the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the provisions of the Regulations shall prevail.

In order to ensure the health and safety of participants, the Organizer may issue a Health Protocol, including in particular the need to present a document attesting to the participant's non-infection with the COVID-19 virus in order to gain access to events.

In order to take part in the events, the participant must strictly comply with the aforementioned Sanitary Protocol and acknowledges the Organizer's right to refuse participation/access to - or to exclude from - the events any participant who fails to comply with the aforementioned measures, without the Organizer being held responsible or liable in any way.

You will be informed of the provisions of this Sanitary Protocol by a communication sent to the e-mail address given when you registered with NJUKO.


It is the responsibility of any runner in difficulty or seriously injured to call for help:

  • By calling the Operational Management Centre (telephone number on the frame plate)

  • Asking another rider to call for help if they are unable to do so themselves.

  • Using the SOS function on your GPS beacon

Each rider must assist any person in danger and notify the public emergency services without delay: 


  • Samu - 15

  • Police Secours - 17

  • Fire department - 18

  • General - 112


  • Police Secours - 101

  • Firefighters - 100

  • General - 112


  • Police Secours - 117

  • Fire department - 118

  • General - 112

Don't forget that hazards of all kinds, linked to the environment and events, can keep you waiting for help longer than expected. Your safety will then depend on the quality of what you've packed in your bag, and on your compliance with mandatory equipment.

All regulators and members of the organization are authorized :

  • to disqualify any competitor deemed unfit to continue the event

  • to evacuate by any means riders they deem to be in danger

  • direct participants to the most appropriate care structure

A rider who calls on the services of a doctor or paramedic submits to their authority and agrees to accept their decisions.

As soon as a rider's state of health warrants treatment with an intravenous infusion, he or she will be disqualified from the event.

Any runner who wilfully strays from the course is no longer under the responsibility of the organization.

During the event, the only means of communication between participants and the organization is to dial the telephone number of the Operational Management Centre, communicated beforehand and displayed on the race number/frame plate.


The association ULTRA CYCLING France, RIDE EAT SLEEP & SHARE or the co-organizing structure A.B.E has taken out civil liability insurance for the duration of the RACE ACROSS SERIES events.

The participant is fully aware that Gravel cycling is an extremely dangerous sporting activity and that he/she may be confronted with climatic conditions (rain, heat, cold, storms).

The participant is fully aware that safety in such an event depends solely on his or her ability to adapt to the problems encountered.

The participant is fully aware that the role of the organizer is not to help or assist him/her in managing his/her problems, even in the event of technical damage or physical or mental problems.

By registering, the participant accepts irrevocably and unreservedly all the extreme risks of the event, in particular the risk of accident, which may even result in the participant's death, and accepts sole responsibility for any damage he or she may suffer as a result of taking part in the event.

The participant thus accepts to take part in the event at his own risk, while measuring his own risks.

The participant is informed that the route(s) may cross protected areas such as Natura 2000 areas, forest areas managed by the ONF and/or PNR. In this sense, it must respect the environment by minimising its noise and light pollution and by managing its waste (see mandatory material list). The preservation of biodiversity is essential, and each participant is responsible for its impact on the ecosystems it crosses.

By accepting all the risks of this particularly dangerous event, the participant agrees, with full knowledge of the cause and possible consequences, to release the organizer from all liability in tort and/or contract.
In return, the participant undertakes to:

  • Be present at official ceremonies to which it is invited

  • Notify the Operational Management Station of its abandonment;

  • Make your own way to the arrival point to return only the equipment provided to the operational management post. 

  • In the event of non-return of the GPS, the participant will be invoiced directly by the GPS supplier, partner of the event, in the amount of 350 euros, all taxes included. By accepting the present rules when signing up, the provider will invoice the person concerned directly.

Team abandonment :
  • DUO: For a team to be recognized as a Finisher, it is imperative that both members cross the finish line together. However, we do allow one participant to drop out. In this case, the remaining participant may complete the event alone to the finish line to become a Finisher. The team will not be considered as such in this case.




Registration is by name only.

Participants may change their registration to another distance or format up to 30 days before the start of the event, subject to a transfer fee of 30 euros (incl. VAT) and the difference in price of the new event/distance.

If the participant changes from an event with a higher price to an event with a lower price, the difference will be reimbursed to the participant, taking into account the date of the change in relation to the registration price on that same date, from which the change fee will be deducted.

If an athlete transfers from a less expensive event to a more expensive event, the participant will have to pay the difference in addition to the transfer fee.

A transfer within a full distance (if the organization has decided to limit entries) is not possible or the participant accepts to be on the waiting list. A participant can only transfer his/her entry once.
