– even if the organization guarantee a high level of security, it is impossible to avoid “sport risks”.

– that entering in this competition has risks and it is possible to suffer both minor and sever injuries in this sport.

– to take responsibility of the “sport’s risk”, it means that every competitor has to take ownership for his/her MTB riding during the competition and whilst exploring the surrounding area.

– that should you cause injury to another competitor or see a competitor injured on the trail it is your responsibility to stop and assist them until competition first aid arrives. – that there are many competitors and spectators at this event and it’s possible that it will be times where the paths are crowded with competitors who are struggling on trails.
