PARTICIPATION:
Event participation is open to amateur cyclists with a medical certification of fitness for competitive CYCLING (not athletics or triathlon). Open to anyone with a license issued by the FCI or by any of the sports promotion associations that have signed an agreement with the FCI for 2019, and to anyone presenting a Bike Card together with the license from his or her own association, as specified in the convention described on the FCI site (https://www.federciclismo.it/it/article/2018/03/13/in-distribuzione-la-bike-card-2018/96424b3b-bbb2-408e-a493-e0584bcbb8c4/; this pertains to 2018).

Also open to any amateur foreign cyclist holding a UCI license issued by his or her respective national cycling federation for the 2019 season and upon presentation of the ethical certification in English and certification of fitness following model E. Foreign riders without a UCI license must submit, before the start of the event, a medical certification attesting to their fitness for participation in a competitive cycling event. This certification must not have been issued more than one year prior to the date of event registration.

The event is also open to all those without a license; these riders will be issued a one-day FCI license for a fee of €15, which provides liability insurance during the event. The one-day license will be issued only upon presentation of a valid medical certification of fitness for competitive cycling (not athletics or triathlon or other sports), regardless of the route selected.

In accordance with FCI regulations, the minimum age for participating in the Medio Fondo or Gran Fondo is 19 years. For those over 64, the Medio route of 133.8 km is obligatory.

According to the new federation regulations, every rider must be in possession of a medical certification of fitness for competitive cycling.

Participation in the event is by invitation, and the organizing committee may at any time and at its sole discretion decide whether to accept or reject a rider’s participation or to exclude a rider if the committee believes that the rider’s presence would damage the image of the event.

 

ETHICAL REQUIREMENT:
By signing and submitting the entry form, the rider, together with the representative of his or her team, certifies that there are no sporting sanctions, civil and/or criminal proceedings, or investigations pending against him or her for facts relating to doping, and declares that he or she has not taken – and will not take – substances included on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list of prohibited substances (https://www.wada-ama.org/en/resources/science-medicine/prohibited-list-documents). False self-certification will be prosecuted according to law.

Professional, elite (men and women) and Under-23 riders are permitted to ride only in a promotional capacity and at the invitation of the organizing committee and may not participate in any way in the classification.

In the case of a positive doping control carried out at the Sportful Dolomiti Race, or a positive result returned in the six months following the race, the rider will be required to pay to the organizing committee, as compensation for the severe damage caused to the image of the event, the sum of €50,000.00 (fifty thousand euros). If the rider belongs to a sports club, the club will be jointly and severally liable for payment of the penalty. The amount will be donated to support youth sports development.
