This check can be done BEFORE the bib distribution to our Partners Check Point stores (list below), and a maximum of 15 days before the race. A rider who is unable to present his bike to one of the partner’s store either because he is a foreigner or because there is none in his area can still check in Sion on the Friday before the race.

All participants must provide the validation signed by the affiliatedstore,to collect his bib the day before the race, Friday, 19.08.2022 in Sion,Place de la Planta, from 11 am to 7 p.m.

All participants must come in Sion to remove their bib, including those registered at Verbier. There is no more bibs distribution in Verbier.

The technical assistance present on the race during the race is maintained and remains unchanged.

 

Shops partners check-point

 

These stores check the safety of your bike for free. The certificate is only given if the bike doesn’t represent any risk for your safety (brakes, general condition). Any other malfunction of the bike doesn’t concern the technical control (speeds, tires, pedals, etc.). All other services will be charged.

We strongly recommend you take a look at this list in order to maximize your chances by riding on a bike.
