Rules of conduct
Rules of conduct for footbikers on the courses and around the races
We are guests in the municipality of Losser. We ask our participants to act as such. Participants or companions who misbehave, can be denied participation and can be removed from the competition location.
Participation is at your own risk.
The participants will be positioned before the start line by the jury based on the results of the previous race. The jury can deviate from this basic rule. The decision of the jury is not open for discussion. (The tracks are very narrow and have a lot of curves, so we want to start the races with the fastest participants in front.)
Overtaking. When someone is overtaking you, you should keep your own line. Don’t look back, just continue.
Give each other enough room during the first lap! The road can be slippery when the surface is wet!
When you finish with your race, you should immediately leave the track, because probably there are still people racing!
After the first participant has finished, everybody after him or her within the same category, will be shown the finishing flag, even when he or she did not complete the whole distance.
The jury can remove participants from the race.
Finishing at the criterium, relay and marathon races
After the winner of the race has finished, all remaining participants in that race will finish the race after completing their current lap, regardless of how many laps they have completed.
During the relay race, exchange is mandatory after each lap. A team will be disqualified when the number of team members, due to any circumstance, becomes less than 2.
Before publication of the results
Complaints that can influence the results, must be directed to the chairman of the jury (=the race organizer) within 30 minutes from the moment that the last participant finishes.
When the complaint can influence the results for the positions one, two or three within a certain category, the jury must communicate its decision orally before the ceremony. For complaints about other positions, the jury must communicate its decision within seven days in writing to the complainant and to the people involved.
After publication of the results
Complaints about the results must be reported orally to the race organizer at the latest half an hour after publication of the results. The jury must communicate its decision within seven days in writing to the complainant and to the people involved.
When the results are not published within one hour after the race, the participant can submit a complaint within two days after publication of the results. This complaint must be submitted in writing to the race organizer. The jury must communicate its decision within seven days in writing to the complainant and to the people involved.
Objections to the decision
When the complainant and/or people involved don’t agree with the jury decision, they can appeal against it. This reasoned appeal must be submitted in writing within seven days after the decision to IKSA. The resulting judgment of IKSA is final and is not subject to further appeal.
