General info TransAlp Rando
You can participate in TransAlp Rando with two different sporting objectives, which you can decide according to your abilities. It will be your arrival time that will determine whether you are awarded the RM brevet or the BRI/ARI brevet, or, if you arrive after 110 hours, no brevet at all.
RM BREVET. If you want to pass a demanding test, you can set yourself the target of the 90 hours required to obtain the RM brevet – Les Randonneurs Mondiaux. This brevet is valid for the PBP qualification and is considered by the Audax Club Parisien as if it were a 600 km brevet.
BRI/ARI BREVET. If you want to give yourself a slightly more feasible goal, which still requires serious training, you can obtain the BRI/ARI brevet. In this case, we set a maximum time of 110 hours to complete the route.
IGT BREVET. Both the RM brevet and the BRI/ARI brevet entitle you to participate in the IGT – The Italy of the Grand Tour. The cyclist who completes the IGT by obtaining regular approval in each of the brevets envisaged, obtains the recognition of Gran Randonneur of Italy. The IGT can be completed without time limits in several years.
ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP. The randonnée is also part of the Italian Road Championship ARI.
GIRORANDO. The randonnée is included in the Girorando Circuit in the North East. The scoring will be that of the 600 km.
In order to obtain the brevets, it is necessary to have covered the entire route on the planned track, including the cycle paths. It is also mandatory to have stamped the route card at each control. Each cyclist is monitored via the electronic tracker.
It is only permitted to deviate from the planned route for short stretches and for valid reasons. It is also permitted to deviate from the route in the case of needing supplies or to reach one’s own overnight accommodation, as long as you then return to pick up the trail from where you left off. As with any randonnée, during the course of the event you must consider yourself to be on a personal excursion and you must carry out the route in total autonomy, following the rules of the Italian, Austrian and Slovenian highway code. The route is not signposted.
