WARNING: THE CERTIFICATE – In sports events of all kinds there is an obligation to document the possession of the suitability certification of the participants, therefore it is not sufficient for the participant to show a cycling card issued by FCI / Ciclistici Italian and foreign (except for possible changes that may occur in the 2020 regulations).
Each participant must be in possession of sports medical fitness for the practice of competitive cycling; foreign residence attendees must be in possession of a certificate of fitness drawn up in accordance with the E – Health Certificate.
GiroSardegna, with the aim of simplifying the implementation of this obligation, has interfaced its enrollment with an external company that collects, validates and retains athletes’ medical certificates.
The www.datahealt.it website contains the Service Usage Modes, the PDF files with facsimile certificates (in Italian and English), the User’s Guide and FAQs for each need.
WARNING: The medical certificate must be taken over by 14 April 2020 – Members who do not proceed through the DataHealth service are required to submit a copy of their medical certificate to the withdrawal of the race number.
THE INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP MEDIOFONDO – The GiroSardegna boasts in Italy a large percentage of foreign participants (in 2019 were around 40% the members coming from 24 nations), has therefore title to claim a recognition that it is the consecration of this fact, and the CSAIN Sports Promotion Agency wanted to recognize it by declaring the “MF Sardegna–Alghero” the International Championship of Mediofondo!
On April 26, 2020, the first classified in each category and in the two routes will be awarded the International Champion Title (of Mediofondo) and will get the jersey regardless of the cycling card he/she has.
ATTENTION: a FREE INSURANCE – Thanks to an agreement made between Formula Bike (to which the GiroSardegna is associated) and Bikevo, the first stage of the Giro 2020 benefits from the possibility of a free insurance coverage for all participants of italian nationality. Instant Bike is an insurance product designed for cyclists: it is activated only on the day when it is needed (a race, a sports exit, a cycle-pedestrian, etc.) and addresses itself in the coverage of accidents or other very frequent individual situations. The insurance is activated through a code that will be communicated in advance through our newsletter with which you register on bikevo.com, you download an appropriate App through and you get the actual coverage in a few minutes. Coverage is free in the “Granfondo di Alghero” but, if you pay a paltry sum, it can also be continued for one or more successive stages. More in-depth information can be found at www.bikevo.com
WAZE and GiroSardegna – The free WAZE App (the most widespread satellite navigation system in the world) in partnership with Formula Bici, offers a service of undoubted value: all the associated cycling events can improve the viability in the areas closed to traffic or passage of the competitions. It will therefore be possible to indicate to the participants and enthusiasts how to get as close as possible to the departures/arrivals of the races as well as to indicate to the road users how to avoid closed paths to traffic during their closing times. The cyclists in the race can even set the route of the single stage taking advantage of the benefits of the App (direction notice at intersections, alert for accidents or obstacles reported by other competitors, etc.).
