  1. PARTICIPATION IN AND COMPLETION OF THE CHALLENGES

Throughout the preparatory period for the Event, challenges which may be sponsored by Event partners, will be at the disposal of Users in the “Challenges” tab of the Connected App.

By clicking on the Challenge, the User can access details about:

  • The training conditions to be met to complete the Challenge; and
  • a description of the prize that can be won by completing the Challenge.

To register for the Challenge, Users should click on the “Take Part” button available on the Challenge.

Users are instructed within the Connected App on how to connect their Connected Device, with a view to measuring their activity as part of their participation in a Challenge. This connection will enable the User’s training Data to be synchronised with the Connected App.

In order to be taken into account in the Challenge, Users’ runs must be:

  • at least a kilometre long, including for Challenges which can be repeated;
  • measured using the Connected Device sensors (a ride which is only reported by the User, but which is not measured by the Connected Device will not be taken into account).

Moreover, if the same ride is recorded by several Connected Devices, only the longest (in terms of length of time) will be taken into account.

Users who have met the conditions for completing a Challenge are then entered into a random draw to win the relevant prize(s).

Registration for a Challenge is free and reserved to adult Users.

By participating in a Challenge, Users agree that they have read the participation terms, the details of the Challenge and how to complete it.

Moreover, by registering for a Challenge, Users agree unreservedly to the Rules which are accessible below as well as on the Connected App.

The role of A.S.O. is confined to operating the Connected App, organising the Challenges, collecting and aggregating the Data required to take part in the Challenges, and enabling Data to be shared according to the sharing configuration defined by the User.
