During the stages, it is not possible to assist the participants and the organization will not directly have anybody in this regard.
The organization guarantees the existence of bicycle cleaning points at the end of each stage, either with hoses or pressurized machines, as well as a small self-workshop space.
Your friends and family will be able to attend the different events: departure and arrival, briefing, pasta party … For this purpose, we have created the Accompanying Pack.
It is a pack designed so that they can come to cheer you up and share the Deporvillage Transpyr Coast to Coast adventure, enjoying it to the fullest. This pack includes accreditation as a companion, a tourist dossier to discover the wonders of the Pyrenees, tickets for Pasta Party, parking in a reserved area (at some stage towns) and other accessories.
If your companions only come one day, you will have the option to buy the daily party pasta ticket.
The Accompanying Pack can be purchased through your private area or at the organization’s office (RACE OFFICE).
