Optional GPS Tracking
Why use the GPS Tracking service?
For this 5th edition and always in an evolution matters, we offer an optional tracking service. The aim of this service is to increase the rider’s safety, but also to facilitate his follow-up by the assistance.
By subscribing to GPS tracking, you are followed live by the PC. We see your position in real time, but you also have the possibility to send an alert in case of problems (injury, report the incident of another problem, failure etc.). In addition, if you stay still for too long, the PC will contact you and send a team to check that there is nothing wrong.
This GPS option allows you to call the PC at the touch of a button, and even send them photos of your situation (with the mobile app).
More effective assistance
Logistically, your assistance has direct access to your position and can thus predict your arrival at the supply, see your evolution in the course.
Note for the Assistance: You do not have the authorization to follow the rider by vehicle or by foot under penalty of disqualification. Similarly, you do not have to contact the PC for a problem that is outside the refueling zone located at Mercoirol.
