Difficult, technically demanding daily stages on hilly landscapes are characteristics of the route and are manageable with standard hard enduro motorcycles with an autonomy of 80 km.

It is stated explicitly, that the selective characteristics of the route and the attainable maximum time for each section and each day are conditioned by the weather, perseverance and driving ability and can lead to a considerable failure ratio.

For safety reasons, the possession of a functioning Garmin GPS (see section 5.6 and 5.7 for more information) is necessary for each competitor.

          • 1 GSM mobile phone in waterproof packaging (able to phone out and receive calls)  Please ensure phone is fully charged.

A helicopter, off-road vehicles, off-road motorcycles with emergency medical aid-teams, as well as ambulances offers their services to each competitor during the whole event. At previous editions the rescue teams arrived in about 25 minutes at the accident site, but due to different terrain and weather conditions, a maximum intervention time of 2h'30 can be guaranteed.

          • In the event of a medical evacuation the helicopter rescue cost will have to be covered by competitors. The cost of helicopter flying time is 1300 euro per hour.

          We ask competitors to obtain insurance cover for Medivac flight transportation back to their own country. This insurance cover can often be provided by the Motorcycle governing body (federation) of the country competitors come from.

          • Controls will be made at the 'Motorcycle security park' and at 'off-road start(s)' to ensure that competitors are carrying ALL rescue equipment requested.
             A 30 minute time penalty will be added to the results for failure to carry this essential equipment.
          • At the Rescue desk at Inscription, competitors will be asked to provide proof that they have a working phone in Romania which uses the phone number they entered into their registration ''competitor account'.
             A check will be made to ensure competitors have the Medical rescue phone numbers and the Bike breakdown phone numbers installed on the phone they will carry with during the event.

          7. Start and race-course, generally

          • All competitors will get information on the exact starting procedure in the competitor & service crew briefing(s) on Monday July 22.
          • The starting-grid, the starting list and interval formation will be announced after the competitors briefing on the evening before each race day and on the website.
          • Because of the exposed routing, each competitor must treat contacts with other competitors (overtaking), carefully and respectfully.
            Overtaking within checkpoints flags is not allowed.
          • Checkpoints(CP) are timing points (competitors passage time is recorded) and are clearly indicated on the track.
          • The GPS recorded track of the competitor may be taken in consideration in the resolution of a protest or for judging cases of penalty or disqualification.

          • Technical defect stopped competitor - 
            Bike breakdown 0040 731 270 881 (motorcycle breakdown assistance).

          • Assisting a medically injured competitor
            Any conspicuous events during the race, regarding competitors, such as evidently injured competitor, MUST be announced to the Red Bull Romaniacs medical rescue team using the phone number(s):-
            Medical rescue 1 0040 731 270 884
            Medical rescue 2 0040 751 869 322
          • In the case of an medically injured competitor, the first competitor who finds an injured competitor 'MUST' HELP

            An injured competitor should never be left alone!
          •  If it is not possible to contact the Rescue team due to no phone signal, then the provided A4 ''First Aid medical assistance form' with all details filled in should be handed to another competitor.  Ask them to phone the Romaniacs medical Rescue team as soon as phone coverage becomes available and provide the details on the ''First Aid medical assistance form''.  In general there is GSM signal on most of the peaks and ridges but in some valleys there is no phone coverage.

            Assisting Competitor(s) can use this ONLINE form or hand-in the completed ''First Aid medical assistance form" at the Race Directors event Headquarter ''Medical assistance time back claims'' are "Finalising results TIME limited", so do not delay informing the Race Director.  

            Competitors who assist a medically injured competitor can be given a ''calculated riding'' time so that their results are not affected by the time taken providing assistance until the medical rescue team arrives.
            The decision on what time to provide back to a competitor(s) who assisted a medically injured competitor is calculated by Race Director/Race Jury.

                                   Remember:- it will always be worth helping!

          8. Valuation

          • The organisers publish the “maximum riding time limit” for the next Offroad day at the competitors briefing, it includes the mandatory stop time at the Service point and includes time needed if there is ''timed liaison' on the track.
          • The riding time of a competitor is calculated by adding the actual riding time on the track plus given time penalties. (see section 9.00 Rules and penalties)
          • The sum of the total amount of time of each stage (start to finish) is valuated.

          • The winner is the competitor who achieves the lowest riding time.

          • The event organiser or Race Director have the right to disqualify competitors in case of unfair behaviour or in the case of course fouls.
          • If a competitors riding time means they will not reach the finish(maximum riding time) they will be asked to leave the race track at a checkpoint and directed back to the finish. (the competitor has been time barred)
          • If a competitor ‘’leaves the race track’’ at a checkpoint before the finish they must follow instructions provided at the checkpoint. The competitor MUST present their motorcycle and dis-mount and hand-in their GPS and rescue map either at the ''Offroad finish checkpoint & GPS FLAG" or at the ''MAIN competitor paddock checkpoint & GPS FLAG" as soon as possible.
          •  If the event organiser or Race Director decides that a section of the course has become impassable due to weather conditions, queuing or other factors outside his control, or if the estimated "maximum days riding time" is no longer achievable then the organisation has the right to remove time taken between checkpoints or finish the race earlier and adjust the results accordingly.
          • Our guarantee is that at least 40% of competitors each day will be finishers in the results.

          9. Rules and Penalties

          9.1 At Motorcycle Inspection

          • All Survival equipment must be available for examination.

          A competitors failure to produce working navigation/phone/safety equipment at the motorcycle inspection or at any time when requested by event officials during the event will result in time penalties or disqualification from the competition.
