By Mark Thomas
Please pay particular attention to the following dates extracted from the above, but keep in mind that the definitive word will be found on the ACP's PBP site.
|April 3||Begin preregistration period for riders completing a 1000km in 2010 (including a 1200km or longer RM event)||April 17||Begin preregistration period for riders completing a 600km in 2010||May 1||Begin preregistration period for riders completing a 400km in 2010||May 15||Begin preregistration period for riders completing a 300km in 2010||May 29||Begin preregistration period for riders completing a 200km in 2010||June 11||Registration opens for preregistered riders (and others if places are available)||June 19||Deadline for preregistered riders to register||June 20||Places reserved for preregistered riders who have not registered are released||July 17||Registration deadline||June 20||Places reserved for preregistered riders who have not registered are released and open registration begins||July 17||Final registration deadline|
Riders may have up to three steps in their registration process, which will require individual vigilance:
- Pre-register in April or May (with payment of 30 euros)
- Register by June 19 (with payment of balance) and listing at least 3 brevet homologations
- Perfect registration by July 17 by listing final homologation
Failure to do #2 voids #1; failure to do #3 voids #2
Please see two charts below for some data that you might find useful.
