The regulations of the Austrian Bicycle Association (ÖVR) apply to the Salzkammergut Trophy.
During the race any technical support and catering is prohibited, except the assistance by other participating bikers. At the service and refreshment stops assistance is only permitted if done by official assistants. At the Assistance Points (AP), shown on the course map, the participants may accept food/beverages, spare parts, clothing and tools as well as technical assistance from their team’s crew.
Any crew member on the course with a motorized vehicle will cause his rider to be disqualified and be reported to the authorities!
The beginning and the end of the "Feed-Zone" is marked by special signposts. No littering beyond this area!!! Those who litter along the race course or throw any waste into the ditches, woods or on meadows will be disqualified! (Attention! Those regulations are going to be supervised by marshals “disguised” as bikers. There will be no warnings.)
Pieces of clothing may be left at any service station and are to be picked up later at the starting number distribution.
Bikers who quit the race must turn in their timing chip to one of the marshals and must not, under any circumstances, bike through the finishing line!
HOLMENKOL – The specialist for high tech textile protection will equip four service stations along the course. Experienced mechanics will assist in adjusting brakes or gear shifts and the "HOLMENKOL-Natural-Bike-Lube” makes sure that everything runs smoothly. Any other repairs can only be done upon availability; however spare parts have to be paid right away by the participant

Watch out for Bike Thieves!
Unlike many other mega bike events, there were hardly any bikes stolen at the Salzkammergut-Trophy! This is mainly due to intensive monitoring and awareness training by the police as well as the alertness of our participants.
Please make sure that you note the brand, model and the frame number of your bike respectively issue a bike pass at the Federal Criminal Police Office before arriving in Gosau! After the race, the bike may be deposited at the Park Fermé. The depot is open on Saturday from 01:00 pm until 10.30pm.
