Prior to the race, foreign riders without a UCI license must submit a medical certification attesting to their fitness for participation in a competitive cycling event. This certification must not have been issued more than one year before the date of registration for the event.
The event is also open to those without a license; these riders will be issued a one-day FCI license for a fee of €15, which provides liability insurance during the event. The one-day license will be issued only upon presentation of a valid medical certification of fitness for participation in competitive sports, regardless of the route chosen.
Riders between 17 and 18 years of age and those over 64 must ride the Medio Fondo route (101 km).
In accordance with new federation rules, every participant must have a medical certification of fitness for participation in competitive sports. Participation in the event is by invitation, and the organizing committee may at any time and at its sole discretion decide whether to accept or reject a rider’s participation or to exclude a rider if the committee believes that the rider’s presence would damage the image of the event.
By signing and submitting the entry form, the rider, together with the representative of his or her team, certifies that there are no sporting sanctions, civil and/or criminal proceedings, or investigations pending against him or her for issues relating to doping, and declares that he or she has not taken – and will not take – substances included on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
False self-certification will be prosecuted according to law. Professional, elite (men and women) and Under-23 riders are permitted to ride only in a promotional capacity and at the invitation of the organizing committee and may not participate in any way in the classification. In the event of a positive doping control carried out at the GF PINARELLO, or a positive result returned in the six months following the race, the rider will be required to pay to the organizing committee, as compensation for the severe damage caused to the image of the event, the sum of €50,000 (fifty thousand euros). If the rider belongs to a team, the team will be jointly and severally liable for payment of the penalty. The amount will be donated to support youth sports development.

During the course of the event, riders may freely choose the route best suited to their abilities as long as they respect the checkpoints along the routes, at risk of disqualification from the final classification. The GF PINARELLO is a competitive/cyclosportive event, and therefore it is absolutely obligatory that riders respect the rules of the road. Riders passed by the “fine gara ciclistica” (“end of bike race”) vehicle continue in the event as touring cyclists, retaining their race numbers but following the rules of the road. Riders must mount the race number with the transponder on the handlebars so it is visible and not rolled around the frame; the other number provided by the race organizers is to be pinned to the back of the jersey. These numbers may not be modified in any way. A standards-compliant hard-shell helmet must be worn, buckled, for the duration of the event. During the event, the roads are monitored by trained volunteer corner marshals, but the roads are nevertheless open to traffic and the rules of the road must absolutely be observed.
The GF PINARELLO is part of the Maglia Nera, Prestigo di Cicloturismo and Alè Challenge circuits; for the respective rules, please visit the official websites.

2018 RULES FOR SDAM CHIPS
The timing service will be provided by Sdam Srl, official distributor of the MyLaps brand. Every rider must be equipped with his or her own Sdam chip to be classified.
The only chips that can be used are personal MySdam chips ACTIVATED for the current season or daily chips valid for the event only.
No other chips will work.
Personal MySdam chips can be ACTIVATED at the “Punto Chip” at the race for a €10 fee, or online at www.mysdam.net by the Thursday before the weekend of the event at a cost of €5.
Any rider who does not yet have a personal MySdam chip can purchase one directly from the Punto Chip in the race packet pickup area for €15. It will be immediately activated for the 2018 season.
Alternatively, a daily chip, valid ONLY for the event, can be rented upon payment of a €10 deposit, with €5 refunded upon chip return.
The return area will be located near the finish and will be available from 30 minutes after the arrival of the first competitor of the shortest route up to 30 minutes after the arrival of the last competitor in the event.
PLEASE NOTE: Timing service is NOT guaranteed for those who do not position the chip correctly.
Failure to activate the chip will result in exclusion from the race classification.
Every participant must come to the RACE NUMBER PICKUP area for the license check and race number pickup at the GF PINARELLO booth in the historic center of Treviso in Borgo Mazzini, near the START of the GF PINARELLO. The booth is open at the following times:

The race number must be worn on the back of the jersey to enable rider identification. The number on the front of the bike must be attached to the handlebars in such a way as to be visible, at risk of exclusion from the classification. The front and back numbers will be in the same color.
If a rider is unable to participate in the event, the registration fee can be rolled over to the 2019 edition if notice of withdrawal is received via either fax or email by July 12, 2018.
The event will take place regardless of the weather conditions, except in the event of a natural disaster, in which case the organization will roll over €5 of the entry fee to the 2018 edition.
Checkpoints will be located at the start, at the finish, and at various points along both courses. The race jury and authorized staff will manage the checkpoints. Anyone who starts early or misses the check at the start will be excluded from the classification.
The individual and team classifications will be published on the granfondopinarello.com website in the days following the event.
ASSISTANCE DURING THE RACE:
During the event, a suitable number of mechanical and medical assistance vehicles, both fixed and mobile, will be present along the routes. Assistance from private follow vehicles is not allowed, at risk of disqualification of the riders assisted. An emergency number (+39 338 5649798) will be set up, for use only in the event of major emergencies during the race; the 118 ambulance service and helicopter rescue will be called if needed.
FEED ZONES AND ECOZONES:
Along the routes, feed zones (complete and/or hydration only) will be provided for riders wearing race numbers.
The ECOZONES are an initiative to support sustainability and respect for the environment. The ecozones are areas for refuse collection near the feed zones, within which riders must throw their water bottles, energy bar wrappers, and other trash. The ecozones will be marked along the route with identical, easily recognizable signs. The organizers, in collaboration with the FCI race commissars and race staff, will monitor the event to ensure that riders do not throw trash along the route outside the ecozones. Any participant who demonstrates disrespectful behavior will be excluded from the event for a year.
Police and race organization vehicles will precede and escort the participants on both race routes. Only vehicles of the organization with the appropriate marking (such as lead vehicles, jury, race director and broom wagon) are authorized to be on the course.
Race organization and civil protection personnel will control intersections and danger points in agreement and collaboration with law enforcement.
To avoid potential bike theft, participants should be extremely careful during the entire event and not leave their bikes unattended, including during the pasta party after the finish.
The organizers will provide a “broom wagon” service for participants who find themselves in difficulty. Riders must wait for the race organization vehicles that will take them to the finish area. The emergency number (available soon) can also be used for information about the location of the broom wagon.
RULES OF THE ROAD:
The roads are open to traffic during the event, and thus it is absolutely obligatory to follow the rules of the road. Charges will be pressed against any unregistered riders who join the event and cause damage or accidents.
Anyone seen throwing trash on the road will be reported to the race jury and excluded from the final classification. All participants are asked to maintain respectful behavior in the start area and throughout the event.
Remember that the GF PINARELLO is an amateur race and therefore any issue not addressed by these rules is governed by the rules of the national amateur cycling commission, the FCI, and the UCI. The race organization accepts no responsibility for any incident occurring before, during, or after the event involving participants among themselves or with any third party.
Any claims must be presented to the jury within the required time limit and accompanied by the fee specified in the FCI rules.
