Technical requirements for the RaceRunner bicycle – Check and approval Wednesday the 12th of july at 13:30 – 15:30
To participate in the competition your RaceRunner bicycle shall meet the technical requirements as defined in the CPISRA’s RaceRunner rules. Wednesday the 12th of July between 13:30 – 15:30 at the stadium, all RaceRunner bicycles will be measured for approval. When a bicycle is approved, it will be equipped with an authentication mark. The camp secretariat’s technical managers carry out the measurement.
Requirements: The frame has two rear wheels and one front wheel. The RaceRunner bicycle has a maximum length of 200 cm and a maximum width of 95 cm (measured between the outer sides of the two wheels). No part of the RaceRunner bicycle frame including saddle and handlebars must go further than the front wheel hub and be wider than the gap between the two rear wheels measured between the hubs.
No part of the RaceRunner bicycle may extend further back than the rear portion of the rear wheels. The diameter of each wheel including the inflated tire shall not exceed 72 cm.
Special rule for 2-lanes Athletes
The organizing committee has decided to make a special rule that hopefully will give beginners, that have a hard time staying in their own lane, a chance to advance to the next round/final.
On Monday, the 10th of July, the respective Team Managers shall point out those athletes that cannot stay in their own lane and therefore can be a risk to the other competitors. These athletes will be tagged "2-lanes athletes" (2LA) in the event terminology and be given two lanes each.
In the preliminary heats, the 2LA will get two lanes each at their disposition and have the possibility of advancing according to the IPC Athletics rules and regulations, with the following exceptions:
- If more than one 2LA qualify to the final, only the 2LA with the best time will advance.
- 2LA will in the final only get one lane at disposition, but will only get disqualified if they are a nuisance to the other competitors.
