HARDALPITOUR 2018 10th Edition ‚Äď HAT 2018

HARDALPITOUR is the proposal of a tour through the Alps in Piedmont and Liguria. It has been thought up as an opportunity to share with other people the common passion for riding a motorcycle with no competitive ambitions, but with attention to rediscovery of minor road networks and natural dirt roads.

Autonomy and responsibility  are two of the watchwords of this tour: in fact, every participant will receive all necessary information in order to be free in evaluating the tracks to follow to reach the points of technical assistance and refreshment. Each participant shall be responsible for his choice of the route to ride.

For the 10th edition we planned new initiatives to make the event even more exciting.

  • We confirm the start from the city of Sanremo. The ninth edition of the HAT in Sanremo was very successful and both bikers and their families enjoyed the place thanks to its points of interest and entertainment that this seaside town offers: from the beaches to the Casino, to the elegant shops of the historic center. We confirm the first part of the route in the Ligurian hinterland, through the villages of Bajardo, Apricale and Pigna: an suggestive itinerary that participants to the 10th HAT had the opportunity to appreciate.
  • The duration of the entire event will be three days, from Friday to Sunday, from 7th to 10th September 2018.
  • A NEW INITIATIVE will be the special event devoted to a tour by Electric pedal assisted bicycles ‚ÄúHAT ECOBIKE CHALLENGE‚ÄĚ, organized on Thursday September 6th. The route will wind up along the bicycle lane from Sanremo to San Lorenzo a Mare for those who will train for the HAT, involving their families in this event.
  • IMPORTANT: The FMI membership card that you buy together with the HAT will be already valid from the 10th calendar day after the date of your payment. It will expire 31th December 2018.
  • The route of the three versions of HARDALPITOUR, CLASSIC, EXTREME and DISCOVERY ¬†will be changed and new¬† stretches of road will be added.
  • The EXTREME version will start on Friday evening and will finish together with the Classic and Discovery versions in Sestriere on Sunday afternoon. It will be a real trip, lasting about 40-42 hours, over a distance of about 920 km to be covered independently. Each biker can rely on the skills and resources of the team, as well as make use of the refreshment points located on the route and of an additional and check/stopover indoor point where to relax.
  • The route of the EXTREME will be changed if compared with the previous edition, for about 150 km.
  • Special Awards will be established to participants by age (e.g. ‚Äúthe youngest biker‚ÄĚ and “the not-so young and expert biker‚ÄĚ) by the farthest country of biker‚Äôs origin and other requirements.
  • Participants who are younger than 21 years¬†at the moment of registration will have a discount on the entry fee as shown in the registration form. ¬†¬†
  • In Sanremo there will be a 4-day-long exhibition devoted to historical motorcycles and adventure. Free entrance for HAT participants.
  • We have confirmed the final refreshment point on arrival in Sestriere open to all participants.
  • The DISCOVERY version of this tenth edition of HARDALPITOUR will last two days and will be open to single biker as well as small groups of two bikers. The route of the first day will coincide with that of the Classic. On Saturday night bikers will stay overnight in Limone Piemonte area. Please not that this overnight accommodation is fully paid by the participant. The restart will be Sunday morning along the Classic route, arriving in Sestriere on Sunday afternoon, at the same time as the other HAT participants. It is an opportunity for those who want to take part to our event for the first time and want to experience the atmosphere of the trip without driving for 24 consecutive hours. Please note that also this event is reserved to single-cylinder and multi-cylinder motorcycles weighing more than 150 kg.

See insurance provisions on FMI official Web-site, www.federmoto.it.

At the check-in participants shall hand over to OVER2000RIDERS the printed copy of the HAT registration form. Every Participant will receive the OVER2000RIDERS and FMI membership cards and the bag of the event. Every Participant  shall be required to subscribe a waiver which relieves the event organizers of all responsibilities. At the refreshment points, each participant shall deliver the ticket to access to the point.

For those who will use the luggage transportation service, please note:  it is accepted only one item/each;  maximum sizes are 40cmx40cmx70cm. Luggage will be collected at the starting square in SANREMO and delivered on Sunday in  SESTRIERE.

Those participants, who will arrive in Sestriere after this long  effort,  shall be given a Testimonial of participation and arrival, presented by the President of the Regional Committee of FMI. This Testimonial will be presented only to those participants who made all the stops at the refreshment and check-in points. These stops are recorded both on detector and on your table which you have to keep and show at the arrival in Sestriere.

In order to improve safety of participants we organized a service of positioning GPS detection of the teams during the event. This system is useful also to acquire the necessary information in case of difficulties.  This system is provided and managed by a specialized company. It consists in a positioning chip that will be delivered to each team at start and shall be returned to the staff at the end in Sestriere.

During the check-in, each team shall be given the positioning chip for which a deposit of 100 ‚ā¨/team is required. This amount shall be refunded on arrival in Sestriere, against return of the chip. In case of withdrawal from the tour of one or more team members, this chip has to be returned in any case, otherwise the deposit will be withheld. The chip can be returned at the arrival in¬† Sestriere.¬† If it is impossible to return the chip directly, you are kindly requested to send it by first class mail/courier to the Supplier at your charge. When the chip is returned, the whole team will be considered definitively withdrawn.

The participation fee is just a reimbursement of the expenses made by the event organization; current expenses for membership to the association; preparation of refreshment stands; release of the FMI membership card; advertising material (tee-shirts, gadgets and so on).

In case of bad weather conditions, the organization is entitled to decide some changes of the tour programme, before the start as well as during the tour. At the incontestable discretion of our association, in case of changes due to new regulations and rules that govern access and transit on roads of the routes, the event programme may be subject to changes both before its start and in the course of it.

Anyway, any change of programme shall not be ground for claims of full or partial refund of the participation fee.

The event is considered started when the first team  of participants, both of EXTREME and of CLASSIC has left the starting point; any further changes in programme cannot be reasons to require a refund of the participation fee.

In case of cancellation of the event, the entry fee shall be reimbursed to participants, except for the amount of the FMI membership card + fixed costs, that is 100 EURs total (participation fee minus 100 EUR). The costs of the bank transfer shall be charged to the payee.

Should a Participant withdraw from this event, he must inform about it the Association by email,  no later than the end of June. In this case, the 30% of fee paid for this event may be reimbursed.   After 30/06/2018 in case of withdrawal from this event, no payment of the fee shall be refunded.

Participants formally undertake to not disclose to third parties the uploaded GPS tracks¬† of the suggested and assigned routes neither the¬† route that has been actually covered. The aim of this condition is to avoid that other people could ride on these same itineraries behaving and acting disrespectfully of our Association’s principles.

No mechanical  assistance, no recovery of motorcycles, no other services  than catering and  no assistance other than the medical one shall be provided to participants, if not included in the FMI insurance policies.

Participants shall be required to subscribe a waiver document which relieves the organizers of all responsibility. Please note that the organizers provide only logistic support through the assistance and refreshment stands.

When you are crossing populated areas and nearby the refreshment points, especially at nighttime, you are highly recommended to keep a respectful behaviour, to slow speed down, to avoid any disturbance and to turn the motorcycle off in case of stops.  Please use you common sense!
