Terms and Conditions


WITOOR SPORT A.S.D. is the organizer of Rando Imperator randonnée, a cycling non-competitive event (from now on also “ride”), which will be held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2024, between Munich (Germany) and Ferrara (Italy).

The event is inspired by the ancient Roman commercial route, a link between the rivers Danube and Po, nowadays called Via Claudia Augusta. The route is almost exclusively on bicycle trails, and it includes some gravel.

Rando Imperator offers three kinds of brevets:

  • Munich – Ferrara of 650 km and 3400 mt+;
  • Munich – Bozen of 340 km and 2600 mt+;
  • Bozen – Ferrara of 310 km and 800 mt+;

Every participant can choose the path that suits them best. The choice must be made when registering. Anyway, riders can always change their choice before the day online registrations are closed, without penalties. The organization has the right of not giving consent to a change in brevet/path, given peculiar technical or safety reason.

There will be marks all allong the path, but every rider must follow the indications given by the Road Book or the GPS track that all participants will receive a week before the event via email, together with all useful information about the event.


The Randonnée Brevet “RANDO IMPERATOR” is a sport non-competitive event, about strength and regularity, which must be finished in absolute autonomy. Riders must consider themselves on an “individual excursion”, therefore in complete self-sufficiency, with no technical support e no kind of assistance by the organizators, not even health support. The route is not supervised. Controls – either declared and secret – are exclusively for checking riders’ “carta di viaggio” (for the brevets), and have the only purpose of checking that all participants are following the right track, in order for the brevet to be valid.

In case of withdrawal, the rider must immediately communicate it to the Organization, and he/she has to schedule how to go back home on his/her own. The Randonnée RANDO IMPERATOR Brevet has no ranking, but only a list of all finishers and participants compliant to the brevet regulation.


Rando Imperator is open to all participants of both sexes who are at least 18 years old, provided they have a Medical Certification of fitness for competitive cycling, or a certificate attesting the ability to sustain any high-cardio vascular activity, signed by a sports doctor; participants can be also members of any Sport Association (in partnership with F.C.I. or foreign associations recognized by UCI). All certificates must be still valid on both days of Rando Imperator.

Riders who are not members of sport associations are covered by an insurance made by the Organization.

Athletes from outside Italy must provide their medical certificate in English language.

Rando Imperator is open to all riders with means on two or three wheels with no engine, compliant with the regulations of “Codice della Strada” and its “Regolamento di attuazione” (traffic rules).

All means must have a working and appropriate braking system, which acts on both axes with rigid lever, cable or hydraulic transmission.

E-bikes are allowed, provided that they bear the CE conformity mark, that is the CE symbol. The marking must be visible, legible and indelible. (As the Randonnée can be partly during night hours, and partly along tunnels, riders must also have a propoer lighting system; in the case of e-bikes, this system must be independent of the power supply battery of the bicycle).

Registration implies knowledge and unconditional acceptance of the Implementing Regulation of Federazione Ciclistica Italiana (Italian Cycling Federation) concerning Randonnées, of A.R.I. Regulation for the type of brevet, as well as of this Regulation (in all its parts), as well as the obligation to read and know the content of the “Declaration of awareness, risk assumption and disclaimer of liability”, and to sign it.


Each participant is required to:

– deliver (also in electronic form) a copy of the Sports Medical certificate of suitability for competitive cycling, unless one’s sports medical suitability has not already been ascertained by filing and validating on the Data Health platform;

– be in good psycho-physical condition and in any case suitable to bear the discomfort and fatigue of the Randonnée.

– previously having read the Description of the Randonnée, the Road-book and the present Regulations on the relative Web page and in any case previously having read and therefore at the time of registration signing for full and unconditional adhesion and acceptance, the “Declaration of awareness, assumption of risk and liability release” by providing your mobile phone number.

– preventively check the efficiency and state of wear of the braking system and of the vehicle in general.

– leave the CE conformity marking, consisting of the CE symbol, clearly visible and unobtrusive.

– know the route by having read the description on the web page and the relative Road Book as well as the GPS track.

– respect the Road Code and always maintain the conditions of the vehicle adequate to what is prescribed by the same Code, in particular as regards the lighting system.

– respect the track and pass through the checkpoints indicated, with the knowledge that “secret” checkpoints may be set up along the way; failure to pass through one of the checkpoints, in addition to causing a state of alert, entails exclusion from the Brevet.

– wear a duly approved rigid protective helmet, during and throughout the event;

– maintain a demeanor and dress respectful of the spirit of the event and of the other participants;

– autonomously and personally provide all that is necessary for yourself to complete the event;

– do not exceed the maximum average speed established in relation to age limits;

– immediately notify the Organization of your withdrawal or – at the end of the deadline for arriving at a checkpoint (“gate closing” time) – your delay, with the awareness that in the absence of news, the Public Forces will be alerted with costs and responsibilities to be borne entirely by the participant who fails to comply with this obligation.

Any verification of non-compliance with the mentioned obligations will result in exclusion from the start or, if later, disqualification.


Each participant is required to have with them:

– reflective jacket or braces;

– at least 1 water bottle;

– clothing suitable for the foreseen weather conditions and the peculiarity of the Randonnèe;

– mobile phone with sufficient charge reserve for its functionality throughout the event or, failing that, a backup battery;

– survival sheet or – better – thermal sheet, bearing in mind that the use of aluminum sheets is strongly discouraged in the event of thunderstorms due to the risk of electrocution.

– lighting system consisting of lights integral with the vehicle, if the conditions of time and place make it necessary in accordance with the Highway Code.

The obligatory equipment may be checked “at random” during the preliminary operations for departure or at the controls.

Any assessment of the lack of mandatory equipment will result in exclusion from the start or, if later, disqualification which will also follow in the event of refusal to undergo a check.

Again for a matter of safety, all participants will be obliged to use the Live Tracking App which will be communicated by the Organization in the email containing all the useful information that will arrive to the participants on Tuesday 2 May.


Each participant is prohibited from:

– be assisted, without danger or necessity, by family members, teams, friends along the route outside the places where the checkpoints are located;

– throw rubbish along the route outside the bins, baskets or in general from dedicated bins;

– abandon the tracked route in order to shorten or facilitate it;

– engage in dangerous or unsportsmanlike or improper behavior.

Any verification of violations will result in disqualification.
