Anti-water measures

The organization of the Challenge Salou works to control that there is no drafting in the cycling segment and for this it puts various means:

  • Outputs separated by batches of 100 to 150 participants
  • Judges on a motorcycle
  • Judges at fixed points
  • Fixed and mobile camera system for de-qualifications after further analysis


Participation by relay can be in men's, women's or mixed teams of 2 or 3 components. Each team will have a hat, a chip and a bib. The witness surrenders giving the number and the chip to the partner. From the start of the competition until crossing the finish line, the chip must be carried by the member of the team that is competing; always at the ankle, so the relay is passed delivering the chip to the partner.
