Dear riders,

Welcome to the second newsletter for the 2019 Haute Route Pyrenees, we hope you have been able to get some good training in the books since our last contact.

This week we share with you a number of important reminders about rules, anti-doping and insurance. You will also find an update on the Mavic Haute Route apparel, an invite to ride with us on Zwift and some expert advice from our new partners Precision Hydration.

Ride safe and see you in August,

The Haute Route team
RULES & REGULATIONS
Upon registering for the Haute Route you accepted the Rules & Regulations that govern the events, if you have not yet read them in full we recommend you familiarise yourself with the Rules prior to arriving on registration day. The document for each event is available on our website in the downloads corner here.
ANTI-DOPING
On registering for the Haute Route all participants agree to respect the prohibition of doping and the provisions concerning anti-doping controls, according to the laws and regulations in force. Anti-doping controls can be carried out at any time without prior notice by licensed authorities.
ARE YOU INSURED?
We highly recommend that you take out personal accident insurance for Haute Route Pyrenees. 

All riders who purchased the cancellation insurance policy at the time of registration have personal accident coverage included in that same policy. If you did not register with the cancellation insurance we highly recommend that you take out a personal accident insurance policy that covers you for the duration of the event.
LIMITED EDITION GILET
Since the beginning of the original Haute Route Alps in 2011, our organisation has prioritised delivering the highest-quality events with a strong focus on personal service and an innovative approach to provide experiences not available on other events.

Mavic has been an amazing sponsor of Haute Route since the start, supporting riders on course and providing custom cycling kits. Mavic and Haute Route hoped to provide a complete cycling kit in 2019, but recent challenges and constraints at Mavic meant we both had to change those plans. We are thankful to announce Mavic will continue supporting Haute Route and our riders with neutral support, and this year with a limited edition cycling gilet (vest) for all riders.

We understand that the technical cycling gilet (vest) is not what you may have expected, and we apologise for not communicating this change earlier. The limited edition vest has been especially designed for Haute Route and is not in their current product line. We are confident it will become a go-to garment for cool mornings, mountain descents, and changing weather year round.
Please review the full specs here and make sure to log into your registration form here to confirm your size for the gilet. It is a race-cut fit, so we do recommend choosing one size up from your normal jersey size.

We look forward to receiving your feedback once you have your limited-edition gilet in your hands.

HOW TO STAY HYDRATED WHEN TRAINING FOR HAUTE ROUTE PYRENEES
Staying hydrated is crucial if you want to perform at your best, that’s why we’ve partnered with Precision Hydration to provide you with hydration advice and electrolyte drinks that’ll help you replace what you’re losing in your sweat. 

Your Rider’s Pack will include a free tube of PH 1500, an extra strong electrolyte drink that’ll help you start each stage well hydrated and aid your recovery afterwards. You’ll then be able to fill your bottle up with PH 500 at the feed stations on the course.

You can also use a £10 voucher to test their products before the event. Just take their free online Sweat Test to get a Personalised Hydration Plan and use the code HR-PYRENEES-5GG7 when checking out at precisionhydration.com before the end of June to redeem your voucher.

Read their advice on how to nail your hydration strategy in training here.
