For participants who are still abroad on Feb.22, you may either:

1- print, hand-sign and send a scan or photo of the signed waiver by mail to register@patrouilledescedres.com before Feb.22. Only then will your teammate be able to pay and receive your bibs at the Alfa Flagship store.

2- be present at the second briefing & bib pickup (Sat. March 2nd at 5pm - Montagnou, Oyoun es Simane). This applies to teams where both participants cannot be present on Feb.22.
