The term “he” refers to both “he” and “she”. 

01 - General

  1. Climbing against MS is not a competition or non-competitive ride. The main goal of this event is to climb the Mont Ventoux by bike, while running/walking or with other materials required for the climb, and to raise as much money as possible to fight MS.
  2. Participants strive to climb the mountain in one go or in several times. A maximum of 4 climbs is registered for each participant.
  3. We expect the participants to make a substantial effort and raise at least € 500.
  4. You are able to participate in teams; the amount of €500 should then be multiplied by the number of participants in the team.

The costs for this examination will be borne by the prospective participant.
