Yes, the support vehicle is obligatory; the exception is the 404 km daytime ride. Go to the General Rules page for full details on support vehicles: http://defi808bonneville.com/rules

The support vehicle and crew are needed for the safety of all participants, especially at night, because the roads are not closed to traffic and there isn’t always a shoulder lane. Any assistance provided by a support crew must take place outside the vehicle; the support team cannot help push or pull a bike nor do any “drafting” with a rider.

Yes, one support vehicle can be assigned to two teams. The members of those teams must ride in pairs during the night portion of the event (6 p.m. to 6 a.m.)

Yes, you may leave a bag at one of the timing stations, which are located in Tremblant, Arundel and St-Donat.

Yes. The timing stations are transition zones for teams as well as places to stop and rest.

All funds will benefit the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec, which supports and guides young student-athletes in their academic and athletic development from the moment their talent emerges to their transition into a career in sports. Learn more about the foundation.
