    Does anyone know what time the Megavalanche entries open?
    It’s supposed to be today, but the website is still showing as entries closed…

    Anyone else doing the Mega this year?

    Is anyone else struggling to understand the English translations of the sign up form? Not quite sure which sign up option I need or what all of the form means …

    is this the correct registration form:- http://velo.engage-sports.com/engagement/course/1285/engagement/

    not entirely sure what “ATV package accompanying special price” refers to, or “Make your coverage” and the final “Signature” question.

    Also There are 2 of us I’m trying to sign up for. Can I pay for 2 registrations?

    Thanks Vern0n

    Hi fellas, I’m looking for some advice as well if anyone can help? I get that I need to select the relevant ATV package but do you need the premium package for the lifts etc. or just if you want to use some sports facilities? Also, anyone know what make your coverage and make your car refer to?
    Cheers for any help

    As far as I can work out:
    ATV package = lift pass
    Premium package – not needed unless you want to use the other facilities (pool, rink, sports centre). I’m fairly sure you can pay separately for pool access, so this looks a little steep.
    coverage = protection, if you want to tell them the make of your helmet, etc (think this is just for marketing)
    car make = just for marketing
    Signature = confirming that you will have insurance for the race

    I just did two registrations simultaneously, but looks like after you’ve completed and paid for the first there is an option to go back and register for “another listing”. Not sure how this will work/where you put in the second name.

    Now… anyone any clue what the Electro Avalanche is?

    Mountain bike package accompanying special price
    1 package by accompanying inscription. Possibility of having more packages only companion (s) child (ren) of the family of the rider. Apply to any plan change inscriptions@megavalanche.com. Pour € 5 fee.

    I think this is additional Premium packages (local facilities etc) for family of riders.

    Most changes can be made at a later stage to pretty much all of your application so if you aren’t certain of dates, packages etc might be best to sign up for the standard ones then upgrade later (for a fee :D)

    I believe lift pass is included. Might double check tho…

    ATV = VTT = MTB

    Despite having to do it in French, it was still less painful than entering a rat race event. At least I didn’t have to put my email adress in 5 times!!!
    Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a ubiquitous event entry form?

    I felt like I was going back 10 years in time using that website. I’ve registered for something, I just hope it’s the Mega

    Signed up. The site is interesting, someone has redone it with the Twitter Bootstrap but done a really odd job of it. Oh well.

    Hi,
    My friend has just pulled out due to needing an op on his knee. I have space for one person in my van. The ferry is booked. I live near Oxford. Anybody out there looking for a lift?
    Cheers
