FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you have any questions, please check here if they have already been answered to. We regularly update this section with new content as new questions arise.
You will be able to register directly on site. There is no pre-registration on the website for leisure activities. Group rides do not need registration.
Routes will be available at the lobby, with suggested times to make it easy to meet up. No need to register, just show up at the lobby at the time of interest, join the group and enjoy your ride !
The Electric Games and its organisers are not liable for any incident during group rides and no guidance is offered. Each rider must have, according to the French regulation, his valid personal vehicle insurance, obey to driving regulation laws and wear adequate protections – helmet is strongly advised.
We count on you to convey a positive and responsible image of the e-riders communities by respecting other users of the cycle lanes. No races, no excessive speed please.
Yes, we have setup a secured area, secure guarded 24/7 for all competitors with a paid ticket.
Non competitors can purchase an access to a separate but similar secure facility.
The number of available spots is limited so be sure to secure yours well in advance.
No, access is free for the public. You’ll have access to exhibitors, try and test new gear, obviously enjoy the show of the competitions !
Competitions are open for anyone over 12 (in 2021). If under 18, parental approval is required.
Access to the race tracks are allowed —at your own risk— outside of the competition schedule.
The Skatecross track is free to ride only during the Electro-Ride parties, otherwise it is only accessible to competitors and those with a paid access pass.
Unfortunately, no. Camping on site is not allowed but you should find a place that suits you pretty close to the event.
There will be an e-scooter rental service available for you during the event.
It depends on the competition. All of the Global Challenge has to be done on one single vehicle; swapping vehicles between challenges is not allowed. For the Electric Games Cup, it’s up to you : use one EUC for skatecross, and another for street if you wish. As long as it remains in the same family (you can’t use say an e-scooter for one race, and an e-skate for another). Unless you register in multiple categories !
We’re afraid not. For security reasons, we can only accept regular non modified vehicles. External batteries in particular are forbidden because of the risk of fire in case of damage.
Each rider is required to have a valid personal insurance. The Electric Games has its own insurance, but it can not substitute to your personal insurance : it complements it.
Outside of competitions, as defined by the official schedule, a valid personal insurance is obviously also required. The Electric Games and its organisers can not be held responsible in case of lack of personal insurance from any rider.
Well… bummer ! You assume the responsibility of not crashing yours or another vehicle. Should it happen, be it during competitions or not, the Electric Games offers no guarantee whatsoever and can not be held liable for the crash and/or its consequences.
The skatecross race can’t be held on tarmac or other smooth surface, thus not really adapted for pure Street ESK8 boards. We have to do this because of organisation constraints.
To avoid misleading Street ESK8ers, we have removed the registration. for this category. You can freely register in the ESK8 All Terrain category if you want, but keep in mind that you will only get most of the races if you can switch your board’s wheels for inflatable ones for the Skatecross.
Tickets from the 2020 (canceled) edition
You can get full refund of the purchase price —no question asked— for your ticket(s) bought for the 2020 canceled edition until February 28. Just drop us an email and we’ll take care of that for you.
After this date, your participation is settled. The COVID refund guarantee still applies, at purchase price.
Sure, if you wish to ! Please contact us so we know your preference. As owner of a ticket of the previous edition, you will have an advantage over other riders since the date of purchase enters into account in the final selection of the actual cup contestants. Please keep in mind that this is however not a guaranteed place, as other criteria are also taken into account.
Unfortunately we can not go into such great detail, all tickets bought under the same account have to be treated as a whole. It’s either a total refund, or a total enrolment. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Any kind of electrified wheelchair can technically participate. However, since the Global Challenge is a time-based trial, restricted wheelchairs (usually 6km/h) will be strongly disadvantaged. We think a better option (maybe even for your everyday life) is something like what Wheelonride offers : mobility using scooters or electric unicycles.
We have condensed all the competitions for disabled riders on Sunday the 1st of August. This way, you don’t necessarily have to stay overnight. This should make things easier for you. But we would be pleased to have you with us for more than just one day !
Indeed ! We require you to wear at least a helmet and elbow pads. But don’t hesitate to up your game with more protections if you wish or intend to ride really hard !
We do our best to ensure that disabled riders can ride the same tracks as non disabled riders. The cross country track takes place on natural ground, made of packed sand and pine thorns (known as “grepin“). It really is pretty solid ground. However we will test-drive the track and if it appears to be inadequate, we will replace it with an adequate track you will be able to ride. So no worries !
Unfortunately, e-Cups are not yet suited for disabled riders at the moment. This may change in future editions depending on how things go.
