La Transjurassienne race rules are based on the International Competition Rules (ICR).
However the organising committee reserves the right to modify the race courses as well as all points of the race regulations depending on the race conditions.
The race rules are originally written in French. This translation may lead to misinterpretation.
Consequently, in case of protest, only the french version can be considered as valid.
