A day prior to the race you should download the video file of the race from Rouvy (7.2 GB) and

you should also have tested your race setup.

In the sense of a virtual, Rotarian corporate identity, all Rotarian riders are pleased adhere to

the following agreement:

  • Please change your individual Rouvy username to your full first and last name together with

the abbreviation RCT at the end (e.g. MoritzDickRCT).

  • Your user picture should at best be the Rotarian logo.
  • You should also enter the “Rotary Cycling Team” as your virtual cycling club in the user settings.

In this race we are all members of the “Rotary Cycling Team”!

Only then it will be possible to be recognized as a Rotarian in the race by your user name/picture and so you can find each other and virtually ride together.

Later on we will only create our Rotarian result list if you are listed as a member of the “Rotary

Cycling Team”.
