HI,

On the entry form for the etape, there is a whole section that I cannot answer. Can anyone please advise?

The section is:

Licence 2011 FFC ou UFOLEP ?
Best ranking obtained on the EDT ?
Year of this best performance ?
Second best ranking obtained ?
Year of this second performance ?
Best ranking on an other race ?
Name of this other event ? Year ?

I'm guessing results from UK sportives would count? but what is EDT? And what is the Licence bit? Is that the medial certificate and can I get my doctor to certify me?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Etape official rules wrote:

The race is open to licensed and non licensed cyclists and amateur racing cyclists aged at least 18 during the year (born before 01/01/1993). "Competition" licence holders must send in with their application a photocopy of their licence for 2010. Other competitors (FFCT licence holders and non licence holders) must supply the original or a photocopy of a medical certificate stipulating that they are "fit to take part in cycling races" no more than 3 months old on the date of application.

yeah you don't need any of that stuff filled in. important things are the payment (natch!) and the medical cert

as i understand it thats correct, all the other stuff is applicable only if you live in france, you just need your doctors certificate, if like me he also sent me for a heart ECG
