I called into the Medical Centre at Fougères on the way out, and told them I had a sore neck. I asked for a medical exemption certificate. Cunning eh.

They offered me a medical exemption certificate but said that I would be disqualified if I used it. I'm not sure they understood what a medical exemption certificate is for. Not so cunning after all. Also, in all the rush to get a hat before the ride, it turns out I got the fit wrong. I'm really disappointed in the last minuteness of the change, giving me no time to prepare. Anyway, what's done is done. I'll get a better fit for 2027 - meanwhile back to the joy of caps.

I read the Penalty List again - it says something like "noone can be stopped from riding" for any penalty (although this is contradicted for lights  :facepalm: )
So you should always be able to finish the brevet.

I haven't completely confirmed Ricki Goode's protest ride yet. He told me he would register - to get a wristband for stuffs - then start solo (no lid!) and thus on a Private Excursion, before the 90h groups. He has no times on the tracker, and I heard he abandoned quite early.

Top man  :thumbsup:
