I presume brevets ridden in September count as pre qualifiers? Cant quite remember when the new year starts.

The international season ends at october 31st. All BRM's ridden until then count for the pre qualification. Depending on where you're residing (France or outside) BRM's from november 1st count as qualifiers.

The amount of riders doing 600 is staggering, at least in the Netherlands, 3 600s on the calender, the amount of riders on both already held is the same as we usually had for all 600s in a year. I've seen footage of well over 100 riders starting a 600 in the Phillipines. Ayone else heard of more countries with a massive increas in 600k riders?
If that's the case then qualification with only a 300 would be very risky and a 600 a very good idea.

Maybe time to petition for another 600 to be run in .nl in October?

I may have just noticed an interesting quirk of Aukweb (or I'm plain wrong!):

My Results doesn't specify wot events are BRM (nor does My Calendar actually)

Neither do most of the results lists pages that I've clicked to.

On the My Results page, the first column in the table is ACP Brevet.
I think if there's a number listed in here. you are good.

enter membership number
The left most column is called 'ACP Brevet'

Ones that have got a number in there were BRM. Ones that haven't are either not BRM (OR haven't been validated as BRM yet. AFAIK there is no distinction between not BRM, and BRM but not validated as such yet... is that what you meant?)

It is what it is. It's not what it's not, so it must be what it is.

Just had a little heart palpitation. :o
I seem to have screwed up - yet snatched victory from the jaws of defeat

My only 400 for 2018 was a 300 plus 100 ECE =400.
I breezily assumed that would count as part of a pre-qualifier SR but maybe not?

I've just created an account at the ACP site http://www.paris-brest-paris.org/index_inscriptions.php?Langue=en 
There's a results tab which brings up your results (BTW I needed to manually enter one BRM 'approval' number from my AUK results page into the search box to kickstart this)
It isn't showing my '400' Instead that ride is logged on the ACP PBP site as a 300.

So I'm thinking; "OMG I don't have a kosher SR. I can't prequalify " :'(
But of course I don't need my 2018 SR. Only the 2019 SR. Which wont include any ECEs.
My 2018 600 (BCM) still allows me to pre-register on the 28th, right? :thumbsup:
Heart rate now returning to normal.

Don't forget that one of your 2018 rides needs to be in Japan.

That's quite a handy reminder as I can enter on Monday.

Have created an account and tagged my 2018 rides.

Something to look forward to after a crappy Winter so far.

Despite having 17 more days to wait until I can pre-register, I've set my account up.
Site is surprisingly good, for a cycle club website system, from France...
Even got a working database look up.

Pity there's a lot of trnaslations missing that result in a blank content pane, and the French BRMs aren't accessible in the database yet either but...

Yes, while the main paris-brest-paris.org website feels very much "under construction", the registration site worked very well. It's only that 1200+km events like LEL are not yet in the system (as indicated), and neither are the Flèches Vélocio (Arrows).

Pre-registration opens on Monday 14, anyone know whether that is at 00:00 (ie Sunday night)?

what is the code for the 2018 rides to be entered into the pbp website? i've tried two that are available in the aukweb results page (next to the ride) and none of them seem to be picked up.

Mine were populated by selecting my club (I think) but are referenced by the number in the 'ACP Brevet' column on my aukweb results page. eg 221980

I've just signed up to the site and got my pre-qualifiers logged, all set for when pre-registration opens on Monday. That was painless enough.  :thumbsup:

I just registered an account on the PBP website; all good, until I went to search for my 1,500 Alpi 4000 from last year, using the ACP brevet no, comes up with someone else's ride from 2017!

It does state:

"The French and 1200+ BRMs are not yet available!
L'inscription au PBP ne dépend pas des résultats présents dans cette liste"

I wonder if they will fix this before 14/01/2019??  ???

Not 00.00 on the dot but not long thereafter.

I’m past staying up until midnight.   I’ve got a note in my calendar at work to do it Monday morning.

If it does open at 1 second past midnight then surely that is 11pm UK time?

The times in the Brevet Card aren't linear either. ACP front loads the first 400 and 600 and then relaxes things on the way back.

Put another way, you don't get 45h to get to Brest, but you'll always get the full 90h to get back to Paris. If I can be bothered I'll dig out my PBP Brevet Card and have a look at the distances/times.
Off topic but roughly how much front loading is there? What was the difference in time between P>B and B>P (in 2015)?

About 43h to get to Brest IIRC in 2011.

This link has some links to definitive info:
    https://www.bikeforums.net/long-distance-competition-ultracycling-randonneuring-endurance-cycling/996491-2015-pbp-control-times.html

Obviously it'll all be slightly different in 2019 with the different route and distance because of the different start location.

2015 90 hour start:-

For an 18:00 start Sunday, Brest (618km) control closed Tuesday 13:19. That's 43h19m.
