I've completed Madrid Gijon Madrid in August/2018. Is it enough to qualify for the 184 hours group? I'm in doubt about what means "2018/2019 season":

1 - an ACP season 2018/2019 (the one that begins in November/18 and finishes in October/2019); or...

2 - two full years (2018 and 2019 - 24 months).

Your best bet is to contact the organisers on this, before committing to pre registration etc.. Contact them through the website or FB page. I think it's likely they'd be fine with it, but I'm not the one enforcing the entry rules.

I think the 2018/19 season goes from 1/11/2018 to 31/10/2019 (ACP year). I dont see how a season could be interpreted as two full years. If they meant that they would just have said completed in 2018/19 with no mention of a season. Still no harm in asking if they will let you enter.

For general questions about the event and rules, I recommend the Facebook group Wild Atlantic Way Audax. The event organisers regularly check posts there, and answer questions.

This is good to hear  8) I've done nothing this year due to two trips to the major trauma unit in the space of 5 months after RTA's and 2018 was no better due to a family bereavement in 2017 so I had all but given up riding WAWA this time . I was planning on pleading my case when entries closed on the off chance that it wasn't over subscribed and hoping the organisers might fall soft and let me in but I will get my begging letter off today then start spamming Eamon on Farcebook  ;D

So who is pre registered now, and which version have you registered for? I'll be on the 220 hour version.
