From http://www.audax-club-parisien.com/EN/382%20-%20RulesRandonneur%205000.html
"an approved FLECHE VELOCIO : The achieved mileage is used (360 km minimum of 24 hours)"

Effectively the distance is rounded down to X00km distance, since virtually everything else is counted as X00km. The only exceptions are the Fleche de France, which count towards the ACP's R10000. In that case, combining the actual Arrow distance ridden with the actual Fleche de France distance might push the total over the next X00km increment.

Is it me, or has info on the ACP awards been removed from the AUK website under the refresh? I can't seem to find them.

Try this https://www.audax.uk/awards-pages/audax-club-parisien-acp-awards

Is that actually linked from anywhere? I can't find it from the rewards menu or any of the rewards pages.

Also, seems the actual requirements for the awards isn't on the page like it was on the old one.

Might be a bit early, but I've a North of England Super Randonnee planned (starting at Hexham). I just need to collect the photies and get it approved.

Ideal, gives me time to lose enough of the spare tyre...
I'm also hoping that it being in the North of England means there's some good high speed descents in there, as by the sounds of CETs Welsh one the descents are mostly as nadgery as the climbs.

What goes up must come down!   ;D    Its difficult in 600km of maximised ascent to avoid a couple of dodgy lanes, although generally surfaces in Wales are good.  On the plus side, the descent into Llanberis is a scorcher...

It's linked on this page https://audax.uk/about-audax/awards-and-trophies/
Currently linked from: https://www.audax.uk/about-audax/
But the old site 'Results and Awards' takes you to 'Results' https://www.audax.uk/results/
with no signpost guiding one to where 'Awards' are sitting comfortably: https://www.audax.uk/about-audax/
I suggest a simple addition to the rubric in the main page: https://www.audax.uk/results/ saying (words to the effect of) "Awards are covered here" and a link to https://audax.uk/about-audax/awards-and-trophies

Fab that's me. I am not very clever, I was looking for one number for the entire ride rather than an individual one next to my name....
One number per human. Else it wouldn't work.
I always assumed a homologation number would uniquely identify one particular ride, but it seems ACP re-uses numbers  :facepalm: #125863 is my ride of The Border Raid last July, but it is also a 400km brevet done in 2017 by one Alan Santos.

Wait, how does that work?!

Does each Brevet have it's own number? Making the homologation number + Brevet number making a unique key? Or it unique only per year?

ACP has the same (consecutive) numbers for each distance (each series starting from 0001). Including the distance information should make them unique but I recall something about each four year cycle (around PBP) recently. Others will know more about this.

yes, when I put my numbers in from last year for pre-reg I was given the choice of me or some norwegian who'd done a 600 in 2014.
It seems to know who you are after that point though.

Presumably claiming these awards is dependant on official results from PBP which will not be out until January judging by last time.

Good point - it's been added.
But please note the best way to make these observations or to request minor changes is to mail them to webcontent@audax.uk
