Application:

The organizer will have the task of applying and enforcing (also through its delegates) these indications, adapting them to the characteristics of the event itself in relation to the type of event, the characteristics of the places, the density of attendance and the provisions of the local administrations of the places involved.

Its content is also aimed at all logistical structures supporting the events themselves.
These indications and recommendations are mainly of health and hygiene nature to be observed during all phases of preparation for the event, such as setting up and dismantling any necessary structures, and during the event itself.

The following indications are also valid for sports training activities at events, if organized by Moto Raid Experience.

The goal of this document is, therefore, to provide the staff of our organization, participants in organized sporting events and other persons possibly involved for whatever reason with a series of preventive indications aimed at minimizing the health risk of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection.

The organized events and sporting events despite their different specificity have common temporary activities that can be characterized and identified by “homogeneous areas” in relation to the possibility of contagion and therefore with identical prevention measures of a sanitary nature.

POSSIBLE IDENTIFIED AREAS AND RELATED PROTOCOLS

A) HEALTH TRIAGE: before accessing it is necessary that all participants in the event (pilots, accompanying persons, organization staff, event staff, press officers, photographers, media, etc.) are protected by a surgical mask correctly worn and with clean hands suitably disinfected with hydroalcoholic solution. At the entrance they will have to deliver the filled out COVID-19 self-declaration certifying the presence or absence of SARS-CoV-2 infection and contagion risks for others to the best of their knowledge. This form will be made available when accessing the area.
The organizer will keep a copy of this self-declaration.
In the TRIAGE area, the health personnel in charge will also proceed:

All riders must also have a valid MotoAsi racing license (except in special situations).

While waiting for the starting signal, the pilots are obliged to respect the minimum distance of 2 meters between them and towards any other person present. When they are on the bike and wearing a helmet, this requirement is automatically met.
Since the start / finish area is an area adjacent to normal road and pedestrian traffic, the rules about public areas still apply.
Upon arrival, for the return of the logger devices and any other devices, we will proceed in the same way: wearing gloves and sanitizing the devices.

G) ROUTE AND SELECTIVE SESSIONS: since these are navigation and regularity competitions carried out on roads open to vehicle and pedestrian traffic in which compliance with the Traffic Laws is necessary, the rules provided for by current legislation and all general behavioral rules must always be followed, as well as all those reported in these guidelines.
