Participants must be in good health and properly trained. Unlike French races, a license and / or a medical certificate is not required to participate in cyclosportive events in Switzerland.
However, the organization strongly recommends that participants see a doctor to confirm their ability to perform this type of effort.
Each participant must have their own insurance (accident and third party liability insurance), covering bodily injury and material damage on Swiss territory.

Biological check-up “Tour des Stations”
Our partner Unilabs offers you a mini biological assessment established by a sports doctor. The report brings together the crucial tests that have been scientifically validated for their correlation with the performance and safety of sports practice in an endurance context.
To benefit from this test at the preferential price of CHF 100.- incl. Tax, all you need to do is make an appointment at a Unilabs Center and complete this “Form – Tour des Stations Report“.
N.B. The payment is to be allocated directly in cash to the chosen Unilabs Center.
The Report will make it possible to analyze the following key points:
- Blood count II: blood count to confirm the correct adaptation of the hematocrit to exercise. Too low a hematocrit limits endurance, too high a hematocrit can be dangerous.
- Cystatin C: a marker of renal function not affected by muscle mass or creatine intake. An elevation may mean a decrease in kidney function. The test should be done if there is no inflammation or thyroid disorder.
- Ferritin: evaluation of the iron stock essential for the formation of hemoglobin. A rise may correspond to iron overload or inflammation (in this case CRP rises). A decline shows an insufficient stock of iron.
- CRP: marker of inflammation; CRP must be low to correctly interpret ferritin and is used to detect the presence of micro-inflammation.
- Lives. B12: also used to synthesize hemoglobin, which is often deficient especially in certain diets.
Unilabs laboratories provide you – via the BIOCHECK UP program – with a complete range of assessments, a large part of which can be used for monitoring the athlete’s nutritional balance.

Equipe Enervit: a loyal ally
A well-done job – says Alex Zanard, a world-renowned champion whom we are proud to include among our ambassadors – requires loyal allies. We have one such ally: Equipe Enervit. An independent company made up of physicians, researchers, nutrition science specialists, trainers, coaches, all people who are constantly committed to research and innovation. An expert team that works with athletes and supports them in their achievements and that has helped us write a new chapter in the history of sports nutrition and supplementation. Before, during and after sport.
Champions of the past and champions of today
In the course of all these years Enervit, thanks to the precious contribution by Equipe Enervit, had the honour of contributing to the achievements of great athletes. In 1984, we made a dream come true, with the organization of the Hour Record by Francesco Moser in Mexico City. This outstanding goal was made possible thanks to great innovations in the cycling world, new training methods and revolutionary nutritional strategies. Enervit also provided its support to Reinhold Messner while he was climbing 14 mountains over 8,000 metres without oxygen. And for more than 30 years we have provided medical and nutritional advice to the Giro d’Italia. Our ambassadors are Miguel Indurain, Davide Cassani, Stefano Baldini and Alex Zanardi, very well known in the sports arena. Our elite athletes include Sofia Goggia, Federico Pellegrino, Friederik Van Lierde, Daniel Fontana, the athletes of the Italian cycling national teams, the athletes of the Italian cross-country skiing, biathlon and ski mountaineering national teams. And many others in Italy and abroad.
Today Enervit is proud to be Ironman Europe’s Official Nutrition Partner for five years starting from 2018. In the words of Alberto Sorbini, Enervit CEO: “the fulfilment of a great dream. Our company has now the opportunity to make its products and the underlying nutritional strategies known to the many Ironman athletes in Europe”.
