The 6D BOB is organised by the Tourist Office backed by the municipality of la Plagne Tarentaise and the Société d’Aménagement de la Plagne.
The 6D BOB is an individual time trial on the Olympic Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton track, an infrastructure dating from the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games. The event takes place in a single stage at a free pace over a distance of 1.5 km with a difference in altitude of 125 metres D+ at the foot of the track.
The individual time trial is a special race in the sense that the rider has no performance reference apart from his own feeling and the possible time trial results of previous competitors, which forces him to make a maximum effort throughout the event.
2 CATEGORIES POSSIBLE :
Leisure category : Without medical certificate and no classification.
Competition category: With medical certificate or license to be given at the withdrawal of the bib if not provided at registration. A ranking will be published with a podium award.

To take part, it is essential :

– to be fully aware that the role of the organisation is not to help a runner to manage these problems

Please note: the email from Dokeop is sent to the email address you used to register for the event. Also remember to check your spam.
At any time, it is possible to receive a new document submission link from the email address you used to register for the event. Just go to the Dokeop homepage (click on “submit a document”) or directly to the link renewal page.

Rules of the race
The Organizer entrusts DOKEOP SAS with the management of supporting documents via its application. Its missions are :
- Collecting the supporting documents of the participants registered for the event.
Verify that these supporting documents comply with the rules of the event and the legislation in force.
Regular follow up by email of the participants who have not yet submitted their supporting documents.
Communicate the status of each verified supporting document to the organizer of the event: in wait of verification/ valid / refused
Archive these supporting documents on a secure server.
To finalize the registration for the event, the participant will receive an email from Dokeop inviting them to submit their application document within a time limit set by the organizer of the event. The use of the application implies the immediate and unconditional
acceptance of Dokeop’s terms and conditions.
The participant then must follow the link to the Application. You are free to create a member account or not.
The Application is independent of the Sports Event Registration Platform used by the organizer.
The Participant or the gurdian guarantees the accuracy of the data transmitted as well as the authenticity of the supporting documents. In the absence of accuracy and/or authenticity of the supporting document, the participant may not claim either against DOKEOP SAS or against the Organizer, particularly in case of an accident occurring during his/her participation in the sporting event.
DOKEOP SAS reserves the right to refuse any document that it considers suspicious and possibly falsified with regard to a bundle of clues. It is reminded in this respect that the production of a false medical certificate constitutes an offence of forgery and use of forgery: article 441-1 of the Penal Code punishes this offence with a sentence of up to three years
imprisonment and a fine of up to 45,000 euros
It is specified that any Supporting Document submitted by an Athlete or his/her legal representative must meet the requirements set out in the French Sports Code (Articles L231-2 et seq.) for Athletes who wish to practice within the federal framework because they wish to participate in a sports competition authorised by a sports federation.
Medical certificates must mention: (i) the absence of any contraindication to the practice of the sport or discipline concerned “in competition” or “as a leisure activity”, (ii) be dated less than one year before the date of the competition for participation in a competition without a licence and (iii) include the contact details, signature and stamp of the doctor who carried out the Athlete’s examination.
In the case of disciplines with particular constraints as referred to in article L231-2-3 of the French Sports Code, a medical certificate less than one (1) year old must be provided establishing the absence of contraindication to the practice of the discipline concerned only when obtaining the first licence and then when renewing it.
In accordance with article D. 231-1-4-1 of the French Sports Code, for minors, with a view to registering for a sporting competition as referred to in article L. 231-2-1, the athlete and the persons exercising parental authority shall jointly fill in a questionnaire relating to his or her state of health, the content of which is specified in article A. 231-3 of the French Sports Code.
The persons exercising parental authority over the minor athlete shall certify to the Organiser that each of the sections of the questionnaire is answered in the negative. Failing this, they are required to produce a medical certificate attesting to the absence of contraindication to the practice of the sport or discipline concerned “in competition” or “in leisure” dating back no more than six (6) months.
Dokeop accepts Supporting Documents written in the languages accepted by the regulations of the federation of the discipline concerned. If not specified in the rules, only Supporting Documents written in French or in a foreign language with a French translation are accepted. The content of the French translation shall prevail over the content in the foreign language.
Maximum number of runners
Limited to 250 Runners
Cancelling your registration
As part of your online registration, we offer you the possibility to subscribe to a Beticketing cancellation insurance with MutuAide (11.53% of the registration fee). In case of unforeseen and/or accidental impossibility to participate in the event, you just have to come back to your runner’s area (until July 27, 2023) and ask for a refund.
You will be reimbursed 80% of the registration fee in the days following the event and without having to provide any proof.
Please note that the cancellation insurance only covers the registration and not the paid options subscribed in the form.
More information here: https://claimticketing.assur-connect.com/conditions/download/245
You ensured your bib when you registered and you need information? Please contact Assur Connect on firstname.lastname@example.org
No bib numbers can be exchanged (between races or competitors) and no resale is allowed.
An identity card is required for the withdrawal of the bib (individually).
Compulsory material: your 4 safety pins or other hooks for the bib, reusable cup or flask and a zipped bag to put your food in the refreshments
Hiking poles are NOT allowed
Bibs are handed out individually to each competitor, as long as they provide an identity document and the bib card which will be sent a few days before the event.
Your first name will be written on the number for all registrations before the end of June 2023.
The number must be worn on the chest or stomach and must be visible at all times during the race.
It must therefore always be worn above any clothing and may not be attached to a bag or a leg under any circumstances.
The name and logos of the partners must not be modified or hidden.
It is important to bring your own safety pins or belt to hang your number in accordance with the regulations.
The distribution of race numbers will take place in La Roche from 3.30 pm, July 27th, on presentation of the withdrawal card and an identity card.
Safety and medical assistance
A regulation medical team will be at race HQ in Aime or Plagne Centre throughout the whole event. These posts will be in radio or telephone contact with race HQ.
The first aid posts are there to assist anybody in danger using the organisers’ own means or those of the public health service.
It is up to a competitor who is in difficulty or seriously injured to call the rescue service:
- by going to a first aid post
- by calling race HQ. The phone number will be registered on the bib’s number
- by asking another runner to alert the rescue service
It is up to each competitor to assist anyone in danger and to alert the rescue service.
Remember that all sorts of unexpected weather or race-related occurrences can result in you waiting for rescue longer than expected.
Your safety will therefore depend on the quality of what you have in your bag.
A competitor who calls a doctor or a member of the rescue service subjects himself de facto to their authority and undertakes to accept his decisions.
Members of the rescue service following medical advice and the official doctors are empowered to:
- retire any runner incapable of continuing the event (by cancelling their number)
- evacuate runners they consider to be in danger by any means at their disposal.
All runners must pass through the 1 food station (food and water) on arrival.
Only runners wearing a visible number and who have been duly checked will be allowed into the food stations.
Maximum time allowed and latest check out times
Withdrawals: apart from injuries, any competitor that withdraws must let the organisers know at the start or finish of the course, so that his bib number can be cancelled.
The competitor is then no longer under the organisers’ control.
Race stewards on the course and people in charge of checkpoints and feeding stations are authorised to enforce the regulations and to impose immediate disqualification in case of infringement, subject to the following rules:
Automatic disqualification will be applied in the following cases:
- Refusal to pass through the start to activate the electronic chip
- Cutting a corner to make a major shortcut
- Dropping litter (deliberately) by a competitor or a member of his entourage
- Lack of consideration for individuals (officials or runners)
- Not assisting someone in difficulty
- Cheating (example: using means of transport, sharing a number …)
- Failure to carry an electronic chip
- Failure to pass through a checkpoint
- Refusal to comply with an instruction from race management, a race steward, the person in charge of a checkpoint or feeding station, a doctor or a member of the rescue service
- Refusing a drug test
- Leaving a checkpoint outside the time limit
- Any other infringement of the rules will incur a sanction to be decided by the race jury
Any competitor may be subjected to a drug test during the event or at the finish. In the event of refusal or non-compliance, the athlete will be sanctioned as though he had been convicted of drug-use.
Alteration to the course / cancellation of the race
The organisers reserve the right to alter the course or location of the first aid posts and food stations at any time and without notice.
Should the weather be too bad (heavy rain or snow at altitude, high risk of storm …) the start may be delayed.
In case of bad weather and for safety reasons, the organisers reserve the right to stop the event, change the route or alter the time limits.
In case of cancellation of the event for all causes, no refund will be possible (a possible postponement of part of the registration fee may be considered for the following year)
The organisers hold civil liability insurance for the duration of the event, which covers financial loss for which they, their officials or the participants are responsible.
Each competitor must have personal accident insurance covering possible search and rescue costs in France. Such insurance can be taken out with any organisation of the competitor’s choice, and in particular with the GBC Montagne insurance company, partner of the 6000D:
Impact Multisports is a specific insurance for sports activities.
According to Article L333-2 of the Sports Code, “the organizers of sports events […] are the owners of the right to use the events or competitions they organize.”
Participants are informed that the Grande Plagne Tourist Office, holder of the exploitation rights for the various 6000D races, may be required to photograph and/or film the event in order to promote future competitions. This filming can be carried out by flying over the courses of the various races with the Phantom2 studioSport remote-controlled aircraft.
The image of the participants captured during the event may be freely distributed by the Grande Plagne Tourist Office, provided that
• there is a link between the image and what it illustrates
• the image does not offend the dignity of the person
• that the image is not used for commercial purposes.
The 6000D is a legally registered trademark. Any communication about the event or the use of images of the event must respect the name of the event, registered trademarks and with the official agreement of the organization.
No photos of the 6000D event may be sold without the agreement of the race director.
