- The Genghis Khan MTB Adventure is a sports event open to everyone, but promotes amateur, or non-professional, cycling. This means that professional cyclists, or ex professionals who have retired less than one year before the date of the event, can only take part ‘out of competition’, i.e. they will not feature in the result list nor receive any prizes. These cyclists are also expected not to influence the outcome of the competition and restrict themselves to defensive riding.
- Definition of a ‘professional cyclist’: A professional or (ex) professional biker is a person whose name features on the current official team list of a UCI ProTour, Pro Continental or Continental team, as well as a UCI Elite MTB team, or UCI MTB team. The team lists are available for checking on the website of the UCI, the International Cycling Federation. You can find them here: http://www.uci.ch/mountain-bike/teams/ . Fast riders who are hired as occasional guest riders for any of the aforementioned team categories, or for a national team appearance, are not considered professionals. The UCI team list is the only criteria we use to define a professional cyclist and there will be no discussion.

- Since the 2003 Stockholm Consensus on Sex Reassignment in Sports, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of autonomy of gender identity in society, as reflected in the laws of many jurisdictions worldwide. Trans athletes (male to female and female to male) are welcome to take part in our Nordic Ways events, as are athletes diagnosed with DSD. However, as most of our events offer race results and related to that prizes and prizemoney, fair competition must be ensured and we therefore follow the guidelines set by the International Olympic Committee (link: https://stillmed.olympic.org/Documents/Commissions_PDFfiles/Medical_commission/2015-11_ioc_consensus_meeting_on_sex_reassignment_and_hyperandrogenism-en.pdf ) . Especially trans athletes who transition from male to female need to be aware of the conditions for participation in actual competition. Trans athletes and DSD athletes are kindly requested to contact the race director of the event following registration to avoid any potential issues during the event. The person in question will handle the registration with discretion and according to the IOC guidelines – not because we necessarily agree with those guidelines, but because we are not in a position to re-invent the wheel.
- Nordic Ways preserves the right to refuse people from entering the event if their participation would harm the integrity or reputation of the event. For example, people known to have been suspended repeatedly for breaching the WADA anti-doping code, or people who have engaged in any kind of misconduct during previous editions of the event or other known events
