1. HOW TO CLAIM A BIG ?

Imagine that this morning, you claimed the Passo di Mortorolo side North and that you want to claim it and add 1 in your BIG-score (superlist 1000)

 

Step 1 : Homepage - clic on the menu "1000 BIGS", surrounded in blue,

 

Step 2 : In the opened window, clic on zone 9 - Italy

Remarks :

* you don't know where it is ? There are helps for you in this window.

   - To help you, you can clic on the left on "map" and search the good triangle showing the climb, clic on the triangle and you will find it

   - Other way to help you, you can clic on the left on "queries", the names are listed in alphabetical ranking

* you climbed an eurobig (nr 866-875 & 951-1000), you will find them on the right in the zones ZONE+1 to ZONE+6

* you climbed something out of Europe and try to reach the superbig. Clic on the right up, on continents and follow the instructions by filling the formular, submitting it and waiting for the agreement of the jury.

 

Step 3 : In the page zone 9 - clic on the number 694 - Passo del Mortirolo

 

Step 4 : In the page of the Passo del Mortirolo, clic on the button "claim" on the right of the side N

Remark : if like in our example, you already claimed another side, you can see that it is in black, named "claimed", and then not claimable anymore - other consequence : your score will not do +1

If every side is in grey, you can claim the side that you want and your score will do +1

 

Step 5 : In the window opened - fill in the precise date of your claim (today in the example) and clic on update

Remark : if your score is over 164 bigs and that you aren't a contributing member (10€), you will not have the permission to claim.

If you are a contributing member, you can claim what you want when you want. But the claims are mostly verified about their possibility (not a 2800m height in december for example) and cannot be managed in virtual platform on hometrainers (like Zwift)

If you climbed it the day that you noted on your bike (not electric), your claim is OK. Congratulations. Your score makes an happy +1.

If this climb is also a climb of the national challenge NAT-ITA, your score in this challenge will also make automatically, without any new action,an happy +1.

If this climb is also a climb in the challenge TGV, your score in this challenge will also make automatically, without any new action, an happy +1.

(note that in our example, it will make +1 in both challenges because you can see in the snagscreen of step4, that below the name Passo del Mortirolo, you find the numbers ITA-187 and TGV-G1990-2)
