Your entry pre supposes that all of your team members sign the waiver when they join the Tour. Competitors with medical conditions are required to notify the organisers.

Honda Jazz prize conditions
All riders that compete for the whole Tour week, and who pays the full entry fee as outlined will be in the draw to win the 2019 Honda Jazz Lead Car. To win this car you will have one “ticket” in the draw for every $250 you raise to help one of our “official” charity beneficiaries. eg Raise $1,000 and you have “4 tickets”! An official charity is one listed on our website. The winner must in person be in attendance at the final prize giving at the Wellington Prize Giving on April 13th. If a rider has had to withdraw during the Tour because of injury but still attends the prize giving that rider would still be in the draw.

A rider choosing, (individual or in a team) to enter as a “linked Charity rider” agrees to raise a minimum of $250 for the charity they have chosen to be linked to. In the event that this is not fulfilled the rider’s entry could become invalid and 50% of the entry fee paid refunded. The organisers reserve the right to decide on this case by case.

A Charity rider paying the full $1300 entry fee has no requirement to raise any money for a charity, as a portion of the $1300 will be given to a charity on that persons behalf. A Charity rider will qualify with one ticket in the Honda prize car draw.

Entry fee variation.

Entry fees have been set based on all anticipated costs.  Air New Zealand cannot confirm until late February 2018 their charter costs but have given TONZ management a strong indication. In the event of a significant rise in Aviation fuel costs or associated Charter costs (between the publication of this website and 28th February 2018)  it may be necessary to add a surcharge to every entry fee paid.. Should this occur (and if requested) TONZ will accept a cancellation of an entry and refund in full the entry fee. After 28th February it will not be necessary to invoke this clause.

In entering Tour 2019 riders accept to abide by the decisions of the Organisers and their staff and volunteers.
