Hand bikers who are not part of a rehabilitation team can register as an individual participant.

Due to the large number of individual participants in recent years, we decided that from 2024 only individual participants can participate who live in the Netherlands (or nearby) and can complete the medical screening there. 


The online registration is from January 1st. A limited number (62) of starting certificates is available to individual participants. We closed the registration in february.

The entire process of registration and medical screening is in the document Procedure individual participants HandbikeBattle.

Once registrered you’ll get an invitation to fill out your medical records in Sportvitalit. The medical screening data must be in no later than March 15th and the registration fee (90 euros) before january 15th. ¬†

If you are later than the deadlines, you will be at the bottom of the waiting list and your registration will be compromised. The provisional invitation to tender shall be final after the consultation and control of:

  • Medical screening data (no later than March 15th): see Medical screening
  • Copy of your rating
  • Payment registration fee (90 euros) via NL82RABO0386153639 to Stichting Handbike Events, compared to participant HandbikeBattle and first name and last name participant before january 15th.

Participants who unsubscribe before March 1st will receive the registration fee minus 45 euros administration and Sportvitalit costs. If you unsubscribe after March 1st, the racing shirts will be ordered and you will not get the registration fee back. Of course you’ll get the shirt.

The costs for participation include:

  • Match participation (care posts and medical support)
  • Race tenue (racing shirt)
  • Transport of hand bike and participants back to start
  • Finisher shirt

The entire procedure for the registration, and medical screening of individual participants is described in a separate document.

PLEASE NOTE: since 2023 we strictly adhere to all deadlines for registration, payment and medical screening. If you do not comply, you can not participate. 

Final ranking
From the 2023 edition, we will separate the team participants and the individual participants for the final classification. Read more about this in the competition rules.

Each individual participant is required to cycle up with a buddy. The buddy is not allowed to cycle in a handbike because he can’t intervene quickly enough if necessary. The buddy doesn’t have to register and doesn’t pay registration fee.
