INTERNATIONAL SUPER RANDONNEUR
The International Super Randonneur Award ("ISR") was established in 1989 to encourage randonneurs to take part in Randonneurs Mondiaux events in different countries.
To become an ISR, you need to complete a Super Randonneur series (i.e. 200, 300, 400, and 600km) under the Randonneur Mondiaux code. Each ride must be in a different country. This can be done over any period of time.
There will also be special recognition for riders travelling to different continents to qualify, by additional designation:
- No special designation recognises brevets ridden on one continent.
- "2C" recognises brevets on two continents.
- "3C" recognises brevets on three continents.
- "4C" recognises brevets on four continents.
Elevated ISR awards are also be awarded:
- No special designation implies 200, 300, 400 & 600 brevets.
- An "ISR 600" recognises the completion of four rides of at least 600km.
- An "ISR 1000" recognises the completion of four rides of at least 1000km.
- An "ISR 1200" recognises the completion of four rides of at least 1200km.
For example, a rider undertaking three 600km rides in Europe and one 1000km in North America is designated an ISR 600 (2C) - a 2 Continents ISR 600.
- Entry procedures are described and application form are here.
- There is no time limit for the completion of the award.
- Riders can collect the stamp and signature of the finish control of their completed Brevets, each of which must be in a different country.
- Riders generally make a backdated claim by filling in details of event, country, distance, date, brevet number, and sending photocopies of their brevets.
- The card of a successful rider will be validated by the RM President or his assignee who will designate the rider an International Super Randonneur.
- A longer distance may substitute for a shorter distance.
