Shipping is the athelete/sender entirely responsability, as we advise purshing a travel damage insurace. The shipping company will only offer a "total lost" insurance option.
At this point we do not have an official airline partner, this is just an advise from the organizers based on their travel experience.
-The Azores Airlines, so far are the best option if you choose to travel with your bike. The airline will give you a total of 33kg of weight allowance, which is more or less, your bike bag+bike+riding gear and still be able to bring a carry on bag up to 8kg with your daily clothes. All of this included in your normal ticket price.
