Brevet Series Awards
The Brevet 250, Brevet 500 and Brevet 1000 5 x 200km require validation within a single Audax Year, which runs from 1st October to 30th September. Other awards may be achieved over multiple years and will need to be claimed.
Each ridden event can used towards more than one different award, but not for repetitions of the same award.
