I have an existing bike box that doesn’t meet the specifications, is that OK?

No. Only one team turned up to Chapter 1 with boxes that did not comply and they ended up with bent axles before they even started. We require standardised boxes to ensure that our logistics operation runs smoothly. Trailers have been constructed with widths, heights, lengths and weight in mind. We have not arbitrarily picked some dimensions to make your life difficult. Sticking to the guidelines makes our job easier which in turn allows us to focus on the important things (like you) and keep costs (and hence entry fees) down.
