Major Benefits of  Travel Insurance

Medical cover up to £10,000,000. You really don’t need this much but it’s good to have it. If you crash and get hurt, you get ill before, after or during the race you are covered for Medical costs.  Make sure anyway that you have an European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) too.

Search and Rescue cover to £50,000, again unlikely but if you do get lost and need to be rescued if you are injured then this is good cover and unusual for an Insurer to provide it.
