This week we offer you the first stage of the Giro d’Italia 2018, which, for the first time, will travel outside of Europe, on its first days in May, when it heads to Israel.
But that’s not the whole story…
For this week’s challenges, we’re heading over to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We’ve selected a great route that was recorded by Tom with real video, giving you a real sense of the road ahead! As usual, we have various different times.
We’ve got a 3-month Bkool Premium Subscription up for grabs that we’re giving away randomly between all the users who take part from start to finish in at least one of the challenges.
You just need to enter the simulator at the time of the challenge you’d like to take part in and click on the highlighted session.
Starting from the French town of Le Bourg-d’Oisans, at the foot of the Alpe d’Huez, you will begin a gentle 14-kilometer ride to Oz. On the final part you’ll find a couple of climbs, but nothing too tough. Thanks to Anders for shooting and editing the video on these classic Tour de France roads.
The Corsa Rosa will begin its 101st edition in Israel, where its first three stages will be held. A 10-km time trial with plenty of ups and downs, starting and ending in Jerusalem, will determine the first classification for the Giro d’Italia 2018. We encourage you to check it out.
A ride forming part of the La Vuelta a España on multiple occasions, with an exhibition by A. Contador, this time brought to us in a video by Gabor. This is a 21-km ride that’s all uphill, as you rack up 670 m of ascent. A tough session on which you’ll have to pace yourself well.
Visit the Irish county of Wicklow, completing this 24-km route between Hollywood and Glendalough. A hard session in which you will tackle the climb to Wicklow Gap, before ending with a fast descent to the finish line.
