Also, in our weekly routes we propose rides in the competitions of the Dubai Tour, or the Laigueglia Trophy, or a visit to Greece, or the State of Colorado (USA).
SKECHERS CHALLENGE #BKOOLWINTERCUP
Thursday, 8 February: 11am, 5pm, 7pm, 10pm. Friday, 9: 2am (GMT+1)
We’ve entered the 10th week of the Bkool Winter Cup already, and that means it’s time to say goodbye to January, and hello to February!
This week is being sponsored by Skechers, and we have our hands on 3 pairs of some of the most comfortable sports trainers to give away in this week’s challenge.
To enter the raffle is simple. Choose the time that works best for you, open the Simulator 5 minutes before to pair your trainer and sensors, go to the homepage. At the time of the event, press refresh and scroll down to the LIVE section. You’ll see a session that has a yellow box with “featured” inside. Join this session. Everyone who joins during the first 10-minute warmup and finishes the session will be entered into the raffle.
On the outskirts of the city of Broomfield, Colorado, this easy 6-km route begins, ending in the town of Superior. A session that shouldn’t be too tough, except for one grade of over 10%. Thanks to Matthew for sharing it with us. This could be a good choice to warm up, or when you finish another and want to pedal for a few more minutes.
The last 20 km of the Dubai Tour’s centerpiece stage. The fourth day follows what is now a well known route, through the desert, crossing the Hajar Mountains and ending at the Hatta Dam. Save your strength for the steep and tough sprint before crossing the finish line.
A route through the center of Greece, in which you will cross the valley of the Pinios River before ending at the foot of the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, built on a 400-metre cliff. 8 km await you, most of them uphill. Thanks to Tom for shooting and editing the video.
The final part of the classic Laigueglia Trophy, in Italy. Before reaching the straightaway to the finish line, you will do it twice, 29 km, taking on the short but hard climbs of Capo Mele and Colla Michieri. The latter, stretching for 2 km and featuring an average grade of 8%, will be decisive to determine the group that will fight for victory in the final sprint.
