BKOOL WINTER CUP – ORANGE MUD
Thursday: 11h, 14h, 17h, 19h, 21h. Friday: 1h, 3h, 5h (GMT+1)
This week’s Winter Cup Challenge is brought to you by Orange Mud. The philosophy at Orange Mud is very simple, make the most efficient, well crafted, and super strong gear.
This week, they’ve given us an orange personalised changing towel. It’s a changing towel and car seat cover, all in one! The Changing towel has an adjustable belt with a secure clip that can be put around your waist to assist when getting changed in a carpark or beach, reducing the risk of embarrassing moments. Once changed, you can place the changing towel on your car seat to protect it from the outside elements.
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.
An easy 12-km route that is quite flat, along the eastern coast of Queensland. Starting from the banks of the Pioneer River, you will head north, bound for some hills, though it won’t take too much of an effort to tackle them. Thanks to Andrew for shooting this video Down Under.
A 13-km ride session in which you will take on one of the climbs faced by the racers in the Milan-Sanremo, on Saturday, March 17, at the 109th edition of this event. The Passo del Turchino, with an average grade of around 5% along its 3 km, could trigger a breakaway, but half the route is still left to go. You can also do the final part of the race via the following link.
The Bkooler Fergal offers us this 14-km video route, featuring 180 m of slope. You’ll be able to pedal around the small town of Keenagh, in the Irish province of Leinster, on a clear and sunny day. A session with a couple of uphill sections awaits you, but they’re not too tough.
The Norwegian town of Vøyenenga is the starting and end point of this 22-km route, in which you will pedal through the forest. Of intermediate difficulty, the first half of the ride is uphill, with an average of grade of 4%, and some sections exceeding 12%. Fortunately, the rest of the ride is quite a bit easier, as it’s downhill from there.
