We will bring you the challenge that will keep you glued to the smart trainer this August and with which you won’t want to miss any of the Vuelta a España. You will be able to follow the latest cycling news while you train with thousands of Bkoolers.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to complete a big cycling tour by yourself? Those endless stages, the first-class mountain passes with those ramps that look like walls, and those explosive sprint finishes with one hundred and fifty kilometres to go?
To ride in a grand tour like the Vuelta a España requires a level of preparation and training only within the reach of the professional teams. But thanks to BKOOL, you too can complete its thrilling routes, following the international peloton through routes that run through the same areas as its stages.
The aim is to always be in the same area as the peloton, riding in the same places as the best cyclists on the planet, gritting our teeth while climbing the same mountain passes or simply enjoying a pleasant ride with our teammates.
Every day, Stage of the Day will take you to a different place, with a special route to ride in the same areas as the world’s best cyclists.
THE CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE: COMPLETE THE STAGE OF THE DAY EVERY DAY THAT A STAGE IS HELD IN THE VUELTA. A TOTAL OF 21 STAGES IN 24 DAYS.
Yes, as you can see, you will also be able to enjoy rest days, specifically on 22nd and 29th August and on 5th September.
You have the whole day to complete each of the routes, which will always appear in the PROMO section of the simulator. Every morning (CEST time) we will change the Stage of the Day to continue with our particular pursuit of the international peloton.
As we know it is a tough challenge, and it is not necessary to do each stage on its corresponding day. If one day you need a break, have plans, or feel like doing another one of our routes, no problem. As long as you complete all the stages within the days of the event, you will have done the work of a professional, so you will be in the draw.
When the Vuelta is over, if you have managed to complete all the stages in the proposed days, send an email to email@example.com before 18th September using your BKOOL user email address. Once we check that you have completed the Challenge, we will send you a special Finisher bib, we will add 5,000 BKOOL points to your account so that you can equip yourself with the virtual kits of all the teams or buy the virtual bikes that are about to arrive in the simulator and you will also be entered into a draw to win an official jersey of the British track cycling team signed by its main stars, a BKOOL polo shirt, and a 3-month Premium BKOOL voucher.
