The end of summer brings one of the most important races in the cycling calendar: La Vuelta a España. For 23 days, the best cyclists in the world will take on a challenge that will take them across this amazing country. We know that following this event from home is a great experience, but we want to take it to the next level. How about doing a section of each stage at the same time as the pros? It’s possible with BKOOL!
Tour Spain with Stage of the Day
You’ve probably wondered how hard it must be to complete a great cycling tour. Those endless stages, those first-class mountain passes with ramps that look like walls and those explosive sprint finishes with a hundred and fifty kilometres to go…
Riding a grand tour like La Vuelta requires a level of preparation and training that only professional teams can achieve. But thanks to BKOOL, you too can complete your own personal Grand Tour, following the international peloton on routes that pass through the same areas as the stages.
If the Altu de L’Angliru is being climbed today, you will also have to face its slopes. If the stage is in Valladolid, you will be riding through the streets of the city. The aim is to ride in the same places as the elite, always in the same zone as the peloton. Either by pushing yourself to the limit by climbing the same mountain passes, or by enjoying a ride through the streets of Madrid with your group.
Each day, Stage of the Day will take you to a different place, with a special route that will allow you to ride in the same areas as the best cyclists in the world.
THE CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE: COMPLETE THE STAGE OF THE DAY EVERY DAY THERE IS A STAGE OF THE VUELTA. THAT MAKES 21 STAGES IN 23 DAYS.
Yes, as you can see, you will also be able to enjoy rest days, specifically on the 4th and 11th of September.
You will have the whole day to complete each of the routes that will always appear in the PROMO section of the simulator. Each morning (European time), we will change the stage of the day in order to continue our special pursuit of the international peloton.
At the end of La Vuelta, if you have managed to complete all the stages on the proposed days, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your BKOOL user email address before 25 September. Once we have verified that you have completed the challenge, we will add 20,000 Bkoins to your account so that you can buy the virtual bikes available in our simulator. A great opportunity to ride all the new bike models we will be adding soon.
