Ride 5 cycling videos within 12 hours to be rewarded with a unique collectors item and listed as a Tacx Giro challenge hero! You’ll challenge a total distance of 120,3 km and climb over 64 kilometres, with an average incline of 2,7 % and a max. slope of 25,1% on the Muro di Sormano.
After the famous Spring Classics it’s time to move over to the Grand Tours. As the first in line is La Corsa Rosa we present you the Giro challenge! Get yourself a pink cycling kit, refresh your Italian vocabular and make sure you have enough pasta at home to treat yourself afterwards. Just like the real grand tour this year, we kick-off in Bologna with a time trial to San Luca. Beware of the very steep climb to the cathedral of Madonna di San Luca with inclines up to 22%! Then we move over to stage 15 where you have to conquer the pretty tough Madonna del Ghisallo. Did you know that she is declared as the patroness of cyclists by the Vatican and that you’ll find a chapel at the top which is has museum pieces like the bikes of Merkx and Coppi? Next you have to brace yourself for the brutal Muro di Sormano. Okay, we must confess that in this year’s Giro they ride the more flat Colma di Sormano, but this is the Tacx Challenge, right? Hardly recovered from this ordeal you have to get ready for stage 16: the Queen Stage. You know what that means…We wish you all the best to master the notorious Mortirolo! We finish it off with a part of stage 18 where you can expect a fairly easy ride up to Cimabanche and then roll down to the finish. Buona fortuna!
