Maglia Rosa Challenge

202 KM ^ 9575 M 4.0% avg. 21,6% max 7 days

Ride all 7 selected cycling videos within 7 consecutive days to be rewarded with a unique Maglia Rosa badge* and listed as a Tacx Maglia Rosa challenge hero. The combined route covers a total distance of 202 km and an impressive 9,575 altimeters. Prepare yourself for the most beautiful but gruesome mountains of Italy with slopes up to 21,6%

All good things come from Italy. Whether it’s the food, the culture, the beautiful landscapes or one of the most exciting races in the world: the Giro d’Italia. As an ode to this Grand Tour we’ve selected the best Italian climbs for the Maglia Rosa challenge. We start this challenge with the unrelenting Monte Terminillo in the Apennine mountain range. Then we move over to Lake Como for the Madonna del Ghisallo. The church atop the steep hill became a famous place for cyclists. In fact, la Madonna del Ghisallo is declared the patroness of cyclists and this was even confirmed by Pope Pius XII. It might give you some extra strength to climb the difficult and very long Colle delle Finestre. Up next are the demanding Zoncolan and the iconic Stelvio. This one is on the bucket list of many cyclists and the Cima Coppi (highest mountaintop) of this year’s Giro. Your legs should now be warmed up know for the Sella Ronda: a breath-taking tour in the Dolomites and one of the most scenic rides in the world! For dessert, or tiramisu if you like, we have the immortal Passo Gavia on the menu. Famous for the brutal stage of the Giro d’Italia in 1988 when it was so freezing cold that La Gazzetta dello Sport ran the headline ‘The Day the Big Men Cried’. Molto successo!

* Please not that you will not receive a bottle for the challenge, but an embroidered badge instead.

The official pink jersey of Castelli, also known as the Maglia Rosa, was raffled among the participants who joined before November 1st 2020. And the lucky winner is…Martin Lundqvist. Congratulations!
