Catalonia challenge

332,9 km 9,780 km 2,94% avg. 18% max. 7 days

Ride 12 cycling videos in Catalonia (via the Tacx Desktop app ) within 7 days to be rewarded with a unique collectors item and join the raffle to win a 4-day holiday! You’ll challenge a total distance of 351,6 km and climb over 200 kilometers, with an average incline of 1,38% and a max. slope of 18% in the film “Girona Banyoles tour – Stage 2″.

Catalonia is the home of many pro cyclists as this area has everything they need. It offers all types of terrains with a huge variety of excellent training roads. Dutch pro rider Robert Gesink moved to Girona a couple of years ago. “I can go up into the mountains, into the Pyrenees. During summer you can go to the beach. There are some great climbs there and you get different views. That’s why I like this region. It never gets boring.” This relatively new cycling paradise where over a hundred of professional riders live is the perfect spot for a challenge!
