Did you ever want to be part of a very special club of people? Do you like collecting Zwift trophies or Strava badges to virtually stand out from the crowd? Do you have a certain longing for finisher shirts or participations kits like the Ironman or Haute Route races can offer? Yes?! Welcome to the Tacx Challenges!
We have created an events series in our Tacx Desktop software that allows you to become part of a very special group of people. You will be rewarded in real life and be able to become a Tacx Hero and forever listed on our Heroes wall. Even more, you will be one of the few people in possession of a uniquely designed collectors-item Tacx Challenge bottle!
We’ve created three challenges: the Catalonia Challenge, Cobbles Challenge and La Marmotte. To complete the challenge, you’ll have to finish the required routes that are part of the specific challenge within the specified time. The challenges vary in the amount of Films and days you have to finish them, but the stages have no time cap and speed racing is not needed. This also means that you can even participate if you have to stick to a specific training plan. Intervals on watts, cadence or distance can easily be done on the software as well and add some extra difficulty to your intervals, especially when the interval starts on a cobbled section or while climbing Alpe d’Huez. Nobody said training is easy anyway.
The videos are accessible via the Premium or Premium HD membership. All videos are filmed one by one and hence allow for a very exclusive ride feeling. You will feel like you are actually in the area and through the year we will create new challenges and bottles to make sure you stand out from your peers.
What do you have to do?
Choose the Challenge you want to ride, hop on your Smart trainer and enjoy the worlds of Catalonia, Belgium, Switzerland and/or master the famous climbs around La Marmotte. You can choose the time, date and location of your ride. In that way, your best friend’s wedding, your wife’s birthday or missing nanny for your kids cannot be your excuse to not participate.
Dive into the beautiful filmed real-life scenery while listening to your favourite music or while just wanting to leave the day’s troubles behind. When you finish a Challenge, just fill in the form on the Tacx website and wait for approval by our strict but fair jury.
Win a holiday to Spain!
To make these challenges even more special, we have something great to give away! If you complete the Catalonia Challenge (12 videos within 7 days) before May 1st 2019, you are eligible to enter the raffle and have a chance to win an exclusive trip to the exact region you just mastered! Including flights (leaving from Amsterdam or Brussels) to Barcelona and back and 3 nights’ accommodation in the Estival Eldorada Resort with breakfast. Who doesn’t want that?
So, take your chance to meet one of the many pro athletes living around this region and get sweaty all the way to the win!
