Ride 1,000km in Campagnolo’s Grande Giro Challenge on Strava
Italian brand is encouraging you to rack up the distance in 30 days. Well, 25 days now
Campagnolo is challenging cyclists to ride 1,000km (621 miles) in 30 days to mark the victories of Nairo Quintana and Vincenzo Nibali in the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France respectively. Both riders used Campag components.
The Campagnolo Grande Giro Challenge is running on Strava until 14 September. It actually began on 16 August, last Saturday, so if you start today you have 25 days to cover the distance – an average of 40km (25 miles) per day. This is Campagnolo’s Grand Tour for those of us who aren’t pro riders – a ‘Grande Giro’, in Italian.
Here’s what you need to do if you’d like to take part:
Join the Campagnolo Riders Club via www.strava.com/clubs/campagnoloridersclub and see where you stand against others taking part in the challenge.
Campagnolo are encouraging riders to take photos of their rides and share them via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, using the hashtag #GrandeGiroCampagnolo where relevant.
The Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain) starts this Saturday with Movistar’s Nairo Quintana currently favourite to take the win. If he does, that would be a clean sweep for Campag in this year’s Grand Tours.
