Innovative fabric specialists, Polartec, are to offer 10 cyclists the opportunity to spend five days training with Alberto Contador in October. The competition demands that entrants cycle 1,000km in under a month and only those who ‘keep up with Contador’s pace’ will be in with a chance of winning.
Entry is via the FollowContador website and the competition will run from August 29 to September 26 through Strava. It will run in 10 different countries.
Entrants will be asked to work their way through four levels of personal challenges. When each level is completed, a badge is awarded and the next, more difficult stage will be unlocked. There will also be weekly prizes offered by a number of the brands who make use of Polartec fabrics, including Castelli, Sportful, Rapha and rh+.
Winners will get to join Contador himself for five days of professional training with the Polartec Fundacion Contador Team in Gran Canaria.
