Yellow Jersey challenge

261,46 km ^1944 m max. 2,0 % avg. 20,5 % max. 5 days

Ride 9 cycling videos within 5 days to be rewarded with a unique challenge item and listed as a Tacx Yellow Jersey challenge hero! You’ll challenge a total distance of 261,5 km and climb over 166 kilometres, with an average incline of 2% and a max. slope of 20,5% on La Planche des Belles Filles.

We’re heading towards the biggest Grand Tour of the year: the Tour de France! This means a new Tacx Challenge as well and we proudly present you the Yellow Jersey challenge. We’ve selected the finest climbs in our software the pros will have to conquer as well this year. Brace yourself because just like Le Grand Boucle it won’t be easy!

Equal to the first stage we start this Challenge with a real ‘Spring Classics’ ride in Belgium where you have to conquer the iconic Muur van Geraardsbergen. Thereafter we’re heading to stage 6 towards the most well-known and feared climbs of the Voges: la Plance des Belles Filles. A steep climb of 7 kilometres with a maximum slope of 20,5%. In the second week of Le Tour  the pros are going to fight for the yellow jersey in the Pyrenees. Here they have to climb among others the Col de Peyresourde and the legendary Col du Tourmalet, and so do you of course. Hardly recovered from this effort, we move over to the final week of this Grand Tour: the Alpes. Just like the pro riders in stage 18, you are treated with some impressive climbs like the heavy Col d’Izoard and the Col du Galibier. And if this wasn’t enough, we then go up to the stunning climb of Col de I’Iseran on the edge of the luxury ski resort of Val- d’Isere. The final spectacular mountain stage of this year’s Tour de France has two steep and long climbs in it and guess what? We’ve got them as well for you! Prepare yourself for the Cormet the Roseland and the very long climb to Val Thorens. Bon voyage!
