Tacx Challenge 2010: 2007 Amstel Gold Race

Post by Wesp » Thu Dec 16, 2010 10:45 pm

Tomorrow starts the new Tacx Challenge. It's a 26 km long ride from Gulpen to the finish in Valkenburg. It includes the Kruisberg, Eijserboschberg, Fromberg, Keutenberg and finally the Cauberg.

I will do my best, but why such a short distance? Way, way too short for a 50 year young/old marathonbiker like me

Make it 2 challenges: 1 short for about 45min-60min and 1 longer for about 100-120 minutes.
groetjes Fred

It's not "l'étape du Tour" every day...

It would be nice to be able to see the brake type of the contenders in the Tacx Challenge. This way, everyone can compare their achievements with other people using the same equipment (Fortius, I-magic or Bushido). I have the feeling that Bushido riders are a lot faster (especially downhill) than Fortius riders...

Hi everybody!
It's a great pleasure to ride the challenges. But there is one thing that is a little bit irritating: How is it possible to ride downhill with 90km/h with a cadence of 90? There are some guys who are able to do this. Is it the Bushido as WillemG mentionend?

As long as the rides are not seperated to i-magic, Fortius and Bushido, the ranking is just nice to have.
And some common rule for calibration would make sense as well.
