Strava Club & Challenges

G’day,

Since March and the start of our event hibernation we have received a lot of messages and ourselves experienced the comfort to know that fellow mountain bikers from our Rocky Trail Community are thinking of each other when they go out riding. Let’s stay connected in spirit and we are working hard to put things into place that we’ll be up and running events very quickly, once we are allowed to do so again. Why not motivate your families, friends and that mate that just bought a bike these last few weeks?!?

Join us in the brand-new Rocky Trail Racing STRAVA CLUB!
Let’s log kilometers, vertical meters and smiles to send positive energy and good thoughts out to each other!! We are also launching some specific challenges together with Double Strength, which was developed by one of our Rocky Trail racers, Luke Beuchat!

1. Strava Club
2. Special Challenges

Join the Rocky Trail Racing Strava Club and get highlights of what, where, how far and long fellow #rockytrailracers are riding.

Sign up for special Riding Challenges – Members of the Rocky Trail Strava Club can additionally sign up for special challenges we put out. With thanks to Luke from Double Strength we will be running a number of challenges over the next few weeks to keep us all connected and active and RIDING until we can race again.

Basically you

  • (1) have to have a Strava account and follow/be a member of our Rocky Trail Strava Club “Rocky Trail Racing” and then
  • (2) sign up to the Double Strength platform to be ranked on the leaderboards with your Rocky Trail mates. This was developed by Luke Beuchat, one of your fellow #rockytrailracers – it will grab all your activities in the timeframe we set from Strava and create leaderboards for the challenges!

Get started – scroll down for current challenges and to get instructions how to get connected!

Note about UNSUBSCRIBING:

If you would like to unsubscribe from the Leaderboards via Double Strength and the daily updates via email, please send an email to juliane@rockytrailentertainment.com and we will action it right away. You would still remain a member of the Rocky Trail Racing Club on Strava – you can update or change your Strava preferences directly in that App or via the Strava webpage. Thank you.


JUNE CHALLENGES

New mission: EVERESTING!
New option: TEAMS!

We set up three challenges and they are inspired by the recent focus on “Everesting” in the cycling world and the two amazing rides by Lachie Morton, which saw him finally take the record. There are solo quarter, solo half and a pairs full strength missions 😉

New: TEAMS! The full Everesting mission will be taken on by TEAMS!!! Not many of us can complete what Lachie Morton did in one ride under 8 hrs so let’s work together in teams of 2 to do it! Check below how to set up the teams in the Double Strength portal.

In this ‘everesting spirit’, we’d also like to make a shout-out to our friend and #rockytrailracer, the Canadian pro-mountain biker and 24 Hour Solo World Champion Cory Wallace, who has been riding towards Kathmandu on a quest to get back home after getting stuck in Nepal due to the COVID-19 crisis. We wish you all the best – you can do it!

Scroll down, we explain the rego process. It’s all free, let’s have some fun and we look forward to your feedback!

Your mission timeframe: 27 June – 5 July 2020

Note, you will appear on ALL these challenges, as soon as you record a Strava activity and are a member of the Rocky Trail Racing Club on Strava. Please send through feedback or questions via email to juliane@rockytrailentertainment.com and we’ll try to work them all out.

Your mission:
Pick your elevation goal and complete the configured proportion of Everest’s vertical on a single ride (real or virtual).

*Do the FULL STRENGTH mission in a PAIRS TEAMS – how to set up a TEAM:

For a team challenge it’s the cumulative total of all riders in the Pairs Team that contribute to the challenge goal.

1. To setup a team simply go to the Full Strength Challenge page:

2. Click on the “ADD TEAM” button, only one person needs to do this for the whole team:

3. Then confirm by clicking on the ADD TEAM button at the bottom:
