Announcing A Classic Challenge from Specialized
Gear up for some serious climbing to celebrate (and suffer) the Spring Classics
Riders, do you think you can climb the cumulative elevation of five Spring Classics in 45 days? Do you think you can do it not just once, not twice, but three times? Now is your time to find out. Specialized and Strava challenge you to climb a grand total of 105,312 feet from March 15 to April 30. The Classic courses may be better known for their distances or questionable pavement, but here are the cold, hard, climbing facts:
Milan-San Remo – 6,260 feet
Tour of Flanders – 5,709 feet
Paris-Roubaix – 3,259 feet
Liège–Bastogne–Liège – 10,883 feet
Amstel Gold – 8,993 feet
A custom Specialized and Strava commemorative water bottle and surprise finisher gift is yours if you can climb this set of Spring Classics three times, not to mention the gargantuan bragging rights you’ll earn. This challenge is going to take some serious guts, but not without some serious glory. Good luck to all of you. Join the Challenge.
Each rider who logs 105,312 feet (32,100 meters) in elevation gain from March 15 to April 30 will receive a custom Specialized and Strava commemorative water bottle and surprise finisher gift, not to mention the gargantuan bragging rights you’ll earn. Good luck!
