We're enhancing this year’s Segment Challenge at the Farm-to-Fork Fondo series! Introducing The Stages Segment Challenge.
The rides will now feature course segments where riders can use Ride With GPS to test their abilities on harder sections of the ride. While the Farm-to-Fork Fondo isn’t a race, the Stages Segment Challenge gives the event a competitive edge for cyclists who wish to participate. It's short stretches of the ride where people itching to really put the power to the pedal can do so and show off.
The male and female cyclists with the fastest times win the coveted Farm-to-Fork Fondo polka chicken jersey by Pactimo. Additionally, one participant of the Stages Segment Challenge at each event will be picked at random to win a Stages Cycling Power meter worth $800!
Now, whether you’re eyeing the polka chicken jersey or just looking to improve your personal record, these training plans and tips can be used by anyone looking to improve.
Training plans will be e-mailed to registered Farm-to-Fork Fondo participants 6 weeks in advance of each 2017 event.
HOW IT WORKS
Registered Farm-to-Fork Fondo participants RSVP for the challenge on the Ride With GPS Farm-to-Fork Fondo event pages. During the event, riders use Ride With GPS to record their times. Cyclists who want to participate in the challenge give it their all over segments marked by the Stages Segment Challenge signs. The times are then ranked into six categories based on age and gender to see which riders were fastest.
