The Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox is announcing the 2021 Strava Challenge!
Again this year the Strava Challenge will feature a significant climb in the Pikes Peak APEX, Mt. Herman Road. Mt. Herman is the first climb on Day 2 and is the first big test on the longest day of the entire event. It is a 7.8 mile climb with just under 2000 feet of elevation which starts just three miles into the Day 2 start.
The challenge includes opportunities for both locals and non-locals to participate. Locals can ride the segment between Saturday, April 24, 2021 and Sunday, May 16, 2021. The male and female with the best times will receive a complimentary entry for the Pikes Peak APEX. Non-locals will participate by guessing the combined winning times for both the KOM and the QOM in the competition. The guess that is closest to the combined times received between Tuesday, April 20, 2021 and Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 8am MDT, will also receive a complimentary entry for the Pikes Peak APEX.
