The Strava Challenge will feature the most significant climb in the Pikes Peak APEX, Rampart Range Road. Rampart is the first climb on Day 2 and is the first big test on the longest day of the entire event. It is a 12 mile climb with over 3000 feet of elevation which starts off the 38 mile stage and accounts for much of the stage's 5500 feet of climbing.
The challenge includes opportunities for both locals and non-locals to participate. Locals can ride the segment between Saturday, April 25, 2020 and Sunday, May 17, 2020. 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 21, 2020 and Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 8am MDT, will also receive a complimentary entry for the Pikes Peak APEX.
