In honour of the 3 grand tours, SHIMANO is challenging you to ride 333km or more during in the next 3 weeks.

The grand tours of professional cycling are highly anticipated fixtures of the summer months, serving as inspiration to get out and ride more. But with 2020’s grand tours shifted to the Autumn, you surely still need your fix of summer cycling, so let the SHIMANO Grand Tour inspire you!

In honour of the 3 grand tours, SHIMANO is challenging you to ride 333km or more between Tuesday 21st July and Monday 10th August.

If you complete the challenge you stand a chance of winning exactly the same equipment that the pro’s use: SHIMANO’s top of the range DURA-ACE Di2 groupset (disc or rim brake) with a R9100-P power meter!

Oh… and if you think riding 333km sounds easy then, for those riding 21 days in a row (2 rest days allowed), just like the pro’s, SHIMANO will have some special prizes up for grabs!

What’s more, to inspire riders across Europe in the challenge, SHIMANO’s neutral service team will be at three popular cycling locations in Europe to offer support, advice and mechanical maintenance (although unfortunately no sticky bottles).

Shimano Neutral Support cars will be present at the following locations:

  • Netherlands: Thursday 23 July at Amerongse berg (parking bay on top)
  • Spain: Thursday 06 August Madrid region
  • Italy: Sunday 02 August, Siena region

Exact timings and locations will be communicated via Shimano Facebook pages in Netherlands, Spain and Italy.

To enter, head over to the Strava Challenges page and enroll in the SHIMANO GRAND TOUR challenge. Winners will be contacted by email from Monday 10th August onwards.
