How to WIN:

Performance Across Races:

  • Each race is a standalone event, but your consistent performance over the three events (30 Nov, 7 Dec, and 14 Dec) is crucial.
  • Each race position will score points – the lower your score, the better (e.g., 1st place = 1 point, 10th place = 10 points, DNS = 25 points).

Cumulative Scoring:

  • Your position in each race will be added together for a cumulative score. For example, if you finish 3rd, 1st, and 2nd in the races, your total score would be 6 (3+1+2).
  • The cyclist with the lowest cumulative score at the end of the three races will be declared the winner.


  • In the event of a tie, the final race’s performance will be used as a tie-breaker.

Joining the Training Camp:

  • The overall winner will earn the exclusive opportunity to join the Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team at their training camp for a 2-night stay, immersing in the life of a professional cyclist/team member.
  • Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team will only cover the accommodation and meals of the winner while at the training camp. All other expenses, such as travel to and from the training camp, must be covered by the challenge winner.
