    Ride opens for attempts at midnight 18th Feb 2019, and closes on Midnight on the 14th April 2019, ride must be completed within that window for it to count otherwise you get the time of the slowest rider plus 5%.

    OK, a ride for the puncheurs among us, the very short Rojas Sauzal, a mere 3010 meters, but with a height gain of 330m that's an average gradient of more than 10%. I love the Canary Islands, and have probably driven along this road at some time in the past, I'm sure cycling it would be more 'interesting'


    Post your times in the thread and I'll update the Goats League Spreadsheet

    I rided this climb today (24 January), 15.02 for me...is not valid?
    On BigRing the Challenge say:
    Finish all rides between January 1 and December 31 to complete the challenge.

    Hi Silvano,
    BigRingVR operate on a slightly different set of rules to this league. A ride is only valid if completed within the time frame set, in this case from midnight 18th Feb 2019, to Midnight on the 14th April 2019. Consider it as good practice for the next time.:okay:
    Whatever though your quickest time counts on either league.

    As long as the quickest time is set while the ride is open ;)

    Yes that's true, apologies for missing this off the original reply.

    Just checked that out. Silvano (@Gattorantolo) and me have already tackled this one so at least I've got someone to chase (me), doubt I'll get anywhere near Silvano.

    One heck of a short sharp shock for tomorrow.

    Silvano (@Gattorantolo), as you can see now, yours 'to early' ride is valid in BigRing VR Challenge (https://bigringvr.com/Challenge.aspx?challengeID=22).

    If you want to have a valid ride also in this League, you must do it again.

    I have also done a test. A day before this ride was open in the League (and not shown as a challenge ride on BRVR), I made this ride as a recon ride on the end of my regular training excercise and it is now (after the ride is finally shown as a BR challenge ride) marked as completed in BR VR Challenge.

    BigRingVR challenges indeed have the rule that all rides in the challenge have to be done between the start and end date of the complete challenge.

    13:01 That got the old ticker tocking. Glad I beat my previous time from back end of last year.

    That was my third attempt at that ride and the first this year. This time though I never got out of the granny ring so I think that helped. I was a bit out of puff by the time I'd got to the top:heat:

    I'm going to have to use @Crook Town AFC as a pacer....just to see how fast he pulls away from me
