Bkool is working with the organizers of the legendary Mount Washington Hillclimb bike race in New Hampshire, to create a virtual race up what is hailed as the highest peak in the Northeast.
According to Bkool, participants can ride up the virtual mountain as many time as they want, competing for prizes and bragging rights.
The route was created using Bkool’s 3D World gaming-style simulation and precise resistance control technology.
The race is open to anyone with access to the internet and a controllable ANT+ smart trainer, including compatible models from Bkool, CycleOps, Elite, Tacx and Wahoo.
The virtual course replicates Mount Washington’s fierce-some 7.6 mile course which features an average grade of 12 percent, along with extended sections of 18 percent, followed by the last 100 yards that produces a leg-breaking 22 percent grade.
Everyone who enters the Virtual Mount Washington Hillclimb will get a coupon for a three-month Bkool premium subscription, and prizes will be awarded including full-year premium Bkool subscriptions and entries into the 2016 or 2017 Mount Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb.
The virtual race is sponsored by Quad Cycles in Arlington, Massachusetts, and BikeTag.
