German Cycling Classic Eschborn-Frankfurt releases Virtual Race Locations on ROUVY

ROUVY and GFR announce a virtual challenge on three iconic and newly released ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT routes to take place Dec 7  - Dec 31. Thanks to the 1:1 simulations by ROUVY, the professionals and amateurs alike can now ride the Feldberg, known as the TISSOT Bergkönig and the legendary Marmmolshainer Stich of ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT. All courses provide enhanced augmented immersive realistic experience.

The elite race course

The WorldTour race of the German Classic runs over 187.5 kilometers between Eschborn and Frankfurt. The climbs to the Feldberg and the Billtalhöhe as well as four times the steep Mammolshainer Stich and two times the Ruppertshainer sum up to an altitude of 3,200m. Having passed these Taunus icons, the riders reach the finish line right in the city of Frankfurt.

The courses on ROUVY

The released road courses on ROUVY are the shorter version race course of 40,5km, the Feldberg Climb of 11,4km and the legendary Mammolshainer Stich 5,8km. The routes have a 1:1 branding of start and finish gates, as well as other real-life objects. So, the riders of ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT will enjoy the atmosphere of realistic presence as at the actual event. The courses are to be released shortly and available for riding this week.

Nathanael Bank, Project Manager of ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT, sees the collaboration between GFR and ROUVY as a great moment “While we see the first snow on the Taunus hills, we want to present riders around the World with a special winter experience of Eschborn-Frankfurt. Within the next three weeks, athletes can ride three iconic routes and take on their very own challenge. This is the variety of the German Classic.”

Petr Samek, CEO of ROUVY “We are happy to host a Challenge and extend Eschborn-Frankfurt locations. Our vision of complimenting outdoor races with a digital version now becomes a reality. It is so exciting for the global community of ROUVY riders from over 200 countries to be able to join in and be a part of the official UCI races happening in real life.”

While it is interesting for professional athletes to have the ability to complete individual and precise training for the race, indoor training also provides amateur athletes the opportunity to ride in groups - both in-place and online - or compare themselves to pro riders. The ROUVY App is a great way to meet up online for real-time group rides or races. In the actual video footage of the courses, the participants see a realistic 3D representation of themselves and all other participants. This community aspect promotes motivation to meet and train or race together online.

ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT Challenge will last till the end of the year on ROUVY and registration is now open.

professionals and amateurs alike can now ride the Feldberg, known as the TISSOT Bergkönig and the legendary Marmmolshainer Stich of ESCHBORN-FRANKFURT.
