A new challenge is born, the Bike Race Segments by Garmin

As a result of the collaboration between GARMIN and OCTAGON ESEDOS, the organizer of the "Bike Race by Octagon Esedos" Mountain Bike stage races, a new competition category with a specific classification has been launched.

It is a classification that makes the fast-paced competition of these races even more dynamic and aims to reward the strongest and most strategic riders in certain segments of the route.

For the fastest riders in the segments

The classification of these Bike Race by Garmin Segments will reward the fastest cyclists in certain STRAVA segments that have already been previously established during the routes of the different stages. These segments will coincide with some of the most emblematic trails of the Bike Races and will be an incentive to the competition.

In this way, a classification will be generated, parallel to the general classification, made up only of the bikers who have completed the established segments the fastest and with the dispute of an exclusive leader's jersey that will be awarded at the end of the competition. 

To qualify for this classification, bikers must comply these 3 simple requirements:

1 / Be registered in any of the Bike Races by Octagon where this classification is disputed (La Rioja Bike Race presented by Pirelli, MMR Asturias Bike Race and Catalunya Bike Race, for the moment).

2 / Be a follower of the different clubs in STRAVA of the Bike Races (La Rioja Bike Race presented by Pirelli, MMR Asturias Bike Race and Catalunya Bike Race).

3 / Have your profile on STRAVA open or make your activity public on STRAVA, the same day of the stage before 16:00 hours.

In each stage, the winner will be given a set of GARMIN merchandising products, as well as the leader's jersey for both the male and female rider at the top of the classification.
