How it Works

R2//TOURCHALLENGE is a virtual event modelled after the Tour de France (TDF). Riders will challenge themselves throughout the TDF timeframe (June 26, 2021 – July 18, 2021) to ride more kilometres, climb more metres and raise more funds for kids and families affected by childhood cancer than ever before.

Similar to the Tour de France, everything will be tracked using a points system. Riders will be allotted daily points as follows:

  • 1 point per kilometre ridden
  • 0.25 of a point per vertical metre
  • 1 point per dollar fundraised

All kilometres ridden and metres climbed will be tracked using the R2TOURCHALLENGE_2021 Strava Club. Fundraising dollars will be tracked through the R2//TOURCHALLENGE website.

A master leaderboard will calculate your points and assign rankings daily. The winning riders* for each of the 3 jersey categories will be awarded daily and will be announced in a daily email to all riders.

 *To qualify for a Rapha prize as a winning rider, a participant must raise a minimum of $500 by the closing of the contest on July 18, 2021. For more information on prizes, please visit the prize page.

Daily Jerseys

Each day, a rider will be recognized as the Daily Jersey Winner in one of the below categories:
