April: There’s no better time to be a fan of our sport, and perhaps no worse time to be a professional cyclist. From the muddy cobbled straightaways of Paris-Roubaix to the steep and relentless ascents of Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the pros endure the unimaginable – weekend, after weekend, after weekend, after weekend. Simply finishing these races is an accomplishment.

This month’s Challenge is to suffer alongside the peloton and ride 1,225 kilometers, the total combined distance of April’s five Spring Classics. Rise to the test and you’ll unlock the ability to purchase a pair of custom-designed Specialized Purist water bottles, emblazoned with a subtle homage that commemorates your accomplishment.
You’ll have 40 days to complete the challenge and can accrue the 1,225 kilometers in as many rides as you wish. We’ll award you with milestone badges at 25%, 50% and 75% completion. Don’t forget to set weekly goals to help you finish in time.
