Polartec is offering a place in Alberto Contador's training camp

Following on from the announcement of Polartec’s involvement with Fundacion Contador back in February, the innovative fabric brand has taken its partnership one step further and is offering the international community, 10 opportunities to train with Contador himself this October.

The Competition which will be run in 10 countries, will require entrants to cycle 1000 kms in one month [or less] in order to be in with a chance of winning.  Only those that can keep up with Contador’s pace will be able to win five days of professional training with the Polartec Fundacion Contador Team. 

How it will work: via Strava, hopefuls will be asked to sign up on the dedicated website: 29th August to the 26th September.  Each competitor will work their way through four levels of personal challenges.  As each level is completed, the cyclist will be awarded a badge and the next, more difficult stage will be unlocked.  

Entries must be in and the 1000 kms completed by the 26th September. Each participant will have the opportunity to win weekly prizes offered by cycling brand leaders such as Castelli, Sportful, Rapha and rh+ made with Polartec Fabrics. The official launch will be a few days before the European trade bike show - EuroBike 2016 - which will be held in Friedrichshafen 31st August – 4th September. A panel of judges will announce the winners on the 7th October 2016.
