The Zomegnan Challenge

Post by Pigna »

Image

This is the only challenge approved by our only god Zomegnan |zome4

The rules are simply:
  • The goal is to draw the stage with the highest upward drop without exceed 300 km.
  • There are no restrictions on the nationality of the stage, it can also cross national borders.
  • You can only insert paved roads and covered by Google Street View, except the climbs (paved and not) covered in a GT.
  • No circuits or street repetitions allowed, only intersections.
  • The arrive must be praticable for a GT finish line.
The partecipants must only post here the stage link. There isn't a deadline: the user with the highest upward drop there is the horder of the challenge. I invite you to post a stage, also if it isn't the hardest to improve your ranking. The ranking will be for stage, not for use (or rather if a user tracks the 3 hardest stages, he occupies all the podium).
The stages require the approval from a member of staff or an admin before entering in the ranking. Also the member of the staff or admins can partecipate, but they can't approve their stages.

Question for the mods: you can't go up to the Rifugio Auronzo, the editor doesn't allow fo it
It could be a seasonal closing, like Stelvio or Agnello in the winter.

You could track the route with an editor that ignores these data (Strava, e.g.) and import the GPX in a track here.
