Virtual pro racing returns at Christmas with men’s Challenge of Stars knockout event



Some of biggest names in men’s professional cycling will race virtually during the holidays, with Primož Roglič, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Giulio Ciccone, João Almeida, Mads Pedersen, Caleb Ewan and Sam Bennett all competing on December 26 in the Challenge of Stars event on the immersive Bkool virtual platform. 

Created by Giro d’Italia organiser RCS Sport and first held during the spring COVID-19 lockdown in May, the head-to-head knockout format includes two races: one for climbers on the slopes of the virtual Stelvio and one for the sprinters on the virtual roads of the Tuscan countryside.
