Bike Erg World Sprints

This year at 98 we will be taking part in the Concept2 Bike Erg World Sprints.

The BikeErg World Sprints are a virtual indoor cycling championships modeled after the successful Ski Erg World Sprints.

When and Where

The BikeErg World Sprints takes place between July 3-7, 2019. We will be putting all our members through this 4ooom effort on July 3rd in all of our scheduled ESD classes. We will also be recording times that day from all our online members.

The Details

  • Race 4000 meters on the Concept2 BikeErg between 3-7 July, 2019.
  • 98 Trainers will enter times in our Concept2 Online Logbook by July 8 21:00 GMT (17:00 ET).
  • We will send our results directly to Concept2. If we submit 20 or more individual results from the event we’ll be entered in a raffle for a new BikeErg for your 98. Results must be emailed by July 8 21:00 GMT (17:00 ET).

Late submissions cannot be accepted. All results MUST be submitted by July 8 21:00 GMT (17:00 ET).

Verification

For the BikeErg World Sprints, only verified and calibrated times will be accepted. Not only must your time be verified by entering it using an app like ErgData or by using a verification code, you must also make sure you complete the verification calibration if the BikeErg asks you to do one before your piece. If you do not complete the calibration when asked, your time will not be seen as verified by the Logbook.V
