Start: June 14 (Sunday) at 10:00 Moscow time
Sochi is a city with an Olympic heritage, famous for its unique cycling route: a picturesque highway rises up to the Caucasus Mountains along the Mzymta River.
The route starts on the Black Sea near the Imeretinsky Hotel, goes up to the Rosa Khutor ski resort, then a U-turn and back down.
The total length of the route is 95 kilometers, climb — 600 meters, 1 lap.
The route matches the IRONSTAR SOCHI 113 cycling course by 95%.
The race will be held in AR format (participants will be able to see each other on the screen in real time). This is a new technology that was launched by ROUVY just a few months ago and has already become a hit.
Participation is completely free. New ROUVY users have a free 14-day trial period.
For those who have already used ROUVY and whose trial period has expired, special vouchers will be issued that provide access to the platform for 7 days. To receive a voucher, contact us via a feedback form and we will send you a promo-code.
During the race there will be an online broadcast in Zoom in Russian and English. All participants will be able to chat with other participants and the presenter. Download and install Zoom, on Sunday 45 minutes before the start follow the link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8296940885
If you have problems with video/audio, we recommend reading the instructions.
Do not use Zoom on the same device on which the ROUVY program is installed, it may lead to lags due to the high load on the processor. For example, if you installed ROUVY on your computer, use Zoom on your smartphone.

If you are not sure about the speed of your Internet, we DO NOT recommend connecting to the broadcast in Zoom.
