To enter, you need to have the Trailforks app. The Trailforks app can be downloaded for free here. You then have two options for entering the contest during April 8, 2019 - May 8, 2019.


Using the "Record your Ride" feature, users will earn the Challenge Badge when they record a ride log that fulfills the ride requirements.

When you earn the badge you will be notified and given the opportunity to 'join' the contest.

Opt-In to the "Continental Tires Gripology Challenge" by signing in to Trailforks and follow the on-screen prompts under "Challenges."

2. Complete a Ride Equivalent to the 2019 Albstadt, Germany World Cup XC

Log a ride equivalent to one lap of the Albstadt, Germany XCO course to earn your official Challenge Badge and a chance to win the Grand Prize. You must use the Trailforks app to track your ride performance history during the contest period - April 8, 2019 - May 8, 2019. Only sanctioned trails recognized by Trailforks will count towards your Performance History. You will automatically be eligible to earn one (1) Entry in the Contest if – by the end of the Contest Period – Trailforks indicates that you’ve completed a ride that meets the ride requirements.

Ride requirements must be met:

Minimum Distance: 4km
Minimum Climbing: 190m
Minimum Descending: 190m


Contest Leaderboards will display all contest entrants (people who have earned the above badge) and will rank them by the total km's ridden during the contest period of April 8, 2019 - May 8, 2019. Track your rides on the leaderboard to see how the competition stacks up


You can win one of 50 Continental prize packs. Prize draw for the "Continental Tires Gripology Challenge" will be drawn at random. For every 4km you ride in the contest period you gain additional entry ballot for the prize draw. The more you ride during the 4 weeks the more entries you will have in the draw.

 Yay for winning free stuff, but then you'd have to ride Continental tires.

 Sounds like you have a lot of experience with Continental’s tires that have been completely re-done in the last year.

 @lccomz: Srams brakes have been completely re-done, doesn't keep the PB mob from doubting their quality though.

 If you win and don't want them, I'll gladly wear them out for you.

 They did have a lot of quality issues on their older line but the redesigned ones have been performing great and testing well in independent reviews.

 If I do one ride that is 40k, and 2000m of climbing, is that 10 entries, or 1, or 0 because it's too long?

 Maybe they can make the next competition more complicated, they are bound to have record-breaking participation.

 You would think, but I have trailforks linked to Strava. It automatically entered me after my ride this evening.

 It's not that complicated, join the contest then record a ride using the Trailforks app.

 Central question necessary to win: Are you smart enough and tech savvy enough to log your rides?

My answer: No, definitely not, but I'll ride my bike anyway.

 If you have Strava -> Trailforks data transfer activated will it work?
  • 1 0
 Good question. I also wonder if it works with .gpx files from mapmyride. Anyone know?
  • 2 0
 Yes if you have your Strava connected to Trailforks and auto-importing you are eligible. Manual GPX file uploads are not though.

 @canadaka: Thanks. I don't see how we keep track of total entries. So far I've gone on 2 rides (11mi total/2mi climb/3mi descend & 16mi total/4mi climb/4mi descent)and can only see one entry. Also, what are "points"? Sorry if these are silly questions.

 @canadaka: I have done a few rides that meet the minimum requirements, recorded them on Strava, and have my Strava synced to my Trailforks account. However, I don't see any indication that I was awarded the badge. Is this because my ridelogs are private?

 @canadaka: Enjoying the features of Trailforks and it's a useful app, but...I'm up to 10+ rides that meet the criteria and still only see the badge with no indication of additional entries. I figured out the points, more or less.

 Can I hobble my busted ass around a trail without a bike? Just using the app and hoping nobody notices the two hours it's going to take me to limp that far?

 Err how do I run Trailforks if I'm already running Strava?
  • 3 0
 You can run Trailforks instead of Strava and sync the ride to Strava when you save. Or you can run at the same time. Or you can use Strava and connect your Strava account to Trailforks settings up automatic importing. Your choice.

 Can you sync Garmin Connect to Trailforks like you can with Strava?
  • 1 0
 Currently no, but you can go Garmin to Strava then Strava to Trailforks. Hopefully will add a direct Garmin connection this year, we used to have one with their old browser plugin method.

 @canadaka: Got it, I was doing Garmin to Strava to Trailforks but Strava got annoying when they switched the feed from sorted by date to an algorithm and started suggesting I give kudos to people I don't follow. Not stoked on the social media approach with Strava...
