Continuing to demonstrate the capabilities of Augmented Routes, Rouvy has made available for virtual racing the iconic Stelvio Pass.

Rouvy, an indoor cycling platform for cyclists and triathletes, has released Stelvio Pass from the Italian Alps for its augmented/mixed reality mode. The 12.4 mile course, with a 15% max grade, is an iconic route for the cycling community, which summits thousands of riders at the place in August for the Stelvio Bike Day each year.

“We are thrilled to provide the global cycling community with an opportunity to ride the iconic cycling places from home. For many amateur cyclists, getting to the Italian Alps may remain a dream. Now anyone can experience this climb in their training room,” said Petr Samek, CEO of Rouvy.

“While eventually mapping the planet with Augmented Routes is our distant dream, there is a plan to cover most of the famous cycling spots. I used to train in Italy, and rode Stelvio a couple of times. The local climbing roads provide a great workout, and the ability to ride them again in a group virtually gives you a great feeling and motivation,” adds Tereza Hurikova, marketing manager for Rouvy and former European MTB Champion.

Rouvy is a unique indoor platform with augmented overlays over geo-synced, real-life video footage. The latest release incorporates animated 3D objects within GPS-synced video routes. The library contains 2,500 videos, and the number is growing. Cycling athletes of all levels enjoy the realistic experience of riding and racing outdoors from the comfort of their homes — any time and anywhere.
