Organizing th Orbit360 events has become a fulltime job (sometimes even more). With your participation you support the Orbit360 team to continue with their work. The entrance fee includes:
Because otherwise it won’t be visible.
After you finished your Orbit, upload your completed ride and tag the Orbit360 komoot account as a participant. This is the way to be included in the official ranking. It is easier to find the account if you have added Orbit360 as friends before.
At any point of the route! We wanted to make to race accessible for all riders. Choose your own start at any point of the route and follow the route until you reach the point where you started.
Since komoot needs to have a starting point for a route (circular courses are not possible), you will have to re-load the route on your navigation device when you arrive at komoot’s starting point.
The race window will be opened from May 29 to August 15.
We decided to leave it up to you if you want to ride clock- or counter clockwise. The decision is aligned with the spirit of unsupported racing and should support your individual choices and preferences. Please note that the route descriptions remain to be written and described clockwise.
Points will be awarded for three different categories:
Finishing Points = 500 points
Series Points: Finishing 3 Orbits = 1000 extra points
Series Points: Finishing 5 Orbits = 2000 extra points
Series Points: Finishing 8 Orbits = 5000 extra points
Leaderboard Points: There are extra points for top 30 positions.

No, this is simply not the idea behind the Gravel Series. Chose a partner (in crime) and tackle the Orbits together!
