Gravel Series CHE 2022

June 4 – August 14

The Orbit360 Gravel Series is about to land in Switzerland this Summer. Orbit360 is an unsupported, ultra-endurance gravel series where from 4 Juny to 14 August 2022, riders can choose their Orbits out of 6 different routes and collect points. The race window will be open for ten weeks and riders can start at whatever time and location along the Orbit they want. Tracking via komoot, completed Orbits will be listed in the virtual leaderboard that will determine the season rankings.

Please read the race manual for the Gravel Series 2022 and make sure to understand the rules.

The Idea

Due to the 2020 pandemic many bike events had been cancelled. For us, that didn’t mean the end of cycling. We rather saw it as a new beginning: we wanted to share the best routes in Germany with our cycling community. From that moment on, Orbit360 was born, the first unsupported gravel adventure series where riders can compete against each other – safely and in an exciting new format!

When: June 4 – August 14
Where: all over Switzerland
Entrance fee: 49 EUR
Modus: Solo or Peloton

FAQ

Organizing the 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:

  1. A free digital goodie package
  2. The chance to swap your badges for great deals with our sponsors
  3. Your name will be listed in the official Orbit360 leaderboard.

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.

PLEASE NOTICE:
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 June 4 to August 14.

Points will be awarded for three different categories:

Finishing Points = 500 points

Series Points: Finishing 3 Orbits = 1000 extra points

Series Points: Finishing 6 Orbits = 2000 extra points

Leaderboard Points: There are extra points for top 60 positions.
