Lonely Stage Challenge


Feel the need to get out and ride in an event in these strange times? Well, that’s not going to happen for a while. However, the braintrust behind Operacion Muerto, has come up with an idea that may satisfy that need, the Lonely Stage Challenge.

The idea behind the challenge is to ride the 4 stages listed below. You must do this solo and you have until June 19th to complete all 4 stages. Record your cumulative time for these 4 stages, the rider with the fastest cumulative time will be declared the winner. Don’t feel like racing this and just riding it, well, you’re the real winners in our books. Only want to ride one or two stages, that’s cool too.



  1. Ride alone (original rule) – NO EXCEPTIONS – okay one exception, you can ride with someone you are isolated with, but no drafting. Updated rule – You can “ride” with one other but must keep the 2 meter physical distance when riding side by side, and 4 meters inline.
  2. There are 4 stages, you need to complete all 4 stages, unless you don’t want to (you can be like one of those specialist riders in the tour de france riders)
  3. You only get 1 attempt at each stage
  4. Start May 8 and finish by June 19
  5. Record your time for each stage, combine all 4 stage times for your overall time.
  6. Use whatever you want to record your time.
  7. Solo rides prefered (except with iso-friends), try not announce your ride days and start times.
  8. If you encounter another “competitor” on the course drop them, or get dropped
  9. Don’t cheat or bend the rules, if you do you’re a dick, don’t be a dick
