2. OCEANIA CHALLENGE - TAUPO

You will start alongside Kaimanawa Reserve (home to T1 under race conditions) before heading through Taupō and onto Broadlands road for a gradual climb through the glorious, green countryside. Get ready to turn left at the Hardcastle Lagoon onto Vaile Road, before looping back to Broadlands road to finish the ride.

How to I access my 30-day trial?

New accounts will also receive a 30-day extended free trial when they register via the form below and use the code emailled to them.

Can I ride a route multiple times?

Yes, you can ride each stage as many times as you like, however it only earns one point for your club.

How are points scored?

TriClubs will be awarded one point per stage complete, for every club member that completes the course. Our final podium will be based on points, (not time) so this challenge is about getting as many people from your tri club involved.

My club isn't listed in the form

If you’re club isn’t listed in the form below, simply fill it in under “other” and we’ll add your club to the challenge.

Do I need to be a member of a club?

You don’t need to be a member of a club to enjoy this event, you can join our ‘Go FulGaz TriClub’ for the purpose of this challenge however note that members of the ‘Go FulGaz TriClub’ won’t be eligible for the club prizes mentioned above, only individual prizes.

New to FulGaz? Here's the quick start guide.

1. Download FulGaz and set up a free account. To activate your extended trial, simply enter the promo code found in your registration email.

Downloading the trial gives you full access to FulGaz with no restrictions on content, or how often or how far you ride. If you’re returning to FulGaz for another go, send us a support ticket and we’ll hook you up with another trial on the house.

2. Connect your devices
When you load up FulGaz and hit Get Started, you’ll be greeted with a pairing screen. Here your smart bike/trainer/speed sensor will be picked up and listed. Select the devices you’d like to connect and click Let’s Ride.

Pro Tip If you can’t see your devices when trying to connect, they are most likely paired with another app (RGT, Rouvy, Zwift). You will need to deselect your trainer from that app’s pairing screen, quit that app, and restart FulGaz.

3. Set your preferences, weight and slope scaling
Click the settings icon to take a moment to set your display preference (metric or imperial). For the most realistic experience, enter your weight and bike weight. There are many other settings here also; it’s best to get a feel for riding FulGaz first before adjusting these. Start at around 60% uphill to get the feel. You can adjust this in ride also.

For the event itself, you won’t be able to adjust your bike weight. Only rider weight so please keep that in mind.

Pro Tip If you find the hills too hard, you can adjust the Slope Scaling, this is essentially the “trainer difficulty”. Adjusting this won’t make you faster, but it will make hills easier!

4. Download a video and ride
We always suggest downloading the video ahead of time. For any event you must download the video.  Before the event, test your set up with something from the Easy collection. These rides will give you a good “feel” for how FulGaz looks and interacts with your trainer or smart bike.

5. Get event-ready
Before you start your event, make sure you turn up at the start line ready.

Here’s a quick checklist

      • Download the ride ahead of time
      • If joining us on Zoom for social rides, download the app and run it on a different device.
      • Stay hydrated – have at least two bottles of water available
      • Have a towel and fan to help you cool down.
