1. ŠKODA TOUR LUXEMBOURG - OPENING STAGE
The 30km part of Stage 1 (Luxembourg – Luxembourg) is starting in Larochette, in the north-east of Luxembourg and finishing in Vianden on top of the famous Niklosbierg. Vianden is located in the north of country and is know for the Vianden Castle.
The route that will lead to Vianden will pass the eastern part of Luxembourg and will be mostly flat till the ascension of the Niklosbierg (4.4 km à 6,1%). The first 600 meters of the Niklosbierg climb will be the tricky ones due to cobblestones.More Info

5. ŠKODA TOUR LUXEMBOURG - FINAL STAGE
The big finale of the Skoda Tour LuXembourg 2022.
The 45.18km part starts in Arsdorf and will cross a large part of the western part of Luxembourg to finish in Luxembourg city (Limpertsberg). The route to the finish will be a mix of flat and hilly. Before attacking the last kilometre (flamme rouge) the riders need to climb the famous Papeierbierg (825 m at 9%) in Luxembourg City.

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.
