The DKWTS competition is made up of 3 “Tours” (main challenges). Each Tour consists of 3 “Stages” (weeks) plus a “Bonus” stage at the end for a total of 10 weeks.
TOUR CHALLENGES: Each Tour Challenge is based on a rider’s progress for the duration of the 3-week period and points will be awarded at the conclusion of the Tour based on rider placing.
1. Resolution Kitten (Time Challenge)
2. Adventure Kitten (Distance Challenge)
3. Kitten Crusher (Elevation Challenge)
4. Bonus Challenge (TBA)
STAGE CHALLENGES: Stage Challenges are weekly challenges that give riders the opportunity to earn points. Some stages are competitive (i.e. Longest ride of the week) and points will be awarded to the Top 5 in each category and field. Other stages are non-competitive (i.e. Do a ride on 5 different days this week) and points will be awarded to all that complete the challenge. NOTE: In the interest of fairness, some of the competitive challenges will have separate scoring for virtual and outdoor rides.
BONUS & POP-UP CHALLENGES: Bonus & “Pop-Up” Challenges will be announced throughout the competition as fun ways to earn additional points and interact with other competitors. Bonus Challenges will be announced at the beginning of each stage. “Pop-Up” Challenges are surprise challenges announced during a stage.
