From humble beginnings in 2011, the Taiwan KOM Challenge has risen to become Asia’s premier hill-climb event and has been graced by elite riders such as Vincenzo Nibali, Cadel Evans, Phil Gaimon and Emma Pooley. The event, hosted by the Taiwan Cyclist Federation and the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, is the jewel of Taiwan’s sporting scene and has become a ‘must do’ ride for riders worldwide. So sit on your trainer and explore the beautiful places on ROUVY!
Cadel Evans says about the race: "A magic climb up. For me, the fatigue and the altitude I found to be the biggest challenges. You're really riding up on the side of these precipices which is quite incredible. When I looked around and looked at the mountains, it's just like a scene out of a movie or something. It's so spectacular. Some of the scenery, the old temples, the waterfalls, the section with all the trees going over the road, like a natural awning covering the road, the vegetation itself is something I've only ever seen in Asian movies."
