The passion has been unleashed and in just fifteen days more than 1,700 athletes have answered the call of the Orbea Indoor 500 Challenge. Our numbers and dedication are growing - we stay at home, but we continue with physical activity thanks to this Strava Club Challenge.




This is exciting! We are witnessing a movement of passionate people who open the doors of their homes to show us where they train. Some pedal to the rhythm of music; others attacking on the Tourmalet or competing on MTB race circuits thanks to the magic of interactive online training.

Some people compete on the terrace, in the storage room and even in the private gym while watching the snow falling outside. There are also those who share paella recipes and the glass of wine that awaits when getting off the rollers. We are having fun.



We invite you to join our Orbea club on Strava, where have already over 11,000 members. As a club member you will be able to participate in this great event.
