Bringing an end to the Home of Cycling Series, Eurosport are offering a lucky fan the chance to ride in a Trek-Segafredo team car at this month's Vuelta a Espana

Working in collaboration with cycling app Strava, Eurosport are offering this chance to anybody who completes the International Ride Challenge. 

All you have to do to enter is the following;

Sign up to the Eurosport International Ride Challenge page on Strava and log a 30 kilometre ride in August. That is all you need to do. 

The winner will then be drawn at random and get the chance to take their VIP seat with Trek-Segafredo at a this year's Vuelta.

This challenge is, by far, the easiest of the whole series. July's Peaks Challenge asked riders to climb 5,500m of elevation over four weeks whilst June's 10th Rider Challenge had riders logging a 100km single ride. 

With the challenge only asking you to log one 30km ride, the chance to win this 'money-can't-buy' experience is really open to everyone.

The International Ride Challenge is part of Eurosport's search to find which nation rides the furthest. Taking the distance cycled by entrants from each nation partcipating compared to the country's population, Eurosport look to declare which country can claim they ride the longest.

Eurosport CEO Peter Hutton has noted the Home of Cycling Series for its success and hopes this free competition will keep growing. 

'260,000 people took part in the first two challenges and we are expecting many more to participate in this final event. The third is by far the easiest of the three challenges for fans to qualify for that memorable money-can’t-buy experience' said Hutton.

'We’ve teamed-up with Strava, the social network for athletes, and secured some amazing prizes for the lucky winners. Best of all, it is completely free to enter.'
