The Taiwan KOM Challenge is a 105km road race and one of the toughest one day cycling challenges. It starts at sea level and climbs pretty much all the way to Taiwan's highest paved road at 3,275m on Mount Wuling. The riders face altitude, changing weather conditions and test their own limits while experiencing the amazing scenery of Taroko Gorge and Wuling Pass along the way. They also have a chance to immerse themselves in the culture and vibrant atmosphere of Taiwan’s capital Taipei.
In 2018 600 sportive riders conquered the Taiwan KOM Challenge. The line-up included Team CCC’s Laurens ten Dam in the men’s category, while the women’s category boasted Mitchelton-Scott’s Lucy Kennedy among other pro riders and ambitious amateur riders facing a challenge like no other.
