Team Challenge Night

Take on the ultimate team challenge here in The Njinga Lab on Wednesday 28th March at 20h00. 

As part of our Spring Classics series we will be hosting a Team Challenge Event where team tactics, camaraderie and team spirit will all play a vital part as each team goes for victory. Join the Njinga community for a fun packed hour in The Lab for 4 very different challenges on the wattbikes.

Sign up NOW.

On the night everyone entered will be fairly divided into teams of 3, each with a designated team manager. There will be 4 challenges on the night for each team to complete...2 individual challenges and 2 team challenges. Find out what each challenge involves below:

1. Peak Power Challenge

This challenge is simple...What peak power can you achieve in just 6 seconds?

Every team member will have 1 attempt at the 6 second peak power test, with each team member's peak power scores combinded and the total team score recorded. Points will then be added to the running totals for the evening based on the number of teams participating. For example if there are 10 teams, the team with the highest total peak power will earn 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, 3rd = 8th points etc. 

2. Average Power Challenge

What average power can you achieve in 3 minutes?

The 2nd challenge of the evening will involve one rider from each team riding for 3 minutes to achieve their highest average power for the segment. Each rider can use any gear and cadence that they like to achieve their highest average power. Points based on the average power results will then be allocated to the running totals for the evening based on the same points allocation outlined in challenge 1. 

3. Power to Weight Challenge

Who will be your team's Mountain Goat?

The final individual challenge will see the last team member take on a power to weight challenge over a 5 minute Mountain Goat segment. This team member will complete 4 minutes on the Mountain Goat gears before a final 1 minute sprint to the finish line. The average power for the challenge will be recorded and power to weight scores then calculated to determine the challenge winner. Points will be allocated based on these power to weight scores as outlined in the above 2 challenges. 

4. Team Time Trial

The evening will finish with the ultimate team challenge...The Team Time Trial.

The rules are simple: 1 bike per team of 3, with each team member riding at least once in the 20 minutes. The team that cycles the furthest in that 20 minutes will be the winners. The distances completed in the 20 minutes will be recorded and points allocated as outlined in the challenges above. 

With a handicap system in place for the team time trial...every team stands a chance of winning the final challenge of the evening. Swift changeovers, team tactics and plenty of cheering is expected as the atmosphere intensifies in The Lab. 

Please note no rider is permitted to do more than 1 of the individual challenges.


The winning team on the night will receive a bottle of prosecco each and also 5 bonus points towards the Njinga World Championships.

Everyone that takes part on the night will also receive 1 Njinga World Championship point towards their running total.
