Middle - 4 tiles

It is advisable to find the route first on the website where you can properly explore virtual routes by using a detailed search. Then proceed to the app, download your chosen video once back in the app (720px is adequate), or stream it if you have a good Wi-Fi connection.

You will find the Training and Time Trial button between the top and bottom tiles. There you can choose the mode you want to use in your session. 

NB* We highly recommend the Time trial mode if you want to appear on Route records or get credit for challenges. You are required to complete all your challenges in race or Time Trial mode
