Well, you didn’t expect us to go home and sit on our hands, did you? For those who got used to the abundance of road and track racing we’ve had in the last few months (crits on Tuesdays and Thursdays, track on Fridays, Super Series most weekends, etc!) the suddenness of this new lockdown measure has come as a bit of a shock to the system. Never fear, we’ve got some E-racing to keep you going!
If you’re familiar with Zwift’s E-racing platform, this will be easy to get in and out of. All you’ll need is the links below to get into each race meet, and you’ll select a grade to race. There is a separate link for each Men’s race and Women’s race, with different grading ranges for W/kg.
Comfy on Zwift but never tried a race? Here’s a useful guide from the big Z to get you up and running! It goes through everything from getting set up, making sure you warm up, how to pick your grade, how drafting works on Zwift, and some pointers for when to go. Zwift’s E-racing platform is a little bit like racing in real life, but it’s also a whole lot different.
If you’re new to Zwift, here’s a guide to everything you’ll need to know to get set up.
