With what could well be a perfect series of events for those looking to sharpen their top end speed ahead of the PTO 2020 Championship at Challenge Daytona, the Z Pro Tri Races Series from Zwift will return on Wednesday 11th November for a three-week block of racing.

As proved earlier this year in the June Cup, these events could combine both excellent racing AND that eRacing could also be great viewing. And, we’ll be able to watch the action once again, the broadcasts hosted by Matt Lieto and Sarah True.

This time though – full details below – the action will be rapid, with an almost Super League Triathlon(esque) format, which will see the Pro Men and Pro Women race over three different formats, every week. Continuing to adapt, the addition of the non-drafting Individual Hill Climb TT is a new and welcome addition.

Not only that, but age-group athletes will be able to race over the same courses in a series of Community races.

Some new additions on the Pro athlete front too, with the likes of Holly Lawrence and Sebastian Kienle joining the mix, neither having been a part of the June Cup.



Tune in to watch pros battle it out in punchy 3-part races across 3 weeks and test your own legs in the community races

Zwift, the global online training platform, is bringing back the Z Pro Tri Race Series this November. Watch the pros over a 3 week race series starting on 11th November or participate in the community races, starting on November 6th, that let everyone experience the very same routes the pros will race.

The brand new 3-part race format will test the all round abilities of racers. Each week will include a Points Race, Scratch Race and an Individual Hill Climb TT. 

Triathlon fans will be able to tune in and watch the pro’s compete each week. Races will be broadcast with commentary provided by Matt Lieto and Sarah True. Want to join in the fun? Community races cover the same courses, so you can see how your times size up to the best in the world. More information on the Race Series including how to sign up or to watch can be found here

“This will be my first Z Pro Race Series after watching in June, I’m excited to jump in and see how hard these races are,” says Holly Lawrence, 2016 Ironman 70.3 World Champion. “The new quick fire formats look super tough but I think it will be fun to test a variety of skills in each race.” 

The start list for each race contains 20 of the biggest stars in the sport, in both short and long distance racing. Confirmed athletes include Teresa Adam, Holly Lawrence, Laura Philipp, Emma Pallant and Annabel Luxford. On the men’s side, Alistair Brownlee, Jonny Brownlee, Sebastian Kienle, Joe Skipper and Antony Costes. Community races start on 6 November. The pros go head to head starting on Wednesday 11 November.
