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.

“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.
