Zwift steps up Pro triathlete virtual racing in June

With real world racing obviously absent in recent months – and for who knows how much longer – the Z Pro Tri Race Series from Zwift has made surprisingly good viewing, while also providing a racing outlet for many Pro triathletes.

Significant progress has been made through the series to date with respect to validating results, power protocols and weigh-ins etc, and that has been reflected in some very close and competitive racing.

The Z Pro Series will take another step forward in June, with a 4 week invitational series, with the general classification covering all of those events – while also boasting a very impressive set of athletes taking part. It starts next Wednesday (10th June) – here are the details.

Tune in to watch 4 races over 4 weeks as the pros battle it out for the general classification win

Zwift, the global online training platform, is introducing the Z PRO June Invitational. This is a 4 week series where each rider chases the general classification over 4 races during the month of June. Tune in from Wednesday 10 June at 1900 BST to watch here.

The series begins with the Figure 8 route in Watopia with a distance of 29.8km and 234m elevation. There will be mid race points available for the first five to the top on the KOM Reverse and KOM. The second race returns to Crit City with 16 laps of the Bell Lap covering a total of 30.4km and 128m. Points will be available to the first five completing each lap. The third race takes place in Innsbruck with 4 laps of Innsbrucking. A total distance of 35.2km and 288m, points are available at the Sprint banner on Lap 2 for the first 5 riders to pass this point. The final race will be the Tour of Fire and Ice in Watopia with a total distance of 25.5km and 1161m elevation.

“The ZPRO Tri Race series has been a great success,” says Eric Min, CEO & Co-Founder of Zwift. “I’m excited to see how the athletes take to the 4 week race series and which pro is best over such diverse terrain.”

“The ZPRO Tri Race series has been a great outlet to get in some real racing,” says Lucy Charles-Barclay. “I’m really looking forward to the June Invitational, it will be hard racing but I’m excited to go up against the other women and leave it all out there on the bike.”

The start list for each race contains 30 of the biggest stars in the sport, in both short and long distance racing. Confirmed athletes include Lucy Charles-Barclay, Sophie Coldwell, Flora Duffy, Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown. On the men’s side, Kristian Blummenfelt, Terenzo Bozzone, Alistair Brownlee, Braden Currie, Gustav Iden and Lionel Sanders are all confirmed to race. Watch the action here.
