Zwift’s Z Pro Race series 2020 is back on!
The November series will be a 3-week race series starting on 11th November. Swift users can also choose to participate in the community races, starting on November 6th.
Here is the link to the community race schedule that you can sign up for.
You don’t have to do all the races. You can choose to do one, two, or all of them! It’s completely up to you. However, doing all three gives you the full Z PRO experience.
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.
The star participants
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.
Broadcasting events too!
Only the pro races will be broadcast, but there will be a segment during the main broadcast that highlights standout performances from the community races.
