[Source: British Cycling] The British Cycling Race Series – an eight-week series of races and workouts on popular online training platform Zwift – has been designed for people to have fun and stay active during the global uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic.
Those wanting to pit their form against the best of British won’t have long to wait as group rides led by the Great Britain Cycling Team, including with women’s academy squad Team Breeze, are set to be introduced.
Great Britain Cycling Team women’s endurance academy coach, Emma Trott, said: “We’re in an entirely unique situation that means there’ll be no racing for a while, but it’s important that we try to find some sense of normality in all this. For us, that’s training and staying connected not just with each other, but the cycling community.
“Moving things online is a really fun way of keeping that connection and we’re all looking forward to people joining us over the next few weeks.”
All races are 30 minutes long and will be hosted on different courses, running from 24 March to 14 May.
