As we head into the end of the year, I decided to switch things up in my training and join the Zwift monthly ZRacing series. December theme is Race Like a Pro. The series features 4 weeks of racing and in each stage, racers will wear a different World Tour team kit for the race.
- Stage 1 (Dec 5 -11): Takes place on the London Loop Reverse route wearing the INEOS team kit. This route is 1 lap totaling in 9.3miles/15km with 755 ft/230m in elevation.
- Stage 2 (Dec 12-18): Richmond Rollercoaster 1 lap (17.1km, 138m elevation). Team kit: (Jumbo Visma)
- Stage 3 (Dec 19-25) : Takes place on R.G.V route which is 1 laps 15.5 mile/24.9km with 437 feet/107m of elevation. Team kit: Bike Exchange-Jayco.
- Stage 4 (Dec 26 – Jan 1): Takes place on the Three Little Sister route in Watopia. This race is a custom distance totaling 18.2 miles/29.12 km with 1,328 ft/405m in elevation. It takes you over the Hilly and Titans Grove KOMs before finishing at the top of the Volcano. Team kit: Movistar Team
This is Stage 3 of the Zwift Race Like a Pro series wearing the Bike Exchange-Jayco team kit. “R.G.V” stands for Route Grand Vitesse, or “high speed road” – a fitting name, since this route is definitely one for the sprinters. Though only 24km in length, it includes three timed sprint segments. The first 7.4 mile is pan flat. The second half has a small tiny climb at around mile 7.4, then a twisty rolling ride towards the end.
I missed Stage 1 so if you are looking for my results for Stage 1, you won’t find it, but you can watch Stage 2 here.
