vELO Races Week Three

The ZwiftRacing vELO Races continue next Tuesday in 3 time zones (Atlantic, EMEA and US West). These events use the vELO result-based categorization system which offers a more dynamic and fun racing experience in ALL 10 categories.

Race 1 was 6 laps of Makuri's Neokyo Crit course which saw the sprinters reign supreme.

Race 2 faced the steep and long climbs of Greatest London Loop where climbers shined.

Race 3 will give the Puncheurs among us a chance at glory on Watopia's Ocean Lava Cliffside Loop route. Can they up the tempo on the flat to gap the climbers? Can they push the pace hard enough on the short climb to drop the sprinters?

Come and join us! Links in the Upcoming Races panel!
