New race series aims to showcase the very best Junior & U24 riders amid a second season of cancelled races
Zwift, the online global fitness platform, is to play host to the Lost Generation TRINITY Racing Series, starting on June 17th.
The Lost Generation TRINITY Racing Series is a new racing league designed to help provide young riders the opportunity to showcase their talents and take the next step in their cycling careers.
While we have been enjoying the return of the UCI World Tour and UCI WorldWomen’s races, U24 and Junior races continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with a large number of high-profile races being cancelled in 2020 and 2021.
Running over four weeks, The Lost Generation TRINITY Racing Series is made up of five one-day races and a five-day stage race in week four. Open to U24 & Junior Boys and Girls, the series is designed to provide a stage for this young generation to showcase their talents and secure professional contracts as they take the next step up in their careers to senior level.
As the series is focused on developing young riders, the series aims to replicate the training load of a young professional rider. In order to qualify for prizes, riders will be required to complete training sessions in the morning before each race.
“This is an incredibly important time in the life of a young rider who has the aspiration to turn professional”, says Ian Stannard, TRINITY Racing Sports Director. “Unfortunately young riders continue to be impacted by the pandemic with high profile races being cancelled for a second year running, limiting their chances to be spotted by professional teams. Working in partnership with Zwift, we want to be able to provide a stage for all young riders to shine and ultimately achieve their dreams.”
