Registrations for Season 2 of the world’s biggest cycling competition close at 23:59 UTC, November 2nd
Zwift Racing League, the biggest virtual cycling competition, saw 14,000 people compete in Season 1 2022. Registration for Season 2 is now open. Teams have until 11:59 pm UTC on November 2nd to register.
Zwift Racing League is a team-based competition held over a period of six weeks, with the winners crowned at the end of the competition. Zwift Racing League offers friendly competition for all abilities. Season 1 saw Zwifters compete across the full spectrum of categories; A+ (3.4 percent of registrants), A (24.7 percent), B (41.3 percent), C (24.3 percent), and C (6.1 percent).
Races alternate between Team Time Trials (TTT) and circuit races. For Team Time Trials, the result is taken from the fourth rider across the lines with points awarded based on finish time. Team Trial events now also benefit from Zwift’s new TTT functionality, allowing teams to warm up in the pens for a predetermined start time. In circuit races, points are awarded based on the finish position. Bonus points are also available via “First Across The Line” (FAL) or “Fastest Through The Segment” (FTS) primes, with points awarded to the top 10.
For those new to racing on Zwift, zRacing delivers racing on-demand with a very low barrier to entry. Racing each month is themed, with a different stage each week and multiple opportunities throughout the day to race.
Inclusive to athletes of all abilities, zRacing events have category enforcement, so racers compete against others of similar strength, creating a fair and equal environment of fun competition. zRacing is an excellent place for experienced racers to get in a mid-week race, or for beginners to try their hand at racing on Zwift. Races last 30 to 40 minutes, meaning you can warm up, race, and then cool down in less than an hour.
The monthly series also allows Zwifters the opportunity to earn additional perks in Zwift. Those who complete all stages of the monthly mission can earn a badge for completing all stages of the zRacing monthly series. Racers can also compete for the overall position in each month’s general classification standing on Zwiftpower.
Race Makuri will be the November's theme for zRacing. Previews of November's courses can be viewed here:
