Round 1 Live Streamed on Facebook

The Cycling Ireland Zwift League returns this Saturday for the first of eight rounds. The 2020/21 edition of the series features a mix of scratch and points races adding to the intensity and unpredictability of the racing.

Round 1 starts with a 24-kilometer scratch race on the France R.G.V course to ease participants into the league. For Round 2 we step it up a level with a 27.3km cobbled classic featuring two King of the Mountains primes before the sprint for the line which offers double points.

A new category has been added to the league with A’s and A+ separated in the standings. A and A+ will start together at 10am followed by B, C and D category riders at one-minute intervals. The top 50 male and female riders in each category will be awarded points from the round and your best 7 results will count in the overall standings.

Members holding a 2020 or 2021 membership will feature in the male and female league standings and will battle for the Spin11 Champions Jersey. League standings will factor into qualification for any eRacing National Championships should they take place in 2021.

The first round of the league will be live streamed on Cycling Ireland Facebook with commentary by Declan Quigley.

To help you prepare for the Cycling Ireland Zwift League, Cycling Ireland is offering a series of group workouts on Tuesdays at 7pm. Register on the Zwift Companion App to build your fitness and hone those all-important Zwifting skills.
