Spring Classics – Live?

Below is a post we prepared a while ago, hoping that Zwift will be able to support us and confirm dates for a 4week Spring series. Isolation and quarantine preventive measures gave us a good opportunity to train longer indoors this season.
At some point, it went quiet from the Zwift side. So we assumed it was not approved due to various reasons. I will not go into details but we did our best to get a mini-series in before the summer.

With that negative feeling, we moved on and started preparing for next season league.
But today I got an info that Slovenian event is live for this weekend. Really? Zwift didn’t confirm it, let me take a look. Yikes! It’s live and not the way we planned it. The schedule and planned stage are off…
Ah well. Let’s take it as it is. So, this weekend we have a race!

We will use Zwiftpower to organize results.

See you this weekend on Zwift and good luck!

As spring is penetrating into the northern hemisphere the sun is higher and stronger day by day. We have been entire winter riding indoor, trained hard and as we are extremely well prepared, we are also eager to enjoy and unleash that gained fitness outside on roads. Unfortunately, this year’s spring is very different for most European countries due to Coronavirus outbreak and many countries have employed strict quarantine, which means not only no events, no outside group rides, but even no solo outside rides on a free road in most countries. Stay home is an obligation for many, and demotivation, sadness, frustration coming from the inability to ride and socialize outside is just a natural response to that situation.

But, at least we have some sort of alternatives. Hard indoor group rides on Zwift are perfect for overcoming the current lack of outdoor activities and that’s why we have decided to organize a short serié of one-day races during April, which will most likely be locked down in most European countries.

We call these events Slovenian Zwift Spring Classics, and they are meant to be a bit longer and harder one-day races on a mixed course held on every Sunday during April @10:30. We will be aiming for 90-120min long races for stronger A and B groups and for 1h+ durations for C and D groups.

The general rules are simple: race hard, race fair, have fun and be nice.

Everyone is welcome!
