Zwift TT Round 8 Graphic

Round 8 is on its way and we have a new route set out this week - Greatest London Flat. Thanks to 3R Triathlon Ireland again have our own race this week, so there will be plenty of spaces available across the three days!

With only three races left - check out the league results here. 

ROUND 8 ENTRY

Round 8 will take place Wednesday, Thursday & Friday in three separate races on the same course. Choose whichever day suits you best - it's the exact same course each day, and all performances will be collated in to one results sheet.

IMPORTANT - BEFORE YOU RACE

  • Before you race, make sure to change your PRIMARY Club on Zwift Power to Tri Ireland - without this we won't know to include you in our results. Please leave your primary team set to Tri Ireland for two hours after the race so we can collect results. (You can change it back afterwards). *Riders who do not have their team set to Tri Ireland will not be included in the results.*
  • You must have a heart rate monitor and power data to be included in each week's results - this is a requirement of Zwift Power and ensures fair competition.
  • You must at least have a Triathlon Ireland training licence to appear on the League Table.
  • Be ready to go at least half an hour before the race. Enter any Zwift course and you will see a pop up asking you to join the race - click on this and you can then warm up on the starting grid.

What's different this week?

We are very excited to have a Triathlon Ireland designated race, with three races that have plenty of room for everyone to race on a night of their choice! There will be a few changes this week that we want to let you know about before you get to the start line:
  • Everyone must be on a TT bike - you can change your type of bike in your 'Garage' once you log on to Zwift. Once you are in Zwift - select the menu button on the bottom left of your screen and then you will see the 'Garage' menu button on the right hand side of the screen.
  • There will not be start grids on the start line this week - everyone will start at the same time. This will not make a difference in the results of the TT. Drafting is not possible, as in our previous TTs.
  • All riders will be able to see each other on course - which adds to the excitement of the race! 
  • At out first week in 3R, some riders received some disqualification codes. Please see 3R event rules here. Those riders that receive a DQ / ZP the same as the first 3R race will be included in the results. If you have received a DQ/ ZP in any other Zwift TT series race, you will not be included. 

Greatest London Flat

A free ride of Greatest London Loop begins on the Classique route, but only covers a portion of it before turning onto the Greater London roads. You are then taken over the bridge, through the subway and into the “Richmond Park” countryside which was part of the January 2018 London expansion. The subway tunnels carry you back into London, over the bridge and through the start/finish banner.
