A nice assortment of rides to tackle this weekend, as well as a race to try.
This weekend event is the opportunity for Shimano to showcase their new groupset, DURA-ACE R9200. This was released in October 2021 and is their premium groupset offering.
Complete either route and you’ll unlock the Shimano S-Phyre jersey. One lucky finisher will unlock the Pinarello Dogma F with DURA-ACE in their Zwift garage for keeps.

Zwift Racing with Category Enforcement
If you want fair racing, then give one of this weekend’s many “Category Enforcement” races a go! The new Category Enforcement means you will be assigned the pen to start in, based on your previous results, so you will be racing people of similar ability, making the event competitive and fun.

Ride With Egan Bernal // INEOS Grenadiers Cycling Team
It gives me great pleasure to be highlighting this event. It feels like only yesterday when news filtered through about the horrific training accident that Egan was involved in earlier this year. I remember it clearly because at the time, INEOS were hosting their training camp on Zwift and Egan had led a live event just before his accident. Therefore, it’s fantastic news to have him back, starting on the road to recovery!
As Egan takes small steps, it would be nice to join and support him on his journey. As such, this event is designed to do just that and is paced at a gentle 1.0-2.4 w/kg and is hosted on the “Flat Route Reverse” route in Watopia. It lasts for 60 minutes.

Ride to End ALZ Spring Challenge
It’s always a pleasure to write about events that have a good cause underpinning them, and I am therefore keen to highlight the Ride to End ALZ® Spring Challenge — the Alzheimer’s Association cycling event that fights dementia.
This is a global event (taking place outdoors too) and it is encouraged that you register and if you feel inclined, donate.
