This weekend I have highlighted some useful structured training sessions as well as some events that will be suitable for all.
Mt Fuji HC Dojo Series 2022 – Workout #8 – SPECIALITY – Yuma KOISHI (Team UKYO Sagamihara)
Those who are interested in structured training may be interested in this event. For English speakers, it’s advisable to sign up to Event B. This session has been created by Yuma Koishi from UKYO and is designed to help develop your climbing prowess.

AP Racing | Saturday Zone 2 Cruise
Andy Potts is a triathlete from the US who competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics. He’s also the 2007 Ironman 70.3 World Champion.
Andy is hosting a structured training session that is designed to work you in Zone 2 and occasionally Zone 3 elements. As the description notes these are “set for all skill levels and are ‘no drop’ events.” This is 65 minutes in duration.

Zwift Insider Rebel Race
The second race in the first-ever race series hosted by Zwift Insider! Full details can be read here.
There are three events spread over the weekend, two on Saturday and one on Sunday (GTM, at least), giving you the chance to race the “Rebel Routes” which have now made it into Zwift’s official list of courses.
This weekend’s event is hosted on Watopia’s new Eastern Eight route. It’s a bit longer than a typical race at 54.1km, with 412m of elevation gain. Fairly flat, but the Titans Grove KOM in both directions will prove a key selection point!

The HERD Sunday Endurance
This is a nice 2-hour ride on the new Eastern Eight course, which unlocks a jersey. Paced at 1.5-2 w/kg, this is a steady ride, which may be most welcome if you have spent the week training hard.

ZHCC Stay Together Sunday 1.5w/kg – 2.0w/kg
Another steady ride, this time for an hour in duration, hosted on the R.G.V. course in France. What attracted me to this event is that everyone “will stay together.” I think this is excellent because I have been helping a few people “learn the ropes” of Zwift and a group ride is ideal for new joiners to the platform and cycling.
