This week I selected a range of different events to highlight, for a range of different reasons. This really is an “eclectic mix” to pick from.
🥇 SNOW Sprint Series
This is the first time I’ve noticed this event organiser, then I looked closely at the stylised writing which reads “Barely Established.” But on closer inspection, I don’t think this series is “Barely Established” as in the event description it notes ‘SNOW Sprint Series Season 5’!
Anyway, this event is a 16.2km sprint competition on the “Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds” course. Points are awarded for your segment times on each timed segment (sprints and KOMs), and finishing order doesn’t matter.

🤝 LEQP Provence Badge Hunter Series
The L’Equipe Provence rides are always fun and well-led, and their niche is simple – Zwift badge hunting. This weekend, they are targeting the 100km badge on the “Tempus Fugit” course. The unique feature about this ride as it will be done using handcycles!
This is the first group ride I have seen using handcycles as the default bike, giving me another reason to highlight this event.

🥇 LA CREPA by Scannellatori
With 25,000 followers on Instagram, I am ashamed to say that I didn’t know about this group. But I do now and have subsequently followed them! They have a great logo and what looks like a fun Zwift race to go with it.
The race is a 15.5km event hosted on the “LaGuardia Loop” in New York. Expect this to be a frantic race on an undulating course.

🥇 Mountain Massif – The Race
I am highlighting my Saturday race because for the last several weeks, attendance at my “Structured Training workouts” has surpassed my expectations. Therefore, I would like to encourage those that have been honing their climbing skills to test their legs in this Saturday event!
It is a race on the “Climber’s Gambit” route in Watopia. This event provides a brilliant workout while not being too long in both distance and duration, leaving you with the rest of the day free to enjoy.
