Next weekend a Rapha-powered series launches on the biggest climbs in Zwift. Three rides in three days, with 9881′ (3012 meters) of elevation gain. Are you up for it?
Along the way you’ll unlock the Rapha Rising kit, and there’s also a GC competition on ZwiftPower. Expect a big turnout, as last year thousands signed up for each stage!
Categories, General Classification, and More
These events use the standard ZwiftPower categories based on rider FTP:
- A: 4+ w/kg
- B: 3.2 w/kg
- C: 2.5 w/kg
- D: below 2.5 w/kg
There is also an “E” category for women only.
These are doubledraft events with staggered starts, so categories will not be mixing.
Although these are classified as rides, not races (so no ZwiftPower ranking points) a General Classification has been set up on ZwiftPower to rank riders across all three stages based on the cumulative stage times. Riders who are registered on ZwiftPower will be listed in the overall GC for the series.
