Zwift has just announced a series of events next week in partnership with Scott. “Scott Week” is a celebration of all things cycling, with events focused on road, tri (TT), and mountain disciplines.
This isn’t a race series. Rather, it’s a series of group rides hosted by pro riders from each cycling discipline. The week ends with an exhibition race on Crit City between 3-person teams of Scott pro riders (see below for details).
Take on any of the available events, whether it’s a group ride or group workout, and you’ll unlock the stylish in-game SCOTT Kit.
Celebration Group Ride
Scott Week begins with the “Celebration Group Ride” on Sunday. This ride will be over one lap of London’s Triple Loops route (40.8km/25.4 miles, 544 meters/1785′ elevation). This ride includes three categories to choose from.
This is the only open event of Scott Week which has a finish line, so expect many riders to treat it as a race even though it’s classified as a group ride.
Stage 1 (Road)
Group rides are 60 minutes long on the Innsbruckring route. Cyclists from the Mitchelton-Scott Men’s and Women’s World Tour teams will join Zwifters on these group rides – see each event for details.
This stage’s group workout is inspired by Esteban Chavez. It is a high-intensity workout which works on VO2 max power. Esteban uses this session to accumulate time at VO2 max power before entering a block of racing. This is a good session to work on FTP power. The workouts are 55 minutes long on Watopia’s Waistband – see workout details in the Companion app.
All riders will be on Scott Foil aero road bikes.
Stage 2 (Tri)
Group rides are 60 minutes long on the 2019 UCI Worlds Harrogate Circuit route.
This stage’s group workout is from professional SCOTT triathlete Alistair Brownlee, and is ~60 minutes long on Watopia’s Tick Tock route. This ‘hour of pain’ group workout is the ultimate indoor training session to be completed in an hour. See workout details in the Companion app.
All riders will be on Scott Plasma TT bikes.
Stage 3 (MTB)
Group rides are 60 minutes long on Watopia’s Road to Ruins route, and will be hosted by pro riders from the SCOTT-SRAM team.
This stage’s group workout is from UCI Cross Country Mountain Bike World Champion Nino Schurter, and the workouts are 60 minutes long on Watopia’s Jungle Circuit route. See workout details in the Companion app.
All riders will be on Scott Spark mountain bikes.
Scott Week ends on Sunday June 28th with an invite-only exhibition race featuring pro Scott athletes from road, mountain bike, and triathlon.
The race will be streamed on GCN, GMBN and GTN. Each team will consist of three athletes, one from each discipline, and include both genders. The race is over 12 laps of Crit City, with points being awarded to the top five finishers in each lap (for both men and women) as well as for the first five to cross the finish line. The team with the most points wins.
