Bologna’s tough climb launched a dramatic breakaway in Stage 4 of the Tour de Zwift Pro-Am. Men from 22 teams took to the start, including pro teams Canyon DHB, Hagens Berman Axeon, Ribble Weldtite, and Virtus. Two laps of the course included two ascents of its steep hill, finishing at the top. Racers earned points for their teams according to their positions at the top of the first climb and the finish line.

Scottie Weiss of team Cryo-Gen attacked the first hill at a brutal pace. He had been disqualified in Stage 2 because, as stated by Zwift, his “performance could not be verified with outdoor or test data.” He was allowed to race again using different equipment, and he rode like a fire had been lit under him. Only Virtus’ Christopher McGlinchey joined him out front. Could they stay ahead? Would their teams beat the previous winners, Canyon ZCC?

Hosts OJ Borg and Hannah Walker set the stage for the race, and Hannah joins Nathan Guerra to provide commentary. Before it starts, you’ll also see the inspiring story of Zwift racer and community leader Rachael Elliott.
