Zwift has worked together with Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka for a few years now. In fact, one of the lesser-known secrets of Zwift is that you can donate $25 to Qhubeka Charity to unlock the in-game Team DiData kit, or $100 to unlock the Qhubeka Bicycle (a yellow Buffalo bike)? (More info here.) As far as I know, this is the only “give cash to unlock kit” arrangement” Zwifters have ever had access to, and it’s been available for a few years now. Certainly a worthy cause–read more on what Qhubeka is all about here.
The Zwift “Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka Workout Series” has just been announced, running from April 24th-August 5th.
Coaches from Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka have designed a set of Zwift Group Workouts which include a mix of intensities to suit riders at any stage of their season. Zwift says:
For those entering their winter or off-season period, endurance workouts help you be stronger for longer. If you’re sharpening your form for the racing season or a targeted event, the threshold and race simulation sessions will push you to your upper limits. There is also a selection of strength sessions to build your muscular endurance.
There have been one or two workouts per day on the calendar thus far, at varying times.
Throughout the year, Team Dimension Data World Tour and U23 Continental Team members will occasionally drop into sessions.
