Last Saturday’s Tiny Races were quite a mix of punchy climbs, downhills, and flats. Each race suited a different type of rider, so it took a combination of fitness, smarts, and consistency to come out on top.

This Week’s Routes
This week we’re going all-in on Watopia, with four fresh routes that have never been seen in the Tiny Races.
Here are photos so you can see the precise location of the custom finish lines:
- Race 1: Volcano Flat Reverse (5.5km, ending atop Dirty Sorpressa)
- Race 2: Mountain Route (5.27km, ending at first bridge tower)
- Here’s one for the punchy climbers. Your lead in is fairly tame, but this race ends in an all-out, 700-meter slugfest up the foot of the Epic KOM to the first bridge tower.
- Powerup: none
- Race 3: Seaside Sprint (5.676km, ends at Volcano Circuit arch)
- This one is a bit of a roller coaster, starting on The Esses, down across the JWB sprint reverse, down the Dirty Sorpressa, then finishing inside the Volcano on one of Zwift’s most technical and challenging finishes. Lots of aero boost powerups will keep this fast and encourage attacks.
- Powerup: Aero Boost x2
- Race 4: Tempus Fugit (6.17km)
- Tempus Fugit is the flattest route on Zwift, so we wanted to give it a try and create the flattest Tiny Race to date. This race ends with a bit of a “blind finish” as you exit the twisty tunnel leading from the Oasis.
- Powerup: Draft Boost
Join a Chat & Chill Cooldown Event
Immediately following each hour’s racing, we’ve scheduled 30-minute “Chat & Chill” events where riders from all categories can spin out their legs together and have some fun chatting about how it all went down. Find them at zwift.com/events/tag/tinyraces.
Zwift displays preliminary race results in game when you cross the line, but points are computed after all four races finish, with final results on ZwiftPower. (We have to press a ZwiftPower button to compute results manually, so if your rankings don’t show up right away, just be patient.)
Riders will earn points based on finish position in each of the 4 Tiny Races. The category winner of each week’s series is the rider with the most points across their timezone’s 4 races. Here are the links for each timezone’s results on ZwiftPower:
