Wahoo Shred Sessions Announced

Wahoo Shred Sessions Announced

A new MTB-focused group ride series has been announced for Zwifters, complete with a star-studded cast of ride leaders. Dubbed the “Wahoo Shred Sessions”, these group rides take place twice a week, with each ride hosted by one or more big names in the world of off-road.

“With trails closed in many places, or too crowded to allow safe riding, we wanted to give mountain bike athletes the chance to ride together and socialize in a safe environment,” says Colin Eustace, Vice President of Global Marketing for Wahoo. “For many mountain bikers, this is a special opportunity to ride with some of the sport’s biggest stars — the kind of interaction that would be singular and memorable, with or without a global pandemic.”

Schedule

Rides are scheduled for three different time slots each Wednesday and Saturday through May 30th:

  • 2 am PDT/11 pm CET
  • 10 am PDT/7 pm CET
  • 5 pm PDT/2am CET Thursday/Sunday

Routes + Bike Recommendations

Specialized Epic S-Works – a solid choice for the Jungle!

Shred Sessions are held on Jungle-centric routes which rotate each week. Those routes are: Jungle Circuit (week 1), Road to Ruins (week 2), Jungle Circuit Reverse (week 3), and Dust in the Wind (week 4).

The Jungle Circuit routes are best ridden on a MTB, but Road to Ruins and Dust In the Wind may call for a bike swap once riders hit the jungle – it’s up to you to decide! Read about bike performance on the Road to Ruins route >

Ride Hosts

Currently-scheduled ride hosts include Hans Becking & Leon Van Bon, Greg Callaghan, Troy Brosnan, Ben Cathro & Rab Wardell, Norco Factory Gravity Team, Keegan Wright, Iago Garay, Richie Rude & Shawn Neer, Miranda Miller, Jesse Melamed, Andreanne Lanthier Nadeau, Nathalie Schneitter & Jenn Jackson, Norco Factory XC Team, Andreane Lanthier Nadeau, Damien Oton & Christian Textor, Jesse Melamed & Remi Gauvin, Josh Carlson, Isabeau Courdurier, Brook Macdonald & Sam Blenkinsop, Junya Nagata & Yuki Kushima, Morgane Charre, Emilie Siegenthaler & Pivot Team, and Sam Hill.

The start times are unfortunate for those of us who like to ride early in the morning. The kit is cool enough to make me operate outside of my comfort zone…

Will they open up the Alpe downhill mtn bike track for this? That’s the only thing I can imagine they are building there with those roadwork barriers.

I can’t see these on the events page on Zwift, and it won’t let me join from the Zwift page on link above either. Anyone else finding it hard to join one of these sessions?
