Nathan Guerra of Zwift Community Live has announced he’ll be racing and live streaming the Zwift Classics each Wednesday at 7:10pm BST/2:10pm EST/11:10am PST on his Twitch channel. His aim is to attract top riders and teams to race in the same event each week.
Each Wednesday’s live stream will feature game interaction (racing!), discussion of bike selection and other tactics, and interviews with racers, directors, or guest hecklers.
He’ll also be keeping an eye on the overall GC contention for the Classics series, taking time to discuss who is doing well and why for both men and women.
Here’s Nathan streaming a Zwift Insider Rebel Race – check out his final attacks:
Top Racers, Top Racing
This is a prime-time race invitation for all top-level men and women A racers looking to jump in and challenge other top racers (Nathan is ranked in the top 50 racers worldwide as of right now). Looking to boost your ZwiftPower rankings? As stronger racers gather for this one event, points values will increase for each race!
Riders in lower categories are invited to jump in and watch the live stream while doing their own race, or to get tips and tricks on how to race their Classics event later in the week.
Long-term, Nathan plans to keep the “Wednesday Worlds” idea going even after the Zwift Classics wrap up. Each Wednesday he’ll be selecting a race to live stream, and he hopes other top racers will jump in and make the events extra interesting.
Guest Rider Opportunity
Nathan told me he’s interested in guest riding for different top esports teams each week. He’d love to race for other top teams while providing an inside look into their team culture, tactics, organization, and DS’ing.
His goal is to feature different teams each week, plugging himself in where it makes sense to help the team get the best result. He says it will be treated a bit like a Chase Race, though, since the GC contention is something he’s chasing. “Gloves are off for the win if we all come to the line!”
