On the heels of Sunday’s successful “Homage Gravel Ride” (watch Shane Miller’s ride video) which saw over 1300 Zwifters hit the Jungle with 30 of Mitchelton-SCOTT’s pro men and women, the team has announced a slate of 16 more events.
The Bike Exchange “Where the World Rides” series is being organized by Mitchelton-SCOTT because the team has pulled out of upcoming races due to COVID-19 concerns. The series “is aimed at keeping riders and team staff stimulated during the non-racing period, as well as providing a unique opportunity for cycling fans to ride and interact with their favourite stars.”
The events haven’t yet been added to Zwift’s official calendar, but we expect them to show up soon! Here’s the schedule:
Wondering what each event above entails? Here’s what Mitchelton-SCOTT says about each type of event (which isn’t much). We may update this page as more info becomes available, but you will want to read the details of each event once they’re available on Zwift’s calendar.
A number of the events will be streamed live by Zwift and on the Mitchelton-SCOTT Facebook page.
Pace and Race
2018 Vuelta a Espana winner Simon Yates and double New Zealand time trial champion Georgia Williams will lead two ‘pace and race’ specific rides.

Mountain Goat Challenge
Australian road race champion Amanda Spratt and recent Vuelta a Andalucia stage winner Jack Haig will lead these rides.
