Zwift’s monthly ZRacing series is now in its fourth round following September’s Get Rolling, October’s Race Like a Champ, and November’s Race Makuri. Each month has brought more and more racers out to compete for the monthly GC.
Today Zwift published event details of December’s ZRacing Series, where the theme is “Race Like a Pro”. Let’s dive into the details!
Race Like the Pros!
With Zwift’s Pro Training Camp now underway, this series gives us the chance to put our training to the test and race like the pros we are training with! December features 4 weeks of racing, and each week racers will wear a different World Tour team kit for the race. (No unlock – pro team kits are for the pros only.)
- Week 1: INEOS
- Week 2: Jumbo Visma
- Week 3: Bike Exchange
- Week 4: Movistar Team

The ZRacing series consists of monthly sets of weekly races. Each race is scheduled for seven days (beginning 1:10am UTC on Monday and running through to the next Sunday). Timeslots are consistent week to week and month to month.
Races are scheduled ~15 times each day, so there are plenty of available times to find a race.
Monthly GC on ZwiftPower
Each monthly set of races has a time-based GC (general classification) which tracks riders’ best finishing times for each week’s race. The overall winners in each category for the month will be the riders with the lowest overall time for that month’s set of races.
With over 100 weekly timeslots available, riders can race each week’s event multiple times and try to better their finishing time.
Note: you must use a heart rate monitor and be on a smart trainer, smart bike, or power meter to show up in ZwiftPower results for this series.

Get the Badge
Each month’s series has its own achievement badge which you can unlock by finishing every stage for the month.
One and Done
Zwift has planned these events around the idea of a solid 1-hour workout. So each race should only take around 1 hour to complete, including your warmup and cooldown.
