The series is five races, five different courses. For five Wednesday's in a row, starting November 24th, 2021. The race start time is 8pm (mst). There is also a 6:30am Thursday make up race offered every week. Please read the technology section below on more details about start times. You need to register on this page for the season pass option. Each race will be on a different style course. Individual course information is in the course section below. You must be on Zwift. You must have the Zwift Companion App. You must wear a heart rate strap. Check the technology and cheaters section for more information on that.
Technology and Must Have's
In order to register and compete in the races, you must have a Zwift setup. Bicycling Magazine has a nice piece on getting setup with Zwift, you can click that here. Also, I'm happy to be a resource. My contact is email@example.com. Beyond the general Zwift setup, you also must wear a heart rate strap to compete in this series. The next steps are to follow "Shaun Radley MTCX" on the Zwift Companion App on your phone (download this app if you don't have it already). This is how you get invited to the Zwift Meetup or in our case the individual races. Once you have followed me, I will first make sure you've registered on this page and then I will officially invite you to the races through Zwift Companion. This is the most important step and actually gets you on the ride. On race day, you want to login to Zwift at least 20 minutes prior, so 7:40 pm. Then you want to physically enter and ride in a world. Ideally, the world you ride in is the one that contains our course for that day (for example if the course is "Watopia Waistband" then you should ride in "Watopia" before the race). At some point, anywhere from 2-20 minutes before the start, you will get a message that asks if you want to join the Meetup. Just click "Join." Your avatar will move to the starting pen for the course with all the other registered racers. There is a ticker counting down till the ride start. This is the ticker till when the race starts.
Facebook LIve & Discord Audio
I will stream the live on Facebook so you can watch it back. I'll also run a discord channel for the race which is an audio feed with general announcements at the beginning.
Below are some guidelines on which category to register for. All the races will start on "one gun." With all categories being together and racing together in one group (keep this in mind for your strategy). The category results will be posted in the results spreadsheet post-race. For this series we will use the Zwift and Zwift Power Categories for watts per kg of current body weight. Use your Zwift category or current ftp test please. If you need help let me know.
A: 4+ W/kg.
B: 3.9-3.2 W/kg.
C: 3.1-2.5 W/kg.
D: 2.4-1 W/kg.
Rules and Doping
- If you'd like to trainer dope, dope in general, or worry about others doping then this is probably not the event for you. I can spot folks who aren't being realistic and take it up with them one on one. That said I do not have a sure-fire system of knocking out dopers or anything like. Please be realistic with body weight and trainer calibration. I will be double checking folks on their watts per kg compared to their Zwift and Zwift Power profiles.
- Zwift bike and wheel selection can be a big deal, especially for hilly courses. There will no requirements on specifics bikes needed.
- For the races, change your profile name to have your category at the end. For Example "Shaun Radley - A." This will allow for racers to know who they are up against in terms of categories.
The results will be posted HERE. I will be using the Zwift Companion App Race Results feature for overall results.
- Zwift sweatband for anyone who finishes all 5 races.
- MTCX $50 gift card to the overall winners of each category.
