Royal City Grand Prix



Thursday, December 30th at 6:30, 7:00 & 7:30PM


The Royal City Grand Prix: The event will be 3 separate meet-ups. Make sure to RSVP for all 3. The first meet-up will be our "practice" session and serve as warm-up and recon. The second meet-up will be an individual time trial for "qualifying". The third and final meet-up will be a wave start race where wave selection is based on qualifying results. As always, all abilities can join just be prepared to go hard! 


Practice @ 6:30PM


Route: Watopia's "Hilly" https://zwiftinsider.com/watopia/

Distance: 1 Lap = 9.5km*.

Format: "Keep Everyone Together." The meet-up will be customized so that as long as you're pedaling we all stay together. Ride as easy or hard as you like to activate for qualifying.

Meet-up Finish: Blue Meet-Up Finish Banner. Each meet-up will finish at the Blue Meet-up Finish Banner.


Qualifying @ 7:00PM


Route: Watopia's "Hilly" https://zwiftinsider.com/watopia/

Distance: 1 Lap = 9.5km.

Format: "Individual Time Trial." You must select a time trial bike from your garage. Selecting a time trial bike eliminates drafting and the interaction between riders.

Race Finish: Blue Meet-Up Finish Banner. Each meet-up will finish at the Blue Meet-up Finish Banner. Race Results will be available upon crossing the banner (there will be no "late-join").
