Zwift Academy 2023 – Race #1: Rolling Highlands

Late to the party, today I took part in my first of the two required Races for the Zwift Academy 2023. I opted for race one, but both are available.

The route was practically flat. 103m elevation over 20.8km. Three laps, each of which sees the first half with almost no movement. The second half is where the fun … Read more
