Zwift 2022 was created by Luke GJ Potter
Following on from last years Zwift 2021 thread, where we seen lots of riders have success in the WTRL TTT event and the CyclingIreland eRacing League.

No one wants to go back on the Turbo Trainer after the long Covid Lockdowns, but alas it's an inevitability due shortening daylight hours. Plus, there'll be the storms in February.

Links
ZwiftPower Teams: Cycling Ireland , Team RWB and Orwell Wheelers .
You can join multiple teams, and set a default one.

Zwift Event Tags: #CyclingIreland and #RidingWithoutBorders (formally Team IRL).
RWB and CI have events for every day of the week.

I'm only allowed to put so many links in a forum post, so you'll have to manually search Facebook for these Groups:
CyclingIreland Virtual Community, RWB Ireland, Zwift Racers and Zwift Riders.

Also search out the following Resources:
  • WTRL TTT: The biggest Team Time Trial weekly league, try to meet people on the RideWithoutBorders Team to get on a team.
  • WTRL ZRL: The biggest weekly team racing league, again RideWithoutBorders is the best place to source a team.
  • ZwiftHub: For the Completionists, you can track your Route Badges.
  • ZwiftInsider: For all the latest news.

Zwift Academy Road 2021

Details: Zwift Academy Road 2021

Zwift are starting their annual community building and Talent Search.
You can see last year's Zwift Academy Jay Vine currently tearing up the Vuelta for Alpecin-Fenix.

This year the Zwift Academy consists of ten checkpoints.
You'll need to start and finish with the Baseline Ride, these are filed under Group Rides.
Then there's a block of three workouts, a group ride/race to do, another three workouts and a final group ride/race.
You'll use the Baseline ride at the end to gauge how much you improved.

The Signup ends at: September 27, 2021, by 9:59am UTC.
The Academy Period is: August 30, 2021, 3:00pm UTC to October 25th 2021, 9:59pm UTC.
There's additional requirements if you're trying to go Pro.

WTRL Zwift Racing League

Update: The "Register your interest" link to be allocated a team in the RWB stable is live:
Part of the message is hidden for the guests. Please log in or register to see it.


Details: Zwift Racing League .
Join the Facebook Group for all the meltdowns and accusations: WTRL Zwift Racing League .
For the fastest equipment choices, check the ZwiftInsider Speed Tests spreadsheet.

The next season of the WTRL Zwift Racing League is almost upon us. Races are on Tuesdays. They're private events on Zwift, and due to the divisional structure, there's a max of 120 riders in the race.

Team Sign-up period: September 1st 2021 - September 25th 3pm UTC.
League period: September 28th - November 16th
Play-off period: November 23rd and 28th.

It's currently Team formation time. I'm also awaiting the release of the rules to see about Roster Size, so a team might only be able to use 10 riders during the season.

The next season will probably start in mid-January, and maybe a March/April season.

To find a team, you can search Facebook for:
  • Team RWB Cat A Racers
  • Team RWB Cat B Racers
  • Team RWB Cat C Racers
  • Team RWB Cat D Racers
If you want to be Captain of a team, you can search Facebook for the "Team RWB - ZRL Team Manager & Captains" group, so you can trade additional riders and source replacements for subs.

This is one of the most involved setups. The most involved setup is the WTRL TTT League.
You'll need a WTRL account, stable Zwift Game Client (if your game crashes, you are a DNF, you team needs 4 riders to finish to score points), a Smart Trainer/Power Meter (no ZPower), a Heart Rate Monitor (you receive half points for no HRM).
For the Team Time Trial Rounds, you'll need a way to communicate with your team to say that you're pulling off, so this is usually a Discord Voice Call, and maybe a headset with a mic.
If your team is selected for an audit, then you'll need a weight, scale, full length mirror, a way to dual record.
