10/13 | Seaside Sprint

A pretty flat and small loop. The lead in has the Esses which can be a challenge so you'll want to be warm at the start. Prediction: bunch sprint. Primes are laps 2 & 4. The first lap after lead in counts toward lap count

10/20 | Waistband

This is a combination of the 3 flattest courses in Watopia making for a nice power display. Prediction: the nights winner will be the sprint winner that also finishes in the top 3 in the finish sprint.

10/27 | Libby Hill After Party

TBH: I've never raced or ridden it. A little known, event only course in the spectacular racing grounds of Richmond. Richmond big rollers followed with a climb. Really looking forward to this!!!

11/03 | Mighty Metropolitan

It's a beast with several power climbs. Maybe not a pure climbers night but certainly not flat! No bunch sprint and I expect there to be a shatter peloton with riders fighting it out in small groups. https://zwift.com/news/13350-race-recon-mighty-metropolitan?utm_source=ericschlange&utm_campaign=zwift_cycling_affiliate_ericschlange_apr19&utm_medium=affiliate

11/10 | Classique (London)

The roads of London interior are pretty flat but this course just seems to grind you down. With a Sprint mid way through the race the pace should be high. Still a bunch sprint prediction ... could someone go from the last corner?

London Sprint Forward (lap 2 so including the lead-in it will be the 3rd time you cross the sprint line/finish banner)

11/17 | Sand & Sequoias

Flat with a power climb. So let's make this interesting for the climbers, a prime on the climb each lap with the Titans Grove Forward sprint. Is that enough to blow the peloton? Not sure but I will bet on a reduced group making the finish line.

11/24 | Fan Flat - Richmond

If you like flat and fast this is your night. Bunch sprint is guaranteed but who goes early and what tactic wins is the question. The night boucl be decided on the prime which is lap 3.

12/01 | Innsbruckring

Some people say that Innsbruckring is a mostly flat course with a power climb. That's true but that climb has crushed a lot of racers. Cling to those wheels all the way around the right hand corner and save a little bit to come up to speed for the descent. A reasonable sized group will make the finish line but not with pure flatlanders.

12/08 | Park Perimeter Loop

The Finale for the first half of our Winter series. The Park Perimeter Loop is always a high competitive race. Sparky with short power climbs often yielding field splits. It favors the racer that rides at the front and enjoys over/under efforts for 60 minutes. 2 Primes

Series Scoring Basics: 

Series points will be awarded for your first race on Tuesday (not best if you chose to race twice), including primes. As we come to the final two weeks ZwiftPower will drop your lowest two results. Prior can require some advanced algebra to determine what if scenarios based on other people's results and race count. More results is generally better. For more details please visit the 'Rules' section.
