Australian and New Zealand riders will race for trans-Tasman supremacy in a new esports series starting next week.

The AusCycling National Elite Individual Esports Series will see the best riders from both nations contest four weekly rounds on Zwift.

The schedule features a mixture of flat and punchy courses:

  • June 8 – Richmond Rollercoaster – 22.1km (2 laps)
  • June 15 – Neokyo Crit Course – 20.2km (5 laps)
  • June 22 – Gotham Grind Reverse – 27.9km (3 laps)
  • June 29 – Downtown Titans – 25.4km (1 lap)

Each race will contribute towards a points tally that decides the overall individual classification.

Races will be held at 6:30pm AEST for women and 6:35pm for men.

“We’ll see who the best riders in Australia and New Zealand are,” said Adam Power, AusCycling’s Event Operations Manager.

“I’m sure cycling esports selectors will be keeping a close eye on the series, even if it’s not an official selection event.”

The elite series is open to riders aged 17 and above, categorised in ZwiftPower as A or A+. Australian riders must be AusCycling members.
