What is this Community Race series?
The Z Pro Tri Race Series is a place for professional triathletes to duke it out in a chaotic, next-level race series. With unique event formats, it’s the perfect place to watch top triathletes dig deep across a range of short, intense races.

However, the community also has the opportunity to ride the exact same courses as the pros. The three-week series consists of three short, sharp races every week, which will follow each other in quick succession, so the final Hill Climb TT is done on exhausted legs.

Do I have to do all three races every week?
Not at all. You can do one, two, or all of them! It’s completely up to you. However, doing all three gives you the full Z PRO experience.

Will this be a broadcast event?
No. Only the pro races will be broadcast, but there will be a segment during the main broadcast that highlights standout performances from the community races.

Are the events drafting or non-drafting?
The Crit race and Scratch race have drafting, while the Hill Climb TT is a non-drafting event.

Will there be a results service?
Yes, there will be results and league standings on ZwiftPower.com Please be sure to register for an account at ZwiftPower.com, then link it to your Zwift account.

Will “late-join” be enabled?
No, there will be no “late-join.”

  • All the way down to 20th place, who gets 1 point
