Everyone loves a bit of friendly competition, and Zwift has brought virtual racing to the world of indoor training. We’re big fans of this video-game like riding experience, so we want to share it with as many of you as possible. How? With a challenge! Here’s the deal: Five rides. One route. Five chances to compete at your local Trek Bicycle Store for a $100 gift card. Complete them all for a chance to win massive grand prizes and eternal glory!
Trek x Zwift Ride Challenge is a series of five short indoor rides to be completed on smart trainers paired with Zwift training software once a month from November 2017 – March 2018. The course will take the average participant 2-4 minutes, and there are a couple of ways to participate. At an event: Stores will host a Trek x Zwift Ride Challenge Race Day Event once a month. This is a chance to both join the competition and enjoy a party! Plus, it comes with special prizes. Learn more below. In the store: We will have CycleOps Hammer and Magnus smart trainers paired with Zwift set up in our demo center throughout the winter. Riders can join the competition any time they are ready to ride the course, and we will record the fastest times on the in-store leader’s board.
Race Day Events
We encourage everyone to join our in-store Race Day Events for the full Trek x Zwift Ride Challenge experience. Race Day Events will be held at Trek Bicycle Stores on the last Saturday of each month from 12:00 – 3:00pm. Why attend? Because like us, you love raffle prizes, scrumptious snacks, righteous jams, and a rowdy cheering section encouraging you as you throw down your best effort.
You might even come across the likes of Jens Voigt or other Trek athletes. They’ll be making cameo appearances on the course during all events.
Do it for the sticker. Every rider will receive a uniquely awesome top tube sticker for each month that they compete.
Like the look of these threads? Come to the event to pick up your official Trek X Zwift Ride Challenge t-shirt.
This is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about Zwift and smart trainers from the experts. We’ll answer all your questions, walk you through different smart trainers, and help you sign up for Zwift.
Prizes, prizes, and grand prizes
Every store will feature a leader’s board to track times of those who compete. The fastest lady and fastest gent each month will win a $100 gift card redeemable at that location. So…ride fast. The grandest prize will be awarded to the two riders (one lady, one gent) who record the fastest time at any event during the five-ride series. These riders will be crowned Trek x Zwift World Champions, and their efforts will be rewarded with a CycleOps Hammer smart trainer and Garmin 520 cycling computer. All times must be recorded at the store to qualify for the World Championship. Race Day Events also include raffle prizes all participants are eligible for.
