Description

The Zwift Para-cycling Virtual Time Trial Series, hosted by U.S. Paralympics Cycling, is a weekly time trial for Para-cyclists in all classifications utilizing the Zwift Tempus Fugit course (17.5 km), hosted by U.S. Paralympics Cycling.

 

This event is open to athletes of any ability throughout the world, including those who ride handcycles, tricycles, tandems or standard bicycles. All athletes who participate will appear in the results on Zwift. In addition, athletes who appear on the UCI Classification Master list (https://www.uci.org/para-cycling/classification) will be included in results by classification, published following the event on the U.S. Paralympics Cycling website.

 

Athletes who sign-up for the TT each week will get an individual start time (equal to or after the event’s start time). Make sure to log in and join the event before that time, and your avatar will line up on one of the conveyor belts in the starting pen. These belts will move riders up and release them in staggered starts. Start pedaling before the countdown hits zero. When it’s time for your row to leave the pen, your avatar will speed up to 20 miles per hour for a rolling start. Cross the line and it’s go time!
