In this compilation, we've condensed the entire 2022 Zwift Academy series into a single video – so you can watch them all back-to-back. The video chronicles the journeys of the 10 finalists vying for a professional cycling contract as they transition from the virtual simulation to real-world roads.
Zwift, the virtual training platform, conducts its own academy series every November where aspirant pros and casual riders alike can put themselves through their paces following Zwift’s own training protocol. Combining structured training sessions with virtual racing, participants assess their performance within their categories and aim to develop and prove their skills over six weeks.
