Can Zwift Academy Make GCN’s MAMIL A Hill Climb Racer?

Published on September 16th 2022


Cillian Kelly is GCN's resident stat man, and whilst he loves cycling, actually riding his bike has taken a bit of a back seat in his life. That was until he road the Etape du Tour earlier this year! Now he's looking for a new challenge, so we signed him up to the Zwift Academy, where at the end of the six week programme, he'll take on the Irish National Hill Climb Championships!
