In 2020 we will be launching a turbo racing series. Race against your mates, race against rival clubs, and do it in a safe intimate venue with a cracking atmosphere!
More details on the racing format will be released soon, but what we can tell you is the races will be short and sharp ridden over realistically simulated courses. We can run crits around St Pauls, hill climbs up Box Hill, essentially anywhere we fancy really.
Whilst the racing will be competitive and riders stacked against each other relative to their FTP in Watts per Kilo, the emphasis will be on creating a fun and social atmosphere with the spectators standing directly behind the racers cheering them on.
The best bit is, if you lack racing experience, this is the perfect way to start. Because we are racing on the trainers over a simulated course, anyone can race anyone and no one gets left behind. All that happens at the end is we step off the bikes, grab a drink and some pizza and carry on the good time!
Urban Duathlon Series
In March 2020 we are launching our Urban Duathlon Series. Our goal, to make participation in triathlon/duathlon that little bit less scary and totally hassle free.
Our Urban Duathlon series will take place in and around the studio. With the run sections outside over a course around the studio complex, each lap being approximately 1 kilometre. The bike leg of course taking place inside our turbo training studio over a realistic course simulated by our studio software.
Race format will be: 2km run – 10km cycle – 2km run.
Our Urban Duathlon series is ideal if you are new to triathlon/duathlon and those looking for short and hassle free racing. It literally could not be simpler. Turn up with your bike and a pair of running shoes and you are good to go!
