RIAK Racing

E-racing – The London League

We are linking up with the new immersive training platform RGT Cycling to launch an exciting 6 event E-racing series.

Our objective with these races is to create a Friday night pub atmosphere, with an emphasis on the social alongside the turning and burning of turbos.  We’ll have drinks and munch laid on, you just bring your ‘quadzillas’ and filthiest cycling chat!

Whilst the racing will be competitive and riders stacked against each other relative to their FTP in watts per kg, 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 of the race is we step off the bikes, grab a drink and some food and carry on the good time!

The races will be short and sharp with each event involving more than one type of race to test riders in a number of capacities.  There will be points and prizes for individual race positions and a series winner awarded to the person that accumulates the most points over the course of the series.  Each event will also have an RGT sponsored ‘Go Beyond’ prize for the person that most surpasses their own boundaries.

Race entry can be bought individually via the Booking page or purchase the series membership from our Shop and enjoy a significant discount.

GO TRI Urban Duathlon Series

Join us for our 6-race Urban Duathlon Series.  Our goal, to make participation in triathlon/duathlon that little bit less scary and totally hassle free.

Each duathlon will take place in and around the studio complex.  With the run laps outside over a 1km course and the bike leg taking place inside our turbo training studio over a realistically simulated course.

Race format: 2km run – 12.5km cycle – 2km run.

The series is ideal if you are new to triathlon/duathlon and we have sought to time the races so they are well placed in the race calendar as short and hassle free tune up events in the lead up to major races.  It could not be simpler.  Turn up with your bike and a pair of running shoes and you are good to go! No overly officious stewards, no tech doping, just a group of friendly people having a go and pushing each other on.

Each race will involve 3-4 waves of 11 athletes.  Each wave will set off once the previous has finished, so there is no course congestion and no athletes are left outside trudging around on their own. Everyone is cheered on and all done before lunch!

There will be points and prizes for individual race positions and a series winner awarded to the person that accumulates the most points over the course of the series.

Race entry can be bought individually via the Booking page or purchase the series membership from our Shop and enjoy a significant discount.
