About

The biggest one-day race of 2018! Zwifters from across the globe will battle for a year’s worth of bragging rights and the right to wear the National Championship jersey for 12 months.

Zwifters in 15 countries will battle it out. There will be a men’s race and women’s race in each. Each race will have just one winner.

The pace will be fast from the start.  Stay with leaders or ride your own pace to the finish and see where you stack up against fellow Zwifters in your country. We’ll crown the winner, the 2018 National Champion.

Choosing the countries was easy — we chose the 15 nations with the most Zwifters. If your country wasn’t selected for the inaugural Zwift National Championships, fear not, we are adding more countries next year.
