2019 Zwift Academy Triathlon Team

on December 21, 2018

We’re back and bigger than ever for 2019!

Ready to kick your triathlon training up a notch? The Specialized Zwift Academy Tri Team is the best way to level up.

Building on the success of 2018, we’re recruiting a new crew to join the best-supported amateur tri team on the planet. Zwift Academy Tri Team members will train like pros under the mentorship of tri superstars Tim Don and Sarah True. Enjoy benefits that money can’t buy like a session in the Specialized Win Tunnel, an opportunity that only select pros get to experience.

“We’ve had well over 500 athletes in the wind tunnel. To have these Academy athletes experience the same thing our professionals have, it’s going to drive some massive results.”

- Mark Cote, Head of Global Marketing and Innovation at Specialized

There are also quite a few benefits that money can buy but add up quickly. We’re talking a new Specialized Shiv. The best in swimming, cycling, and running gear from our amazing partners at Roka, Science in Sport, and Wahoo. Not to mention an all-expenses-paid trip to Kona as well as training camps in California and Spain.

Whether you’ve raced Kona in the past and have your eyes on the podium, are hoping to qualify for the first time, or are somewhere in-between we can help get you to the next level.

“The journey on the Specialized Zwift Academy Tri Team has been like none other, I definitely feel like one of the luckiest people in the world to be given this opportunity. From what started out as a solo quest to complete an Ironman and a dream of qualifying for Kona has become a reality with an unbelievable team, the best sponsors, mentors and coaches that you could ever possibly ask for.”  

-Bex Rimmington, 2018 Specialized Zwift Academy Tri Team member
