Lockdown may stopped racing but on Monday 11th the team flipped the script to sharpen our e-racing skills with our first mentor session of 2021. Bike racing, You Tube and Zwift sensations Cameron Jeffers [Ribble Weldtite] and Chris Pritchard joined the team to chew over the finer points of racing on Zwift and RGT platforms.
In the first lockdown our riders bagged a stack of podiums in British Cycling Youth series races on Zwift, but Cameron and Chris took us to the next level of knowledge, explaining the nuisances competing successfully in senior races. We dug into team-work, power-ups, sprinting , drafting and how RGT platform races differ in techniques.
The team have been duking it out on the Deeside Thistle and Moray Thistle race series on Wednesday nights at 7.25pm UK time, and had a few wins and podiums with a 9km solo break in the race between Christmas and new year from Archie, after Fin and Alf shredded the peloton.
It might not be racing as we know it but if you want to take on international all comers without leaving home its pretty damn good, Thanks a heap to Cameron and Chris. In the meant time get to You Tube and subscribe to Cameron and Chris' channels.
