Racing with others, not just against others, is the secret sauce of online sport. It inspires us to perform at our best and helps push us to ever more extraordinary achievements. It’s why the indieVelo community has prioritized the creation of teams and why the platform’s founders are delighted that this week’s release (see below for full details) includes an exciting new way of competing online: Team Points Races

Team Points Races are just like regular points races, but the points awarded at each sprint location contribute to your team’s total. With live on-screen updates, you’ll always know exactly what you’re racing for, and every point won in every location makes a real and visible difference to your team. With you and your teammates’ success at stake, you’ll never push yourself harder!

Get started immediately, either by creating your own team (full details are here: or if you want to try it out, hop into one of the many regular scheduled team races, and indieVelo will automatically allocate you to a temporary team for the event.

If all has gone well, then you shouldn’t have to do anything to get the new version, as indieVelo will just self-update the next time you start it up.

If you find any problems however, instructions on how to manually update are on the website:
