Zwift will host Cycling Canada’s flagship esports event on February 10-11, 2024.

The UCI Cycling Esports World Championship is shifting to MyWhoosh in 2024. Cycling Canada’s team selection process will take place on the MyWhoosh platform. More information, including dates, will be provided when they become available.

“The 2023-2024 Esports season is set to be an exciting one for Cycling Canada and we can’t wait to get started,” said Cycling Canada Director of Marketing and Events, Josh Peacock.

The 2024 Canadian Esports Championships

The third edition of the Canadian Esports Championships will take place on Zwift, with broadcasts on Zwift Community Live scheduled for February 10-11, 2024. There will be a four-race series in the month leading up to the event.

Additional information, such as the technical guide and registration details, will be available on the Cycling Canada Events webpage in the coming weeks.

Cycling Canada Weekly Rides

Cycling Canada’s Monday rides will offer different time zone options for the first time, making it more convenient for participants from various regions to participate. Each week, we will feature different courses catering to a range of training levels.

Ride leaders will set a steady pace to ensure a social ride experience, typically ranging from 1.5 to 2.0 watts per kilogram (w/kg).

Wednesday Team Canada Rides

Every three weeks, National Team athletes lead accessible, social rides on the same racecourse as the week’s Monday ride. Participants can join highly interactive group rides with their favorite athletes and connect with them via Discord peer-to-peer voice chats.

The season’s first Wednesday Team Canada Ride, featuring Jenn Jackson, is scheduled for November 8 at 8:15 p.m. ET. Don’t miss this opportunity to train with the recent Santiago 2023 Pan American Games gold medalist!

Additional details and Zwift event sign-up information are available here.

Saturday Fundo Rides

Starting every Saturday at 12:05 p.m. ET, riders will have the opportunity to explore various Zwift courses featuring distances ranging from 20 to 50km.

Participants are welcome to join at their own pace or compete against fellow riders in a test of fitness and endurance.

“Esports are such an invaluable tool for developing the cycling community. We think this upcoming season exemplifies that by providing a range of accessible riding opportunities, tying into events and the athlete pathway with the Canadian Championships and a creating unique connection point with our National Team athletes,” concludes Peacock.
