Zwift – the indoor online training and racing platform taking cycling by storm – is set to take centre stage at Phynova Six Day London.
Cycling Esports will light up the Lee Valley Velodrome on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, with those in track centre treated to box seat and spectators watching the action on big screens.
The rip-roaring races, featuring a selection of U21 athletes and a top crop of Elite Women, will also be included in the event’s global broadcast.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, eight U21 riders will fight it out in a 15km virtual scratch race.
Tuesday’s field features Brits Red Walters, Theo Modell and William Roberts, while Lucas Towers, Charley Calvert, Santiago Cadavid, Thomas Day and Georg Mew Jensen feature on Wednesday.
On Thursday newly-crowned European champions Emily Nelson and Neah Evans will take to Zwift for a 12km virtual scratch race.
They will go up against Ireland’s Shannon McCurley, who won silver in the scratch race at the European Championships last week, and fellow home hope Manon Lloyd.
