Gore Wear kicks off Zwift group workout series with Fabian Cancellara

Gore Wear has announced a Zwift group workout series designed in collaboration with cyclist Fabian Cancellara.

Starting on 26th February, the virtual reality training programme comprises a four-week series hosted and led by the two-time Olympic cycling champion.

Besides offering the experience for participants to train with Cancellara, the sessions will also give cyclists the opportunity to ask questions about exercise regimes, riding styles and equipment.

The four group workouts will be hosted on virtual training platform Zwift every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm GMT. They have been designed to prepare riders for the upcoming cycling season as well as formats like the Chasing Cancellara events, and during the final workout participants can match themselves against Cancellara and try to catch up with him virtually.

Anyone who has a Zwift account can participate, and cycling enthusiasts from all over the globe can tune into these free-to-attend workouts, completing them at home on their smart indoor trainers.

During each of the sessions, two participants will be picked at random to win a pair of the Gore Wear C7 bibshorts each. The collection includes the C7 Race bibshorts+, the C7 Long Distance bibshorts+ and the C7 Vent bibshorts+.

“The best shorts throughout my professional career were always the ones I could barely feel. The C7 Vent bibshorts+ definitely belong in this category. Their ventilation is excellent, making them a great choice for hot and humid rides,” said Cancellara.

The Zwift Group Workout Series will end just before the first of the Chasing Cancellara events begin. Riders will get the chance to pit themselves against the former professional cyclist, and a total of 11 races are scheduled to take place around the globe.

Anyone who takes part in all four of the Zwift workout sessions has the chance of securing an exclusive place at one of the Chasing Cancellara events.
