THE STAMPEDE (ITT)

Join the Herd Racing League as we go head to head in a mass-start zero-draft series of 12 Individual Time Trial events. Each of the 4 categories will start at the same time, with the winner taking the spoils and adulation of their competitors!

Points are awarded 100 down to 1 for each Category each week and your first race each week is the one that counts.

The Stampede uses Zwift's new Category Enforcement to ensure racers are in the correct starting group. Please see the table below for category calculations. You are able to race at or above your ZCE Category but will not be able to join any category/pen below.

For more information, please visit The Herd on Facebook and why not join us on Discord during the race!

What is Maximal Aerobic Power?

MAP is roughly your 5 minute best power at VO2max.
