Canyon-Eisberg training camp kicks off on Zwift tomorrow

Take part for a late summer fitness boost and the chance to win a ride in the team car at the Tour of Britain

Zwift users have the opportunity to join Canyon-Eisberg riders for a virtual training camp (opens in new tab) in the lead up to the Tour of Britain.

The three day indoor training bonanza kicks off on Tuesday this week, with the likes of team riders Andy Tennant, Harry Tanfield, Max Stedman and Ryan Christensen set to take part.

One rider who completes the camp will win the opportunity to follow the OVO Energy Tour of Britain from the inside of the Canyon-Eisberg team car.

There will be two group workouts, plus a group ride, followed by a short race. All three sessions will take place on the indoor training platform, kicking off at 7pm BST.

Zwift workouts allow riders of all abilities to complete intervals - based on their Functional Threshold Power (FTP) - together, without being spread out by differences in fitness.
