With Zwift no longer the platform of choice for the UCI Esports World Championships, the popular indoor riding software has doubled down on making its own premier event for Zwifters: the Zwift Games. 

The inuagural Zwift Games will be a month-long series of rides and races for all levels. Anyone can take part in the five-stage series, which runs from March 1-17 and offers make-up events from March 18-31. Those who compete in all five stages will be eligible to take part in the general classification challenge to achieve their best combined time over the month by completing any stage more than once.
