Tim Searle
Date completed: February 24
Tim is holder of the most kms on Zwift (now over 200,000) and runs the AHDR group rides, some of the most popular on the platform. He hit the total earlier than usual due to the fact the Tour Down Under didn't run in its usual format. He usually takes time off to spectate whereas this year he pushed on with this riding instead.

Nick Anderson
Date completed: February 24

Catherine Allen
Date completed: March 9
Catherine signed up to the CW5000 on March 18 after seeing 3R team mate Ross Duncan had completed the challenge. Catherine, a former marathon runner, is on the turbo every morning before most people get out of bed. You can read more about her riding in the interview we did with her in April.

Ross Duncan
Date completed: March 13
Ross was initially the first person to complete the challenge - as per 2020 - but was first knocked off the top spot by a 3R team mate Catherine Allen who signed up to the challenge after seeing the news that Ross had completed the challenge, and then bumped down again when Tim Searle signed up. Ross does the bulk of his riding on Zwift and each year raises money for causes close to his heart.
