April Tacey: What it takes to win a Virtual Tour de France stage

2020 E-Racer of the Year in association with Zwift: April Tacey

This year April Tacey made history as both the first woman to win a stage of the Virtual Tour de France in July. With a perfectly timed sprint and a judicious use of a power-up (that’s the way racing works in the virtual world, in case you’re not familiar folks) she blasted past some of the world’s best.

She wasn’t finished either. The 19-year-old from just outside Leicester would go on to win another stage on stage four in similar fashion.
