Thirteen weeks in to the CW club ten and our list of winners grows ever longer. Two riders have dominated the women’s races with Kathy Alvarez taking five wins and Naomi de Pennington four. The other four wins have gone to Caroline Whittaker, Frances Owen, Rachel Lieberman and Lizzy Zoom.
The men’s events have seen a bigger variety of victors, with only Gavin Lancaster taking multiple wins. He’s had three in total on the London 8, Bologna and Tick Tock courses.

The Cycling Weekly club ten continues and will cycle through the same courses listed below.
To ride this week all you have to do is go to the event page on Zwift and once you’ve logged in, hit the tick in the top right to say you’re going. You can also enter via the Zwift Companion app.
If you haven’t raced on Zwift before, it’s very simple to get yourself on the start line. Be sure to pre-enter via Zwift.com or the companion app and log in to Zwift in plenty of time before the 6pm start (this is recommended in case there are any updates needed on your device). Then start pedalling in any of the worlds and wait for a prompt to join the event.
Once that appears on your screen simply click it to go through to the start line. Here you’ll be placed on a conveyer belt, lined up with other riders. You can keep pedalling so you don’t cool down and there is no risk of false starting. As riders ahead of your start, you’ll gradually move forward. When you get to the front your avatar will speed up to 20km/h to give you a rolling start.
From there it’s a case of going as hard as you can for 10 miles. Measuring your effort should be easy with a big number displaying your watts in the middle of the screen, but with riders to chase, and riders chasing you, it’s easy to get carried away.
We’ll be running the results in the following week’s magazine. As we’ll be taking these from zwiftpower.com you’ll first need to register on here. There are a few steps to follow to be registered on here, but this simple guide talks you through it. Be warned, registering on Zwift power makes all your ride data available for anyone to see, so if you’d rather keep your FTP between you and your power metre, this might not be for you.
