About Zwift x
Haute Route gives amateurs a taste of what pro racing feels like. Zwift makes indoor training fun. Together, they provide a world-class Haute Route experience from the comfort of home.
Stage 1 | Friday, Feb 26
Haute Route Watopia 2021 kicks off on a modified version of the massive Mega Pretzel route, beginning near the Volcano and Italian Village. Twist your way across Watopia’s various distinct circuits and hills before bringing the heat at a brand-new finish line—the top of the Volcano KOM.
Stage 2 | Saturday, Feb 27
Catch us in downtown Watopia, as we take off across Ocean Blvd for the second stage of the series. With a number of KOMs packed inside fun, fast loops—before wrapping up at the Epic KOM Reverse Summit—you’ll be spending a lot of time in, and out, of the saddle.
Stage 3 | Sunday, Feb 28
Answer the call of the wild and hammer through the sequoias of Titans Grove and the sandy stretches of Fuego Flats. Save some gas in the tank to finish strong with the final Alpe du Zwift climb. With perseverance and pacing, you’ll reach the banner at the summit. Then take a bow.
PRIZES AND KIT
When you’re riding like a pro, it’s best to look the part. Finish just one event to receive a special £50 // $68 Le Col reward.
