EVENT DESCRIPTION

WHAT’S ALL THIS THEN?
Join Herd Racing as we present a very special December to Remember Edition of our ever-popular Climbers Gambit hill climb series!

IS THIS A RACE?
Everything in life is a race! But this race is a little bit different:
THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS IN THIS RACE SERIES IS YOUR TIME ON THE TIMED KOM SEGEMENT VERSUS OTHER RIDERS IN YOUR CATEGORY. Feel free to take it easy for the rest of the ride and get in a good warmup + a nice cooldown.

Be sure to finish the event route, crossing the blue custom finish banner, or your hill time will not count.


Draft + Powerups are both disabled, so it is just you against the following hills (start times listed below are very much approximate based on cursory YouTube race stream research…best to verify + stay alert out there!).

Times are ranked across all races each Weeknd and go toward an overall cumulative climbing time for GC purposes.

Please note that, although we were largely successful in previous seasons, ZwiftPower did present multiple errors and flaws throughout the season with regard to Timing + Scoring. Please be patient if things look a bit off. Worst case you’ll all get a refund of your race entry fees.

Climb start times listed above are approximate based on route descriptions + YouTube race scouting…keep your head up out there and look for the Zwift glowing red start line on the road!

Individual race results for KOM times can be found on ZwiftPower; just search for Herd Climbers Gambit and find the race time in which you competed.

I WANT TO RACE AT DIFFERENT TIMES!
Okay calm down…there are multiple time slots to choose from each weekend! It doesn't matter if you don't do the same time slot each time. But you can race multiple times each weekend and your best result will count towards the overall GC.

I CAN'T MAKE IT TO EVERY RACE!
Well cancel your Weeknd trips to the shopping mall because to compete for this digital trophy you’re going to have to complete all four stages and compile hill times towards the overall GC.
