Jump into Zwift’s 2017 AMGEN Tour of California Week

ON May 11, 2017 by Zwift

As the 12th annual, AMGEN Tour of California road race soon wheels into action, we’re kicking off Zwift AToC week May 12-21. While many of the world’s top pro women and men compete, we’ll salute the AToC with special rides, features, and prizes in Zwift.

Here’s all that’s happening:

  • Daily AToC group rides, with two or more chances to participate each day. Visit the AMGEN Tour of California Week page for more details.
  • Audio recaps of every AToC stage, narrated by longtime Tour of California announcer Dave Towle. The recordings, including interviews of select AToC riders, will be available to Zwifters during AToC group rides.
  • AToC-themed leader jerseys will replace all traditional Zwift leader jerseys.
  • AToC-themed arches (start-finish; KOM) will replace all traditional Zwift arches.
  • Every day, one Zwifter who participates in a Zwift AToC group ride will be randomly chosen to receive a signed AToC leader jersey.
  • On Wednesday, May 17th at 7 pm PDT (UTC -7), renowned NBC race announcers Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen will be interviewed by Dave Towle while Zwifting race-side in southern California. This 30-minute, 2 w/kg pace ride will be broadcast live on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. Dave will ask Phil and Paul your questions from the Facebook Live stream. Fire away!
