Zwift: Cervélo Gravel Rush Series Announced

The Mid South may not have just been the first major gravel event of the year, it may have been the last for quite some time. With the world practicing social distancing,  Zwift has just announced a new and well-timed event series: the “Cervélo Gravel Rush Series”. This four-event series happens on Thursdays beginning March 26th and ending April 16th:


Dirt is the name of the game in the Cervélo Gravel Rush Series. A first-of-its-kind event series, we’re focusing on gravel and mixed-terrain routes to showcase Zwift’s selection of in-game, off-road bikes. Different bikes have different advantages, with distinct ways of handling rolling resistance and aerodynamics.

The series will run for four weeks in total. During the first three, we’ll assign specific bikes to Zwifters. Ride it out. These distinct bikes might affect the dynamic of the event, bringing forth different tactics than a typical ride. See if you can feel the differences in how the bikes react in-game. In the fourth and final week, riders can choose their bike in a Battle-of-the-Bikes situation on the Road to Ruins. Head to the Drop Shop to equip a Cervélo Áspero, R5 or any other bike.

Knock out any event to unlock the special in-game Cervélo kit. Feel like taking the ride outdoors? Finish all four events, and you’ll be entered to win a real-life Cervélo  Ãspero complete bike!

The Cervélo Gravel Rush Series will be streamed on  Zwift Live  with commentary from Nathan Guerra. His energy is more than a match for what you’ll see out on the dirt.

It all kicks off March 26.

UNLOCK THE KIT

  • Complete any one of the events to score the stylish in-game Cervélo kit.

PRIZES

*The CervéloÁspero prize may differ slightly from the image shown based on stock availability.

IS THIS A RACE?

Nope. This is all about trying out new types of bikes and seeing how they perform over mixed terrain. You into gravel bikes? Road bikes? Join the fun and find a new favorite. But be warned: some will ride this series as fast as they can. If you’re into a challenge, you may find yourself riding just as hard as you would in a race. In the end, the choice is yours.
