Sunday Race Club

MyWhoosh, the premier esports indoor cycle platform, invites cyclists of all abilities, from anywhere on the globe, to compete in fair racing with other racers of similar ability every Sunday in our Sunday Race Club (SRC).   

SRC is held every Sunday at 2pm (GST) for men and 4pm (GST) for women. SRC offers categories that suit everyone. From first-timers to seasoned professionals our categorisation system will find the right group of racers for you. You can even team up with friends and race as a team. 

Not only is our racing fun, fast, and available to everyone. SRC also has a monthly “grand final” race for excellent prize money for all categories and teams.   

Best of all, SRC is free to enter. 

The Race

At MyWhoosh we believe racing is the pinnacle of cycling and our SRC reflects this. Cycle racing is hard work, and our aim is for you to walk away knowing you have given your best, no matter what your ability. Racing in SRC is the best way to both test yourself and improve your fitness. 

The SRC is typically held over a route of varied terrain, some weeks the race can be relatively flat and others with over 1000m of climbing.  

Results are based on first across the line in each category. However, during each SRC there are several segments you can compete in. These range from short sprints, to longer rouleur segments to 10km KOM’s on the weeks we hit the mountains. These are a great way to compare your times to other racers or to take bragging rights.  

All categories start together and are identified by different jerseys. Most SRC’s start at a frantic pace before settling into hard racing against riders in your category.  

The Riders – Categorisation

In previous SRC’s we have had racers that range from world esports champions and world tour riders to riders that are just starting out and having their first race. SRC caters for everyone.   One of the biggest issues in esports racing is fairness. To overcome this MyWhoosh have a verification protocol for all Cat 1 riders that includes weigh ins, dual power recording, and heart rate data. This information is then verified using our proprietary system to ensure there is no one gaining an unfair advantage.   For Cat 2 and 3 riders we ask for smart trainer and heart rate data. This allows us to ensure you are racing people of similar abilities.   Each week out team looks at the data, ensures fairness and allocates riders a category based on many factors including previous results. For first timers our team will work with you to understand you as a rider to start you in the right category.  Categories change week to week based on previous results, the entry list and the course. 
Why should I race SRC?

Where else can you race in a fair event against riders of similar ability on tough courses with prize money. It will be hard, fun and challenging. Some of our faster racers finish in just over an hour with some of our newer racers taking up to 2 hours. You don’t need to be Tadej Pogačar to race with us. No matter how fast or slow you are, you are welcome in our events.  

As the great Greg Lemond once said, it never gets easier, we just get faster. Hopefully we will see you out there…..
