Zwift is launching its inaugural virtual training camp with Ineos Grenadiers this January, giving riders the chance to join Tour de France winners, Olympic and World Champions in this 12-event series.
The camp, which begins on 24 January and is exclusively on Zwift’s virtual cycling platform, consists of workouts that have been inspired by the star riders of the team, and their individual strengths as riders, giving Zwifters the chance to train like two past winners of the Tour de France, Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal.
“Over the course of the six-week series, you will discover workouts designed to improve your climbing, time trialling, sprinting and more,” says Zwift.
To explain what training you’ll be doing each session, there will be a supplementary video series, featuring riders and team coaches explaining each of the workouts.
Workouts can be completed by joining the scheduled group workouts on the event calendar, or on-demand, by selecting them from the Zwift workout library.
There will also be opportunities to join the pros, including the likes of Egan Bernal, Geraint Thomas, Tao Geoghegan Hart in their workouts. You can find the full list of pro-led workouts here.

As an avid road and track racer, she reached the heady heights of a ProCyclingStats profile before leaving for university. Having now completed an MA in Multimedia Journalism, she’s hoping to add some (more successful) results.
