Four different events to tackle this weekend, with one which is very unique and probably the shortest flat time trial I have seen.

Mountain Massif – The Race

I decided to highlight Mountain Massif’s Saturday event on the basis that the Spiral into the Volcano course is being used for the very first time.  It will be interesting to have a long, flat ride before battle commences on the slopes of the Volcano.  I can imagine that the pace on the final climb will be rapid and will make for an eventful finale.

LEQP Provence Badge Hunter Series

These are always well organised events and with two different paces to ride, there is something for everyone.  Their weekend ride is tackling the Three Little Sisters route, so if you want a well-paced group ride then this is for you.

Herd Stampede ITT

The shortest time trial possible on Zwift, 2.1km.  A simple 1 lap time trial using the Bell Lap.  I have not seen this before and is certainly worth a try.
