Five-day event to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders.
Rally Cycling is logging on and competing in Zwift's Tour For All to help raise funds for Doctors Without Borders. The five-day virtual event running from May 4-8 features a total of 19 men's and women's teams, including several WorldTour squads, that will compete live on Eurosport and GCN app.
The race requires a daily minimum of three riders and a maximum of five riders per team. By the end of the week, over 15 Rally Cycling athletes will have taken part.
As the general population has moved indoors, so have the athletes and the racing. There's no better example of this than California's Krista Doebel-Hickok, who hasn't ridden on the road in weeks and has chosen to embrace stationary riding despite its difficulties.
"I look at this like a new sport that I've taken on and I'm embracing it," said Doebel-Hickok. "I feel like the trainer exacerbates any physical or mental weakness you have and throws them right back at you and you can either choose to accept it or not."
