6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championships Go Virtual For 2020
November 13, 2020
The Inaugural VWTTC Powered By FulGaz, December 5-6
Boulder, CO (November 13, 2020) – For the first time in 10 years the 6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championships (WTTC) was not held. The announcement was made with heavy hearts and it left a void for every ultra-racer in the world.
When adversity appears, so does opportunity. Thanks to the team at Fulgaz racers will be able to participate virtually on the actual long loop in Borrego Springs, CA. On December 5-6, 2020, the first VWTTC will be held, powered by FulGaz, an app that looks and feels as close to riding outdoors as possible. This means that riders all over the world will be able to have the visual experience of the actual long loop in Borrego Springs from their trainer. As of the writing of this release, there are 18 countries represented.
“While we are preparing for next year’s race, we didn’t want to miss out completely on 2020. It has been challenging, for sure, but we felt that this would give racers something to look forward to at the end of the year. The great part is that racers will get to actually see and ‘ride’ the long loop of the beautiful course in Borrego Springs. It may not have the same energy and feeling of the live race but the beauty of the landscape and the competition can be felt. We look forward to this being an annual race every December so that people who could not race the WTTC live in October will have an opportunity to compete in their own way,” said Rick Boethling, Executive Director.
There will be four categories of entry: The traditional 6-, 12- and 24-hour categories and a newly added 3-hour category.
