We want to announce that for the time being the Academy will be renamed to SEG eRacing Academy as a part of a program that will centered in resuming our racing activity via virtual cycling platforms. At the same time, our talents will be provided with detailed webinar sessions featuring interviews, talks and masterclasses from our performance staff, Alumni riders and some of the biggest names in the sport.
This way, the SEG eRacing Academy, strives to keep on developing and educating the riders through a unique and alternative calendar in which we aim to keep the same momentum that brought us to take a total of four wins in our first six races of the season. The SEG eRacing Academy calendar will kick off tomorrow with fifth stage of the Tour de Zwift and will be followed by another race on Sunday. Also, during the month of April our talents will take part in the Zwift Classics series.
Aike Visbeek, Academy Director, on the new step:
“With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, we want to put our part and encourage everyone to follow the rules and, in the case of cyclists, to either ride solo or train at home. That’s why we had to be creative as our goal is to keep on developing the riders and educating them for the next step. We are really excited about this new part of the team and it’s clear that our eRacing program is here to stay!”
