SEG Racing Academy to land in Esports
We are proud to announce that SEG Racing Academy, in partnership with SEG Esports, will launch the first-ever professional virtual cycling team: SEG Racing Academy Esports. The decision to enter the world of esports is part of the Academy’s international development strategy and represents a new way to engage with potential talents, fans and online cycling enthusiasts all over the world.

In early 2019, SEG Racing Academy Esports is aiming to start racing in Zwift, (a multiplayer online cycling video-game) but will also be looking into other games and opportunities in a long-term. The esports program will be fully integrated into the already existing and successful Racing Academy performance structure, giving the esport team members access to areas covering training, material, nutrition and general wellbeing.

SEG Esports and SEG Racing Academy Esports will also be working together on creating an online competition of Cyanide Studio’s Pro Cycling Manager 2018 to find the best online cycling manager. The competition will be unveiled in early 2019 and will challenge players worldwide to manage the SEG Racing Academy as best as they can. The winner will have the chance to become the newest top seat in professional virtual cycling: the one of General Manager, SEG Racing Academy Esports!
