I have been working very hard to bring all of you riders the best experience we can. This event is for kids ages 15 and under only. The race will be at 8:30 am pst, on Saturday’s and Sunday’s. The winner of the tour will be the rider with the shortest amount of time in the GC(General Classification). We have also shortened and changed the routes a little bit to make the best experience for all riders of all abilities. There will be sprint points, KOM points, Women/girls only standings, and a youth classification. There will be a winner in each category. There will be a meet and greet ride just like that year(just a fun ride to get to know each other), the week before the first stage. Filling out the google form is very important, in order to be invited to the event, you must fill out the google form and follow me. This iconic event begins October 2nd, 2021, if you can’t make it to some of the stages, that is ok, you can still jump in on the fun on the days that you are available!
In October kids from all around the world will gather on Zwift to join the event that only happens twice a year. To join in on the fun click on this link: Click here to sign up. Once you fill out the form, some more information is linked at the end. Please fill out this form so that we know who to invite as this event uses Zwift’s meetup feature. By Name on Zwift, we mean what is the name we can search your profile up at, not your email address(the only information needed to sign up is your name in Zwift).
This event will take place over 4 weeks. If you wish to participate, reading the whole post will be helpful. The first day is October 2nd 2021. A few of the events will be recorded for you all to watch after the race. Please only fill out the google form once, unless you are signing up a sibling. This helps us with the roster and it helps us keep track of who is coming and who to invite. The points go by whoever is fastest through the segment. There are two separate standings for each different thing like sprints and KOMs.For the discord link leave a comment on one of my rides on Zwift, or on this post and I will get the link to you, the link is also on the google form. I will then create a meetup with you that has the link in the description. This is to make sure random people are not joining the server. The winner will receive the honor of being the winner of the third edition of Tour4Kids!

The results will be released within 24 hours of the event finishing. The use of a HRM (Heart rate monitor) is not mandatory and the use of Zpower is ok. If you have a HRM we recommend that you use it for further evidence that you are not cheating. Before racing, we recommend weighing yourself and ensure you have the correct weight entered on Zwift. You may not accuse anyone of cheating without any formal proof. If you do have proof send a message to one of us through discord. Make sure to have fun and keep this as a friendly and welcoming race. Cheating and bad sportsmanship is not tolerated. To participate you must be 15 or under.
