The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) and Zwift, the virtual training platform, have agreed a partnership that will see Zwift as the Official Virtual Training and Events Partner of The Collins Cup in 2021.
Set to take place on 28th August at the x-bionic® sphere in Šamorín, near Bratislava, Slovakia, The Collins Cup is a new race format modelled after the Ryder Cup, which will see teams of European, International and USA athletes pitted against one another and put on display the excitement, rivalry, drama and personalities of the sport of triathlon.
The partnership will also see a 4 week digital activation, ‘The Collins Cup Tri Series by Zwift’, take place in the lead up to the Collins Cup race on 28th August. It will consist of a competition where the kilometers ridden or run by participants across the globe contributes to their chosen teams total – either Team International, Team Europe or Team US. The winning team will earn the right to select the first race day match up at the opening ceremony on August 25th which will be broadcast to a global audience.
