Team Bahrain McLaren is proud to announce it will participate in the Tour for All on Zwift alongside other men and women’s WorldTour teams.
The five-stages of virtual racing will run from May 4 to May 8 between 15:00 and 17:00 CEST and will be broadcast live on Eurosport and Global Cycling Network (GCN).
Stages will range in distance from 45km to 75km and between 400m and 1700m in elevation. The overall winning team will be decided on points for placing in each race and points awarded on intermediate sprints. The ‘queen stage’ finishes atop the Alpe du Zwift and is worth double points.
“The Tour for All brings together several critical elements for our team during this unprecedented time. It keeps us in a racing mindset, drives exposure for our partners and gives our fans a unique opportunity to watch and ride with us. What’s more, it’s all for a great cause.” says Rod Ellingworth, Team Principal.
Beyond watching the race series, Zwifters can ride all five-stages of the Tour for All which showcases some of the best riding Zwift has to offer.
The race and riding aspects of the Tour for All are a month-long drive to raise funds for the Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) COVID-19 crisis fund. Zwift will start the Tour with a $125,000 donation to the MSF to support COVID-19 relief efforts. They will then match that donation at the end of the Tour if 250,000 Zwifters finish at least one stage.
The Team Bahrain McLaren line-up will be announced in the coming days.
