THE 2020 LAMB CHOP BY BLACK SHEEP
And we’re back. The next serving of races in the Lamb Chop series is here.
Kicking off on Thursday the 2nd of July, we’re bringing six more weeks of races that’ll push the limits of your endurance. Join Black Sheep for six weeks of fast-paced action that can be ridden by all levels - from weekend hacker to over-obsessed semi-pros.
The Lamb Chop Series also gets the full treatment with live commentary from the Koa Sports Team streamed right here on Black Sheep or on Zwift Community Live.
ABOUT THE LAMBCHOP
Lambchop is a unique handicap format where everyone can get involved. The Chop' is a handicap race which means people are grouped by skill and staggered, with slower riders taking off first. This gives everyone in every grade a chance to be there racing at the finish. So get your racing strategy dialled and be precise with your PowerUps near the finish line. If you have no idea what that means, then just ride harder.
NEW BLACK SHEEP KIT UP FOR GRABS
Complete any of the six races to score the new Racing Club kit in-game, and access to an exclusive Black Sheep kit in the real world. Or maybe the real world is actually virtual, and we are actually just a bunch of avatars riding up volcanos! Mind. Blown.
No prizes. But a higher FTP maybe your reward for your performance.
IS THIS A RACE?
Yes. Not of individual glory, but rather one based on the strengths of a well-working group. Anyone from any ability has a shot at winning, and the pace of the race means everyone gets a great workout. Give it a try!
Results for Lamb Chop races will be available on Zwift Power. Please register on Zwift Power ahead of racing, including opting in at the bottom of your connections panel in My Zwift.
