Zwift’s mission to get more people, more active, more often aligns with the purpose-led vision of the 2023 UCI Cycling Worlds of ‘people, place and planet’. The partnership with Zwift as the Official Virtual Fitness Platform will help significantly widen the Championships’ reach and engagement with Zwift’s global audience by driving mass participation and increased activity on the virtual platform.
To mark today’s announcement, a short video celebrating Zwift’s appointment has been released across the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships channels.
