Super League Triathlon has been fielding a team in the Zwift Classics series and tomorrow night’s finale will feature five Super League athletes taking on an invitational field.

The Super League squad is stacked, featuring two-time Olympic gold medalist Alistair Brownlee (GBR), last year’s ITU world champion Vincent Luis (FRA), and Canada’s top Olympic hope Tyler Mislawchuk. They’ll be joined by New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde and Germany’s Jonas Schomburg.

Other pro cycling teams taking part in the event include NTT Continental Cycling Team, Hagens Berman Axeon, Ribble-Weldtite Pro Team, SEG Racing Academy and Vitus Pro Cycling.

Saturday’s race, the Crit City Slam, is a points race that includes 10 laps of the 1.9 km “Downtown Dolphin” loop on the Zwift platform for a total of 19 km. Points are awarded for the 10 intermediate sprints and at the finish line. There’s US$1,000 for the win, with prize money going down to 15th place.

The race will take place on Saturday, April 25 at 2 pm EST – you can watch it here.

Note: An earlier version of this story noted that Lionel Sanders would be taking part in tomorrow’s race – we’ve since learned that he will not be part of the Canyon ZCC team.
