Pedal Hard, Win Gear in Massive Virtual Cycling Comp: Join the ‘Off the MAAP Tour’

Like riding and competition? Beat the heat and join MAAP for its third edition of the ‘Off The MAAP’ Zwift tour.

“Four stages, three weeks, one exclusive kit.” Aussie cycling brand MAAP just announced its third iteration of the annual Off the MAAP Zwift Tour.

In 2020, the Off the MAAP Tour had close to 200,000 riders (making it one of the largest online cycling events in the world). This year, it’s expected to be even bigger than before.

The tour runs from August 3 to August 23 and includes four stages. Plus, for those of us who have extra-busy lives, makeup days.

Stages in the challenge will take cyclists through Zwift’s fictional “Watopia” Pacific Island routes and Japanese-inspired “Yumezi” locale, realistic road routes in New York and London, and even backcountry terrain.

As it’s on Zwift, riders can also choose to compete in group ride mode as a team, or as an individual.

The kit includes MAAP’s Pro Air Jersey, Team Base Layer, Team Bib Evo, Zwift Sock, and Pro Air Cap.
