WTRL was founded with one simple idea. Every racer deserves the same amount of organisational effort from us whether they are the strongest A or the lowest ranked D. WTRL is 4 category racing and always will be.
Racing in 2 Time Zones with the idea of smashing through the world time zone barriers by combining both sets of results in to 1 League table. The vast selection of great Watopia racecourses both hilly and flat provide a fantastic individual league suitable for every category of racer.
5 race times available for our hugely addictive Team Time Trial. Your chance to race as a team against the clock to set the fastest possible time. Nowhere else on the platform will you suffer with your teammates as much as you will in this event! With a Winter League and a World Championship this event will push you to your absolute limit.
Team racing Day with our major prime time racing slot to give every team the chance to race as one unit against other teams. To date this time slot has hosted events such as The TRIAD cup Series – Points Pursuit Racing and our marque Winter Team Race which saw over 100 Teams compete in our 2018 Winter League in all 4 categories.
WTRL began when event organizers Steve Milliken and Marc Swatton decided it would be great fun to get as many of their respective teammates to join the same race and have the two teams race each other in all 4 categories.
The concept was a success, and Marc (event and race organizer for Race3R) and Steve (race team leader for Team Type 1) soon realised that other teams wanted to join in. In the spring of 2018, they developed the concept of a race series that involved team racing in all 4 categories.
WTRL launched in October 2018, with the original plan to run for the winter months. It was an instant success, with 136 different teams and over 1000 individual racers taking part!
After such a successful first series they realized there was a demand on Zwift for the format they were providing, so the decision was taken to rebrand as World Tactical Racing Leagues in February 2019.
Due to the growth of specialised events in the Spring of 2019 such as The Triad Series – Watopia Racing League – Points Racing & The Team Time Trial, 2 became 3 with Martin Carew joining the WTRL team. Martin has enabled us to provide a data and results service unrivalled by any other organiser on Zwift
With the launch of our website we aim to bring you an unrivalled events service for Information – Sign-up and results. The biggest winter league ever hosted containing separate KOM & Sprint leagues as well as an overall GC Team competition. Our Team Time Trial will continue to evolve with more time zones added allowing even more participation throughout the world. A 3rd Time Zone added to our Tuesday racing to satisfy the requests from many of our racers. A brand-new Race Training event lead by top racers designed to get riders race fit.
