A report from Richie Sheerin, the founder-chairperson of “Team racing without borders”

Team Racing Without Borders, Cycling Ireland’s only virtual racing team and club is in the final preparations of building its team rosters to take on the most prestigious Virtual Racing League on the planet. The WTRL Zwift Racing League starts on the 28th of September with approximately 2,500 teams from every corner of the globe and timezone possible. This truly is the only league where you can race against the best virtually with the hope of gaining entry to the Premier League with the big guns. https://www.wtrl.racing/zwift-racing-league/
Last Season we had 2 Mixed Cat B teams win their League Divisions and one of our Mixed C teams the “Racing Without Borders Dragons” were narrowly beaten in the final sprint to be crowned World Champions after winning the C1 Division outright. The Ladies were smashing it too. A lot of these ladies have never raced before and really impressed in the first couple of seasons racing. Steadily climbing the ranks and league positions and divisions. A force to be reckoned with.

So far we are building 12 mixed teams and 5 women’s only teams. We have teams from Cat D to Cat A+ so we have a team for everyone. If you are new to Zwift and want to race please get in touch and complete this form: https://forms.gle/Jm9Wx6iJx5U1fWFdA
