Zwift (United States) - Press Release: We’re excited to celebrate the 2019 UCI Road World Championships by bringing a taste of Yorkshire to Zwift with an all-new course. The real-life Harrogate Loop gets the Zwift treatment, and now, everybody in the community has the chance to take on this year’s championship course.
Though rewarding, creating Yorkshire also had its challenges! There’s definitely a distinction between making an all-new map from scratch (e.g. Watopia) and recreating something from real life. All the fun little details? The twists? The turns? You have to make sure they all match the actual location. Or you may just get called out! Luckily, our team was up to the task.
Zwift’s Art Director, Tony Yruegas, gives us the lowdown on Yorkshire. Many courses here at Zwift have been developed under his creative direction and this homage is no different. The new Yorkshire course is our vision of road cycling at the most prestigious level brought to life.
