Ella Harris – From Virtual World to World Tour

While Zwift and indoor training are the buzzwords at the moment, I thought it was fitting to talk to a rider who knows Zwift a whole lot better than I do and had a really interesting way of becoming Pro.

Ella Harris is a pro rider from New Zealand that came through the Zwift academy in 2018, out-testing her rivals to be selected to race in the Women’s World Tour with Pro team Canyon-SRAM.

We chat about this interesting selection process, now in it’s 4th year, and hear how she found transitioning from racing in the virtual world to racing in the world tour.

I hope you enjoy the insight!
