Zwift’s Tour of Watopia returns in 2022 and provides Zwifters with the opportunity to step up to another level thanks to their double XP points (points per km ridden). The event kicks off on Mar. 9 and concludes five stages with different routes and distances. There will be four new routes introduced to the series: Three Little Sisters, Triple Flat Loops, Downtown Titans and Eastern Eight.

Not only cyclist will be treated with some new routes, also runners can run two new routes: the Italian Villas Sprint and the Mayan Bridge Loop, formerly known as the “rebel routes”.

Tour of Watopia also provides athletes with a new gravel route, named Handful of Gravel. Zwift mentions they will “be laying down gravel over existing dirt for a new way to experience the jungle”.

Not only will the amount of XP points that you can earn, be doubled, PowerUps will also last twice as long. Athletes who complete all five stages, can ride in the Tour of Watopia race kit for the rest of the year.
