KISS 1st Birthday Bash 2016
Wednesday 21st December at 8pm UTC sees KISS celebrate 1 year of the KISS Race Series with the KISS Birthday Bash. The race is a format known as an Australian Pursuit Race (APR) Unlike an ordinary road race, an APR is run as a handicap event. Groups of riders start at different time intervals, based on ability over the Watopia figure of 8 course. The first rider over the finishing line is the winner, so groups that start later must close the time gap to the leading groups in order to win the race.
Racers will be separated in to 6 groups based on your best segment time for the Watopia Figure of 8 Course. Please join the correct group for your segment using time bands published in the KISS Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/KISSZwiftRoadRace/
To help celebrate the organisers have arranged a bonanza giveaway. All racers who complete the race and are not disqualified based on race rules will qualify to go in to the random draw. And we have some fantastic prizes on offer from 4iiii, PedalPower & Cycligent/Team Experimental.
The event will be covered live by the Awesome Broadcast team that is Nathan Guerra and Jonny Noblett at www.beam.pro/NathanGuerra.

About the sponsors:
PedalPower opened in St Helier in 2004. It was created by 2 of Jersey’s avid racing cyclists spanning 2 generations. Jersey’s love and passion for cycling flourished through the shop providing products and service that the Island had been lacking. The Pedal Power team has grown over the years. We are mountain bikers, time trialists, and road bikers with experience in UCI European events, UK Premier Calendar series, Commonwealth and Island Games experience. Your Passion is Our Passion.
Cycligent Cloud is web app bliss for developers, managers and users. You can find more information here: www.cycligent.com Team X was the first team ever to win on Zwift and won the TTT world champs this year with its honour before victory ethos.
As being used by Etixx – Quickstep World Pro Tour cycling team, reviewed by Titanium Geek (www.titaniumgeek.com/gear-reviews/4iiii-precision-gen2-powermeter-review-zwift-gear-test/ ) and tested here at KISS HQ for the last 5 weeks, we are thrilled to offer the incredibly accurate 4iiii Precision Powermeter and the Viiiiva HRM ANT+ Bluetooth Bridge. These units have been very reliable, responsive, and comparable with other Powermeters in terms of accuracy. Along with the Viiiiva HRM you would be setup for either PC or iOS Zwifting. See http://www.4iiiiuk.com/ for further information about these 2 great products and other products available from 4iiii.
Team WBR’s goals are to be a close knit team following our manifesto: to race hard, to improve Zwift, to help Zwifters get fit via our #ProStyleTraining group rides, to run Club WBR as a social training hub, and to raise awareness about our sponsors, especially World Bicycle Relief (www.worldbicyclerelief.org) who bring Buffalo Bikes to help the world’s most in need of transport.
