Caitlin Conyers is one of the five finalists of the 2021 CANYON//SRAM Zwift Academy it has been announced.
Thousands of riders, five female finalists. After eight weeks of lung-busting, leg-shredding rides, we’ve arrived at this small group whose collective passion brought them to the edge of a pro contract.
For the first time, both the men's (competing for a contract with Alpecin-Fenix) and Women's finals will be held together at the same camp. As with the training program, the finals will see all finalists complete some tasks together while others will be performed with their prospective teams.
Team riders and staff from the Zwift Academy team will be present at the camp in Mallorca.
The Zwift Academy Coaches at Dig Deep Coaching as well as our team coaches will be analyzing all performances of the finalists from their outdoor efforts of the famed climbs of Mallorca, their grit in Zwift races as well as off the bike challenges.
The finals will be broadcast by GCN with five films being released capturing the action from finals week. The winners will be announced in the last film that is published on December 17th, 2021.
Conyers started cycling in 2017 with the main goal of getting local Strava QOMs. After an unexpected breakout season in 2018, she was chosen to represent Bermuda at the Caribbean Championships and qualified a spot for the Pan American Games in 2019.
Following this, Conyers decided to commit to cycling full-time in 2020 and hopes to be the first woman to represent Bermuda in Road Cycling at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
