It is all to play for in the final race of the Super League Triathlon eSports Cycling Series.
The men’s Series is delicately poised heading into the last event and a grandstand finish is in the offing. Here’s all you need to know…
Extremely. The General Classification leaderboard could barely be any tighter. Australia lead the way but only three seconds separate them from third placed Canada, with Great Britain lying second.
There is also the small matter of the points section in the race. Australia took the win in the first event. Great Britain levelled it up in the second. Will either of them secure a deciding blow or will somebody else swoop in?

An awful lot of pride…oh, and quite a lot of money as well.
The leading team in the General Classifications after the final race picks up a cool $4,000 for their efforts. It’s half of that for finishing second and $1,000 for third.
There is also a $1,000 team bonus on the line for the nation that takes the most points in each race, and prize money for the first three individuals across the finishing line. In short, there’s plenty to play for.
The last race of the Series is being held on Zwift’s Watopia course. It features six sprint and KOM sections to earn points.
The top two riders from each team across the finish line have their times combined and added to the General Classification leaderboard for the overall standings.
There isn’t any money on offer for the unofficial individual leaderboard, but all the points awarded in sprints and KOMs, plus points for the top ten across the line, are counted.
Australia’s David Mainwaring has a lead at the top, but with so many points on offer in the last race the likes fo British duo Alistair Brownlee and Mark Bucklingham in second and third respectively will fancy their chances of catching him.
The race is live on Thursday June 23 from 7pm BST. Will McCloy and Chris McCormack will bring you all the action on Super League’s YouTube channel.
