This is quite incredible, the Canyon/Sram Women's Team (you know, the ones with the jerseys that everyone wants) is holding try-outs on Zwift for their 2017 team. It was announced during the TDU Ride-Along hosted by Canyon/Sram pro rider Tiffany Cromwell. More details below:

New Canyon//SRAM team to use Zwift to recruit new team rider

Do you have what it takes to join the new Canyon//SRAM women’s team in 2017? There’s no need to sharpen your CV, though, all you need to do is get on Zwift and demonstrate your potential.

The search for the new recruit through the popular Zwift virtual reality training website will begin in March 2016, with female amateur riders from around the world invited to try-out.

Ronny Lauke is the Canyon//SRAM team director. "The world is full of young cyclists with raw talent that we may not be noticing,” he adds. “That’s a huge problem for the sport and we want to challenge this as much as possible. Of course, there are other criteria to becoming a pro cyclist, like attitude, bike handling and a good tactical brain, but without an exceptional engine you won’t get too far! This is going to be an exciting adventure with Zwift."
