Kristen Kulchinsky is a special type of rider. The American has been the number one ranked rider on ZwiftPower, won a stage in the Zwift Racing League - Women's Premier Division, and done a virtual Everesting on Zwift. She also once rode 100 miles on Zwift every day for the entire Christmas week. 

Kulchinsky is one of the favourites heading into this weekend's UCI Cycling eSports World Championships on Zwift, which finishes on a steep climb that will suit the lightweight American who finished the last race of this season's ZRL a close second behind current World Champion Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio on Watopia's steep Reverse Epic KOM.
