Warren Muir

I started riding on Zwift in 2016, due to the cold winters in Canada. I have a sports background in ice hockey playing at the Junior A and College level. The competition of racing on Zwift hooked me. I loved being able to try new tactics and push myself as I have never done before because another race on zwift is only minutes/hours away. 

I'm currently the Supervisor of an Interventional Radiology Department, I can work all hours of the day and night due to the acute setting of the hospital and being on-call. Zwift has kept me competitive with its workouts and flexible racing schedule.

I have just had my most successful road cycling season ever, finishing 6th at the Canadian Pro National Time Trial championships and even beating a rider that went to the Tour de France in 2022. I'm looking forward to focusing on the new Premier Racing League, and getting to know my WLC teammates!

Jan Steinmann 

During my youth I started competing for state titles in Tabletennis until I focused on cycling during my last year at school.

Mountainbiking then became my passion and was followed by many adventurours trips around the globe which led me into competing in cross country and marathon racing.

Once familiar with racing, the Roadbike and Zwift became my thing. Starting to train virtually it instantly became an addiction and  I started to race in the Premiere Division for 2 seasons. Now with a new Team and a new language it’s a challenge which I choose deliberately and Iam looking forward to compete and enjoy our time together!

Bjørn Andreassen

I am the e-cycling World Champion. I started Zwifting in 2020 when the COVID-19 hit and there were no IRL races. After that, I have been very active in the dark and cold winter months. Normally I ride Zwift for the best Danish team, PoAuto Ceramicspeed, but this season I choose to step it up and ride the Grand Prix for Wahoo Le Col. This season I spent most of the summer traveling around with the Danish U23 MTB National team to most of the worldcups and other UCI MTB races in the EU. I ride Cyclocross, Gravel, Road, Zwift and Mountainbike.

"I discovered zwift during the pandemic in 2020 after several seasons in elite categories in France.

I immediately appreciated the efforts and especially the races.

I progressed to become one of the best specialists in my country. I participated in the world championships, won some great races.

Today I found a balance between work, my high-level road season and now "professional" e-cycling with strong team and great riders !

Ben Meer

This is my first ZGP and I’m really excited to race for WLC.  I’m married to my wife Rylie and we have two sons, Lochlan (5.5yo) and Greyden(3.5o). We live in Columbus, Ohio (USA). In what seems like a previous life I raced half-iron and Ironman triathlons. I was a 5x Kona qualifier and half-iron world championship qualifier. I’ve won multiple state titles in road racing and TT. I mostly race gravel now and the occasional road race when they happen. 
I got into Zwift after Grey was born during the pandemic in 2020. I started racing with WLC in January 2023.  I love climbing and TTT. Hoping to not embarrass myself and I’m excited for my boys to “watch Dad race on tv.”

Hi, Im Jamie and this is my first year racing in the prem division for wahoo le col. Throughout university, I competed in triathlon with the nottingham and then Stirling University performance team before moving to cycling due to running injuries. I have always loved long rides out in the hills of the Peak District and Stirling and am currently racing the UK hill climb circuit, but after winning the wahoo le col club championships I started taking more of an interest in zwift and have decided to tackle a full season with the wahoo boys and i cant wait to get stuck in!
