4:15 - 4:45 PM: Road Code Sneak Peek: World’s Biggest Pro Cycling Teams Go Web3

Road Code sprints to be the ultimate destination for cycling fans. Powered by Team Jumbo Visma, Trek-Segafredo, and EF Education-Easypost and the rest of the world's top Pro Cycling teams, it utilizes Web3 to unify the sport on one single platform.

Previously, fragmented race organizers and sponsor dependency made it difficult for fans to engage and for the sport to evolve. In partnership with Hedera and The HBAR Foundation, Pro Cycling now has the chance to take control and set the course for the sport.

With all-access content from teams and riders, fans can be right there with them as they battle for podiums and jerseys on the world's toughest routes.

Leemon Baird, inventor of hashgraphs and co-founder of Hedera will join to give an introduction to the technology behind Road Code.
