The Dads Inside Riding Trainers (DIRT) Indoor Specialists community is comprised of two Zwift Racing Teams (Professional - Indoor Specialist, Amateur - DIRT) and an awesome community of riders that love all things Zwift cycling. It was founded in 2018 by the three DIRT Fathers: Jason Stern, Ken Nowell, and Doug Mastroianni.
