My live stream recap…

I joined the last week of the Olympic Virtual Race Series as it headed to the Flatland Loop in the new MAKURI ISLANDS world on Zwift.

New Route for me & did not expect that downhill finish to catch up so fast. 6th place in the sprint finish definitely one for the heavier riders but would make a great TTT event.

Weapons of choice:

  • Bike Choice: Specialized Venge S-Works: the most aero frame in game
  • Wheelset: Zipp 858/Super9

A large start group in a chase down format with A cat (fastest) riders going last. The task at hand? Try to stay ahead of the category behind you while catching the category in front of you.
