The UCI Road World Championships are under way in Yorkshire, England. Just as Zwift did with Richmond and Innsbruck, we virtual cyclists have the luxury to ride a replica of the final lap indoors – without rain and pools of water that the TT riders have had to encounter in real life these days.
|Unfortunate course of events for some in U23 TT yesterday.|
Those who have ridden both the actual course and its virtual equivalent, say that Zwift does very good job with gradients and the course profile. On the other hand, I don't like the candy-like, über-beautiful Zwift-scenery. The contrast with the rainy England has been exceptionally stark.
For once in my life I feel like a pro, after having done some laps in Yorkshire.
This evening I went to my sweat cave to have a short ride and chose Yorkshire. Even though I raced in Watopia yesterday and the legs were tired, I couldn't resist trying to improve my PB.
I did the Yorkshire 2019 segment in 22.22 which gave me a position 2818 /59174. Being among the fastest 5% is nice but nothing to write
