Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. That is super handy! Thanks
  2. I don't think you can import routes into Zwift? There are multiple options available on Rouvy, and it was also on FullGaz (in three parts, mind you) earlier in the year.
  3. I realise it does not compare to the real thing, but anyone else doing the virtual event/routes? http://knysnacycle.co.za/virtual-events-rouvy/ I see they've added that, if you had entered for the real event, can get free entry for this.
  4. Your first post specifically mentions "All the money in the bank". If it is not about losing the money at all, why specifically mention that then? Are the rules put in place by government the best it could be? Obviously not. Did they bungle the vaccine rollout? Yes. If the organisers' hands are tied due to the rules, that is not their fault. At least there was some warning, not like the Epic last year that was cancelled one or two days before.
  5. Didn't Jan Ullrich's team use some specific gas in their TT bike tyres at some stage? Around 1999. Can't remember if it was helium or not.
  6. I guess, if he starts at the front, and crosses the finish line 1st, but the rider that finishes just behind him started at the back of the group a few seconds later, then on the results the rider who started at the back would "win" on Racetec?
  7. Does it do the same if you, as a test, put the laptop right next to you, without the extension cable? Also, I understand some USB ports don't provide as much power as others, so maybe combined with the long cable the ANT+ dongle (I assume) isn't getting enough juice? I added a powered USB hub on the counter next to me, and the Bluetooth and ANT+ dongles plugged into it. No dropouts, except when you step on the long USB cable in the wrong place 🤦‍♂️
  8. So I did Stage 1 on Sunday evening, which was fine as it was just the flat 10.8km TT. Stage 2 last night, Nufenenpass, did not go so well. The first 20km is ok. Then the real climbing begins, and that 13km took me a further 1h23m! I'm going to be checking the next stages much more carefully before I decide on doing them...
  9. I should probably dust of my subscription - I see the Knysna Oyster Festival will use Rouvy this year for the virtual ride.
  10. Well, I had a bit of an enforced break, but the new world in Zwift helps. I'll do a 30min workout (like the new Workout of the Week), picking one of the new routes each time. And if the workout is too short to finish the chosen route, like the current Workout of the Week which is only 20min, then I just continue riding easy afterwards, turning the HUD off to enjoy the view. I am keeping an eye on the Adaptive Training from TrainerRoad. Once available I might consider switching, to get back in shape for CTCT and Amashova
  11. It's not quite that hard! 🤣 An average speed of 36.4km/h should get you to the line with a few seconds to spare. You need luck, a good group (or be super strong yourself, I guess), and be able to climb Edinburgh Drive, Smitswinkel, Chapmans and Suikerbossie (all between 1.6 and 1.9km in length) in not much more than 5 minutes without being so smashed that you can't keep up with the group on the rest.
  12. Ah, a wheel-on trainer. One extra tip then: don't make the same mistake I made and use old tubes with sealant in 😉 Unless you like cleaning sticky goo off your new trainer.
  13. Try a few different programs to see what you prefer (and works with your setup), most have a trial period. And have a good fan. What trainer did you get? Using PC, ipad, Apple TV?
  14. All the longer ones are still pending for me. My legs went on strike half-way up the Alpe the one time I tried Four Horsemen. Not sure I care enough about some badges to do that (or worse) to myself again
  15. Seems quite likely. Hopefully it launches this week Otherwise they won't have a lot of time to fix the inevitable new bugs before those events start in June. https://zwiftinsider.com/tokyo-teases/
