Re: Tour route 2020

https://www.cycling-challenge.com/wp-content/uploads/loze700.png ouch That's the climb from Courchevel which is the easier side. The tour is coming up from the Meribel side which has 15%+ pitches. This is the harder side: https://i7yvmm3nuh-flywheel.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Profil-...

Re: Debugging power dropouts

How far away is the Ant+ dongle from the trainer?
Is the trainer connected to any other apps by bluetooth?

Re: British Cycling sucks!!

The Tron bike is considered the fastest all round bike, and it is bloody hard work to earn it. Cheating his was to get it broke Zwift's ToS so potentially he should have been thrown off the platform before the qualifiers and therefore unable to compete at all. As you say, there is also then the prin...

Re: British champion gets busted for cheating

I mean, doesn't anyone deserve ridicule for entering any such event? Why? Ever had a go? It’s damn hard and loads of fun. If 179bpm average HR for over an hour can ever be fun. I’d enter this stuff if I was any good, which there is no danger of. It's just been demonstrated you don't need to be good...

Re: Drugs in other sports and the media.

So many ignorant luddites! E-Racing is just a different discipline of the sport, very much in its infancy, but one that has an advantage financially due to the ability to monetise it easily.

Is that why they’re all black?


Yes if they're using Gore shakedry fabric as the only colour is black, but they weren't all using that - plenty of other branded jackets being used.
