Access Menu and Watch Events Without Starting a Ride

I would like to be able to access the game Menu (to visit Drop Shop, or change my avatar, etc.) without having to start a Ride. I also enjoyed watching the Zwift National Champs by following a particular rider in the race…but could only do this if I actually joined the event as a rider first. The “Just Watch” function does not give you any control over what you are watching - it’s very passive. By starting the event as a rider, I was able to click on various riders and see their data as well as experience the race from their perspective - fantastic! It would be great to be able to have these options in the Just Watch function instead of having to start a Ride.

Agreed! Especially if we want to improve the eSport viewing experience, being able to easily find and watch a rider you search for is critical.
