Bounced to side of road when using powerup [July 2023] [SOLVED]

Just rode the Stage 2 of the Race the Worlds series.

Did ZHQ decided to troll Zwift Play users?

The only Power Up given during the race is the Drafting Boost. Which is the powerup breaking draft once activated.

So basically Zwift Play user are getting punished on this race.

I had this issue yesterday too during stage 2 of the race the worlds, hugely frustrating tbh. I had heard on a youtube that this was a problem on Loch Loop so I kind of expected to happen but drove me nuts when it did. For me, I got pushed to both sides of the road so either to far right or the far left. Anywhere but in the draft.

Whilst cycling with Miguel today on the flat route. On the Sprint Forward segment I applied the Draft Boost power up and immediately lurched to the left in to the centre of the road. Tried to rectify and end up like a drunk cyclist weaving all over the place at one point.

It been behaving like this for weeks with power up’s.


Here it is happening in a regular ride. Zwift Play steering on but not touched at all during the video except to press the power up button…
