Draftig over top of hills


(Frode Vullum [V]) #1

I think it is very difficult to draft another person when coming from a climb and into a downhill. In matter of seconds the guy in front suddenly get a big lead and I have to push real hard to follow. Often followed by a huge overshoot when I do manage to close the gap. I am using a Kickr.

Hi Frode,

Thanks for the feedback. I’ll be sure to pass this on to a dev to see if this is as intended or something they are currently working on.

When I compare my stages powermeter against Zwift power readings just over the hill I see that Zwift power drop to 70-90W for a few seconds when my stages still puts out 220+W. This happes over all tops. Maybe that is why I struggle to keep up with riders in front of me? Did this test yesterday.
