Fast Freddie Group Ride Feedback.


(Dan Crow) #1

Lots of fun following Freddie for a few minutes before being handily dropped.

My first thoughts/questions:

Was great being in that big old group! Thanks Zwift for pulling this off.

Q. Does drafting advantage get boosted when you’re in a group or is it the same as being directly behind a single rider?

Interview format was cool. It might have been nice if Freddie interacted with some of the riders around him during the ride. 

Lag: Did everyone else have a 20 second lag in the live stream vs. their zwift ride?  May be an east coast thing.

Speed.  May be an impossible task to keep to a preset pace, but it would’ve been nice to have been able to keep up for just a tad longer.  Then again, I’m old. Not your fault.

Thanks again. See you out there again. Would be interested in others impressions too.

Hi Dan, 

Thank you very much for your positive feedback, 

Q1 - Yes more riders in front of you = more ‘‘boost’’ you get. 

Q2 - Thanks for your suggestion we will do our best next time out.

Q3 - There is about 15 second delay and it’s completely normal and everyone gets this delay no matter where you are.

Q4 - We try to make most riders happy by setting 2,5w/kg but as you can imagine it’s impossible to make everyone happy, however we will lover the wattage for events like this down to 2w/kg so hopefully you will be able to keep up next time :slight_smile: What you can do in the meantime is practising drafting! RIDE ON!
