Now that the Tour of Watopia has concluded, routes on The Southern Coast of Watopia are restricted to Zwifters at level 10 or higher, for both cyclists and runners. Zwifters (both cyclists and runners) who aren’t yet at level 10 can still enjoy the new roads by joining an event taking place on the Southern Coast, or by using the “Ride With” feature to join a Zwifter at level 10+ who is riding those routes.
Improved visibility of sprint markers on the Shorelines and Summits route.
Resolved an issue on the Going Coastal route that made the horizon appear to flicker.
Performance improvements to Watopia’s Southern Coast to provide a better cycling and running experience.
In Workout details, replaced Stress Point (SP) with Training Stress Score (TSS®). The number value will remain the same. TSS® is a registered trademark of TrainingPeaks.
While what Shuji said is true: we have nothing official right now for announcements, I can say that we’re making good progress and have been since September.
We’ve been validating scores against a series of criteria, with each successive iteration we make driving toward our first goal of getting it to the public’s hands to test. We have scores in hand today, they’re just not yet to where they need to be to do testing that’s worthwhile (for you as a Zwifter to have a good experience and for us to have good enough feedback).
For now, no concrete timeline for testing and release, but I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made and hopeful for the future.
Evo CC have been running Repack Rush super sprint races for a few weeks, that don’t require you to have a steering device, albeit you will hit “slow down pads” and be unlikely to keep up with those using their steering decently.
Got a new Sterzo Smart for 39,99€ a few days ago at one of the major German online bike part shops (not sure if I am allowed to post the name as this might be considered illegal marketing). Not really budget, but surely well below the regular price. They still have plenty on stock. And chances are good that other stores might sell discounted units during the Black Friday frenzy as well.
