Definitely on board for personal, client-side ghosts.
Like when playing a driving videogame, when I cross the line, my previous fastest lap would also start riding.
As an alternative implementation to “full lap” ghosts, I’d like the option to have ghosts just on specific sections. i.e. my 30 day PR ghost for each of the Richmond sprints and climbs.
Also the option to set specific ghosts at fixed powers.
One option I don’t think anyone has mentioned is something that RowPro does; you can download a ride by someone else and compete against that. Again, client side would be fine for that.
It could also be interesting to have a “Voight bot” riding or something - that would be a capture of a lap ridden by Jens, but replayed as a bot for all to see.
Might be fun to see if there’s any GPS/power data from the actual WC races to replay as a bot and give people the chance to see how long they might have stuck with the pro peloton before being blown out of the back door…
