Innsbruckring cut-through / link

Hello,

Innsbruckring is my favorite course on zwift. During the recent TTT, a teammate of mine (@Stuart_Moore_DIRT_44) brought up an excellent idea…

We’d like to see a very short cut through added to the Innsbruck map, connecting the 90 degree bend after the lap banner with the road on the other side of the loop, just before the bridge and leg snapper. This very small addition would immediately allow for some great new courses on this map:

  1. A vicious Crit course which would include the snapper on repeat!
  2. A terrific figure 8 course on these roads

This would really help breathe some new life into this great map!

Thanks,
Brandon Peterson

And of course if Zwift HQ have time, the final IRL. Course lap climb could also be added at top of leg snapper.

Everyone loves some 19% gradient action surely

Heck, yes! Innsbruck is already my favorite guest world, and this would make it even better!

I like it too, good combination of flattish bits, a little climb and a big climb.

Great idea!!!

+1 for this one , the ability to have a shorter lap with the effort ramp and the steeper climb for training and race events would be a good add.

Support this totally, both bits, the link and this vicious steep climb.

Definitely need the bit going up to Hungerberg and Hötting - I’ve done that IRL. Great little hill that hurts.

There are other routes that could be included after this one too. For instance what we did for stage 1 of Haute Route Dolomites 2017 which was a Innsbruck-Innsbruck loop finishing opposite Ramada Tivoli (the tilted hotel).

Vote people! Vote!*

this is a very small change that Zwift should be able to do that would greatly enhance an already good world.

*I’m not really sure if voting makes any difference but it can’t hurt.

I find it mind-boggling that Zwift, which put in a major expansion to the London world years ago, despite enormously greater resources today is unable to implement even modest enhancements to its existing worlds. I’ve largely moved onto other platforms.

Innsbruck and Bologna each have obvious enhancements which could be done. Then the Japan world was announced as a new platform, which could become even bigger than Watopia, yet still nothing, except superficial route badges on the same compact map. There was a modest enhancement of Watopia in late 2020.

Indeed. The pace of development has been underwhelming, to say the least.

Some news coming tomorrow apparently, so keep your eyes peeled. Hopefully some sort of feature roadmap.

New set of wheels, a new groupset and a funky jersey incoming.

But what we really need is more socks.

And then nerfing said wheels a week later after they assign too high of a climbing and/or aero rating for them :rofl:

A zwift update is due soon… Any idea what it might be?

I can hazard a guess , disappointingly lacking any significant changes and certainly any features we have asked for .

New roads on Makuri, called Neokyo.

all those lights and neo colours are going to strobe pretty badly on my set up i fear!

The sun rays are bad enough

No way, radio tower sucks enough already.

And I like climbing.

But I do agree on the premise, the world’s worlds need expansion.
