I started a ride yesterday and selected that I wanted to ride with Diego. Had some issues when logging in actually joining the pace partner ride (other people have also posted about this issue) but once I got in, all seemed well.
For a good part of the ride when Diego made a turn, it seems that turn was auto-selected so my avatar would follow the route. But at some point when I was about 20 minutes in he would go left and my default selection would be to go straight – or something like that. When I wasn’t paying close attention basically he’d turn and I wouldn’t. I had to restart to find him again, twice.
I figured by joining a pace partner ride my avatar would automatically follow Diego until I explicitly tell her not to… though it seems that it’s the opposite, sometimes? It’d be great to be on rails with a pace partner the entire ride so I don’t have to watch the map so closely.
PS: Thank you team Zwift for Diego - his pacing is a perfect workout for me. Really enjoying and appreciating these new pace partners!
