Resuming after a crash

Free ride, half way through Alp du Zwift, a hard crash/kernel panic on OSX. You’d think Zwift would be generating well-formed fit files from which it could resume a ride from so if you experience a crash you can more or less leave off from where you had an issue and complete your ride albeit with a small hiatus.

But no, you’re left having to copy out a malformed fit file having to fix it with “www dot fitfiletools dot com” and not even able to resume the ride from where you left off.

Luckily it wasn’t a long-ride so I wasn’t too bothered, but I find it a little ridiculous that the desktop app at least doesn’t have better crash protection/a ride resuming feature in it… crashes do happen, sure they’re not frequent, but they do happen.

I had to resume a workout and now I have two incorrect activities and corrupt fit files. In my feed page one of the workouts actually shows that I rode 50k in 2h… but the fit file only shows 7 minutes. The support ambassador said its normal and I must trust him because he is an enthusiast. Well done for a paid service…
