So where are the timed 10mile and 25 mile TT segments in game?

So the climbers get all their climbs as timed segments with jerseys.
The sprinters get timed sprint segments with jerseys.

Zwift releases an advertised as ‘for TT’ers’ new flat course addition to Watopia and we don’t even get our own 10 mile and 25 mile timed segments?!?!

What the ■■■■ Zwift?!?!? (why on earth is the forum censoring the word h311??)

B- ‘could do better’

I’m sure we can make one for you on Strava. Which course are you choosing for your time trials? Tempus or Tick Tock?

I think the priority for some is 100km and 180.25 Ironman length or a simple lap counter. I’m not sure how many cyclists do mile lengths as opposed to 25 and 40 km. We would all have to agree on a length.

Here is a triple lap of Tempus at 52.4 km: Triple Stack

Usually, within a week or two, there are hundreds of Strava sections. Star them and you will record your time every time.

Agreed. There should be in-game, timed segments of standard TT distances (e.g., UK TT standards). The new road is the perfect place to introduce this.

I’m sure there will be various tt races in all lengths. 10, 25, 40, etc.

I did a double out-and-back of the Tempus Fugit the other day. In both laps the return was a timed segment entitled Fuego Flats Reverse, but neither of the out legs were timed.

The request is for a permanent, always on, timed segment/course in the Zwift game for a TT of 10 miles and/or 25 miles. Just like the timed hilly course in Watopia, the volcano laps, the various KOMs, the sprint segments etc.

10 mile and 25 mile are the standard time trial lengths in the UK and make up the vast majority of races organised by CTT (Cycling Time Trials - the national organisation), with the odd 50 here and there. A beginner goal is to ride at ‘standard’ (20mph) for each of these distances. A big goal for a lot of tt’ers is to break the hour for a 25. So having a standard course for each of these would be a great asset.

The UK uses miles?

(Z Kryder) #9

Oh you are correct.
a bit out of the ordinary.

Why change?

(Mark) #10

what are kilometres?

(Michael) #11

Yeah, no one wants to spend the money to change all the maps, road signage etc.

Contrasting with, say, selling food where you can pass a law telling the shop they have to use kilograms and it’s their problem.
