A few take away from this. Firstly, this was the most chaos that I’ve seen in a zwift event since I started using my SO’s computer for better FPS at the start.
Start: last row at the end of the pier. That’s a LONG run up that doesn’t count for anything when the folks at the front are doing 6 w/kg off the start line.
After the first two laps we started lapping people by the hundreds. It was like a flood. First a trickle of riders and then so many, you don’t even know where your avatar is. We were doing 4:50-4:55 laps, the last couple laps I had no idea who I was “racing” with and who I was lapping since we all basically look the same. The only indication that i had was the nearby riders and the names that I remembered. It remained that way all the way to the finish. I guess a couple thousand riders can form a 4km long chain… maybe more start times would be useful still?
We did the stage in about 43 minutes, lapping fast enough that we weren’t getting power ups on every lap. Maybe it’s time to decrease the minimum time between power up?
Finally at the finish, you get the results, woohoo, then the pop up asks me if I want to stay in Watopia or go to Watopia. While it is amusing, I would have figured that you guys would have fixed that by now.
