  • Is Zwift capable of delivering an eSports World Championship?

Below, you’ll find answers to these questions, the opinions of professional riders and the UCI president on virtual bike racing, the advantages and problems of eSports virtual bike racing and current eSport bike races :slightly_smiling_face:

I started reading it Chris, but I find the font you’ve used really hard to read so I gave up.

I think that must be a relatively recent change because I’ve read your blog in the past with no problem. Generally speaking I don’t think serif fonts work well on the Web at small sizes.

Daren, have another look at the article. I’ve changed the base font and I reckon it is easier to read.

Yeah I think that’s much better! Will read it after dinner. :smiley:
