The drafting seems to work better (but it was probably already fixed in the previous version). I’m using a KICKR and personally I’m still not impressed with the realism on the climbs. If I understand correctly the speed is estimated purely from the power reading of the KICKR and has no relation with the actual cadence/speed at the wheel. The resistance is calculated based on the rider weight and the grade.

When climbing the 10% sections, very often the resistance seems insufficient at a lower gear. I mean spinning 110prm with a 50x20 seems unrealistic to me on a 10% grade. I would be interested in doing a field test on a similar grade and compare the numbers.
