Workout mode while doing event

Most of my rides on Zwift are workouts and I follow a training plan. I also like taking part in events e.g. Tour of Watopia etc. There’s actually no way to do both in Zwift currently.

What I end having to do is run Trainerroad on my tablet and have this control my smart trainer in ERG mode then do the event with Zwift running on my PC. I then get my daily training done plus get the achievement of taking part in the event e.g. jersey and or badge. I’m not particularly interested in where I place.

There should be a way within Zwift to be in workout mode plus be able to do the event.
