Zwift Thursday Training Race Report 2015-10-08

More than 30 riders showed up for today's five lap Watopia training race. N. K. rode the A field off his wheel on the last lap with some incredible power bursts with GCN race winner C. Hoskin winning the sprint for second over J. Tempelaar. C. McLeod out-sprinted S. Tytgadt for the B group win, with R. Lindqvist following half a minute later. B. Afonso again took the C group honors (time for an upgrade?) with D. Los edging out M. Ede for second.

The large field resulted in a somewhat chaotic start that makes us all look forward to built-in race start mechanics in Zwift. Apologies to those who were further back at the start line. I hope the large field meant that most of you had a group to race against anyway. As I had a last-minute schedule conflict I did not see the progression of the whole race, but did note some interesting things. The entire A group stayed together to the finish this time, with 12 racers finishing within 15 seconds on the road. Further back, there was one large B group and two significant C groups that came to the finish together, leading to several interesting sprints.
