Zwift Tuesday Night Worlds Report 2015-10-27

D. Seib takes the Group A victory
As winter looms on the horizon, 33 riders joined this edition of the Tuesday Night Worlds on Zwift. Today's race was 3 laps of the Richmond World Championship Road Course, with the first quarter lap being a neutral rollout to allow the pack to group up. The relatively short race distance resulted in a high pace even on the flat sections.

In Group A, D. Seib managed to outpower C. Schumm to the line with M. Desrosiers taking the third place. A group of six riders managed to establish a gap over the first set of climbs. Riders in the group traded attacks, but the group managed to get to the Governor St. climb intact. M. Desrosiers set a very hard pace at the base, but D. Seib managed to catch him and counter the move. C. Schumm chased to within a 30m of Seib but ran out of road before the finish line. Desrosiers hung on for third.

J. Baumgardner outclassed the rest of the B group by hanging with the leaders to the end. N. Hetrick managed to stick with the chase group, taking second. A. McGregor was first of the rest of the B group, clinching the third podium step.

The high pace strung the C group out into groups of one or two riders as the wind blew them off the back of the pack. T. Schneider* stayed with the chase for more than two laps to outdistance the rest of the C riders. S. Flores took second place, with I. Stickney third.
