This weekend has a lot of high-attendance events, which is always fun! Raise funds for Buffalo bikes, join a big ride series… or try steering in a race for the first time. It’s all good!

Last week’s Zwift update included the ability to steer on all Zwift roads, if you have an Elite Sterzo Smart steering block. Those Sterzos are now arriving at Zwifters’ doorsteps, so it’s time to try steering in a race! Zwift automatically disabled steering in all scheduled races, since it provides an advantage. But they’ve created two special events where steering will be allowed (they are currently set to “no steering” as we write this, but certainly that will be fixed by race day).
Racers without steering abilities are encouraged to attend as well, to see what it’s like to race against steering riders. Anti-sandbagging (the green cone of shame) is also enabled for these events. Let’s have some fun!

This weekend is stage 3, inspired by Julian Alaphilippe and held on the France map. Choose from the long ride which takes you up the challenging La Reine route to Mont Ven-Top’s Chalet Reynard, or do the shorter ride on the flatter Casse-Pattes route.
