Is it possible to simultaneously complete this event and do a workout in erg mode?

Thanks!

In my case, i ask because I was hoping to make one of those rides be mostly recovery.

Now that I see that the bike is a dud, I may not do any of the rides, and definitely won’t be doing all three.

Do you have to start at the event start time (4 AM PST for me for example)

There are multiple times for each stage in a day, on the hour mostly.

Any news on the “Colnago V3Rs” bike? I’m told it will appear in the drop shop with a new update before this Friday.

I would have expected the Colnago would be an assigned bike, but I don’t see that listed either on Zwift or on ZwiftPower. There was no assigned bike for Haute Route France in September, although events with bike sponsors typically do.

It’s available for purchase now! 2/3 stars, and customizable color (although primarily black)

I’m gonna use the first round to get my Mega Pretzel badge, after doing the Uber with y’all last weekend!

Hope it works, the companion shows it is the route for the event, so it should work?

I think we will not get the route badge because it’s only a modified and shorter version of the mega pretzel

That’s right Eric. I meant you won’t get the badge if you stop at the finishline of the event after km 55

Expect for few short rises on the second route, the pretzel, after event finish if it was normal it is mostly down or flat back to normal route finish. Good cool down to get ready for third route. Starts Thursday afternoon for those who are in western Americas or Hawaii time zones on the sign in page but still route closes after 24hrs after first time slot goes off.

I rode over the top of the Epic KOM and can confirm you do get the Pretzel Route Achievement badge. I usually warm down anyway for 10-15 mins so it really was a no-brainier to keep rolling.

Pushed on to get my mega pretzel badge last night. Was pretty tough doing 50km solo having done the first 57km at event pace. Also starting at the start pend makes the route 111km. Luckily I was descending the volcano when the laptop battery ran out, so I could run upstairs for the power lead without stopping

JUST saw this so what are (Eric) and peoples thoughts? Eric I noticed the big wheels are only 5 seconds slower on the climb but much faster on the flats I see an argument for what the 858s foe everything? Or other choices I have 808s, 3.4, …

Hey Eric, I’m hearing a lot of mixed info about this… if you keep riding say the second Haute Route ride (pretzel), do you get the Pretzel badge? Thanks!

I rode the second stage and continued back to downtown. I can confirm, I got the badge.

After finishing stage 2, I road the rest of the pretzel route but didn’t get the badge. Is that a glitch or planned by Zwift?

Is Zwiftpower always this slow to come up with a GC? Zwift.com says results should be posted here: https://www.zwiftpower.com/league.php?id=660 but for most riders there hasn’t been an update since stage 1.

Glad it’s not just me that its not showing up for ! The women’s GC seems to be updated now though, I think zwiftpower has been struggling with the explosion of activities they have to process nowadays, a couple of months ago it was taking days for individual race results to be processed so it is improving

I now see the page showing it has been last updated 19 hours ago (think that’s only the second or third update since the start of the series) but it won’t load any results. For me this is the first time I’ve been interested enough to look at any GC on Zwiftpower so I can’t tell if this is business as usual or not though if it is I’m opting out of any GC objective. I thought Zwiftpower had been transfered to Zwift’s own servers so they could use all the money we’re paying them to keep things up and… Read more »

Given how this event was advertised, “See how you compare on GC”, the lack of up to date GC board is very poor. What is worse though is the silence from Zwift to those who want some news. If they have a problem then let us know or at least tell us you’re onto it. It has certainly tainted the event for me.
