During lockdown, some Zwifters have taken on some seriously massive challenges! Take South African pro cyclist Willie Smit for example. The Burgos–BH rider headed to Watopia on April 14, where he tackled a continuous 1,000-kilometer ride, covering every meter in 37 hours. After broadcasting certain parts of the ride live on YouTube, he posted the final data on Instagram: 8,150 meters climbed. 17,081 calories burned. Kev chats with Willie about the next-level undertaking in this episode.
