This Week’s Routes: Trains and Towers
This week’s routes take us on a tour of Zwift worlds with routes that include towers and trains. Four races in four different worlds with four different powerups. Let’s goooo!
- Race 1: The 6 Train (1 lap – 6.4km)
One quick clockwise loop of Central Park’s inner roads.
- Powerup: Aero (1x)
- Race 2: Temples and Towers (5.286km, end at Rooftop KOM)
Start in Neokyo and climb up, up, up to finish at the Rooftop KOM banner. This is a very draftable climb, so use those wheels!
- Powerup: none
- Race 3: Bigger Loop (6.75km, ending at rock underpass heading into the Ghost Town)
Our flattest route of the day starts with a ride into the desert from downtown Watopia. Then pick up your ghost powerup at the rock arch and sprint for the custom finish line beneath the huge rocks as you enter the Ghost Town.
- Powerup: Ghost (1x)
- Race 4: London Loop (7km, near end of first Box Hill straightaway)
We wrap up our week with a punch finish partway up London’s Box Hill. How’s your 1-minute power?
- Powerup: Feather (1x)
Pack Dynamics 4.1
All Tiny Races are currently using Zwift’s experimental Pack Dynamics 4.1.
Read more about PD4.1 on this forum thread, and chime in there after your races to share your experience and help Zwift improve their pack dynamics!
Zwift displays preliminary race results in game when you cross the line, but points are computed after all four races are finished, with final results on ZwiftPower. (We have to do some data processing on our side to compute results, so if your rankings don’t show up right away, be patient.)
Riders will earn points based on finish position in each of the 4 Tiny Races. The category winner of each week’s series is the rider with the most points across their timezone’s 4 races. Here are the links for each timezone’s results on ZwiftPower:
- Zone 1 (9am GMT/5am EDT/2am PDT)
- Zone 2 (3pm GMT/11am EST/8am PDT)
- Zone 3 (9pm GMT/5pm EDT/2pm PDT/Sunday 7am AEST)
Tiny Race rules are simple, but still every week 6-8% of registered ZwiftPower racers get disqualified and removed from the final results. Don’t let that be you! Four races, four rules:
- You must have a ZwiftPower account, because final results are processed by ZwiftPower (learn how to sign up)
- No skipping then returning. These races are meant to be raced as a set of 4. If you need to leave early, that’s fine… but once you miss a race in your hour’s set of 4, don’t come back and race another or you’ll be disqualified from that race since you rested while others were racing! (Example: racing only races 1 and 2 is fine. Racing 1, 2, and 4 is not – you will be DQ from race 4. And if you race 2, 3, and 4, you’ll be DQ from all those races, since you skipped race 1!)
- Heart rate monitors are required.
- Smart trainer/smart bike or power meter required. ZPower/Virtual power is not allowed.
Join a Chat & Chill Cooldown
Immediately following each hour’s racing, we’ve scheduled 30-minute “Chat & Chill” events where riders from all categories can spin their legs together and chat about how it all went down. Find them at zwift.com/events/tag/tinyraces.
