Top 5 Zwift Videos: Tour de Zwift, Apple TV Tip, and Ramp Testing

This week’s Top 5 videos feature two Tour de Zwift participants who use this event as a personal challenge. Whether you’re at the front of the field or the back, you can find something – or someone – to motivate you. Then, DC Rainmaker shares an accessory that could make it easier for you to Zwift with Apple TV! Finally, make your indoor training a little more comfortable before taking a ramp test.


Linda Messinger (“Zwifting With Granny”) has a bad start to a Tour de Zwift stage, but she keeps on going even when she’s alone. Then she finds a small group to ride with after a few miles. Every time she thinks they’ll drop her, she digs deep, and she manages to stay with them until the finish!

The Tour de Zwift is in full swing, and Junior Zwifter “Cycling CB” is excited to get started! (We can’t blame him for getting confused about whether it’s a group ride or a race. There are no official race events in the tour this year, but there are steady-paced “Rookie Rides.”)

Regarding the 6 comfort tips video, I’m interested to know more about raising the front wheel a bit. In doing so, would I also need to make other adjustments to the bike fit to adjust to the slight raise, or is the idea to raise the wheel to compliment the existing fit and make riding more comfortable?

I think the point is to make the front wheel level with the back (or where the back would be based on the positioning of the cassette on a direct drive trainer). Essentially, it mimics the fit you would have on the road. Without a riser, the bike is usually positioned at a slight downhill.

At the moment, the video linked in the FTP test area takes you to a video about virtual gearing vs. IRL gearing.

The fifth video link was to Patrick Lino discussing Trainer Difficulty and gearing. Not much to do with the Ramp Test or Michael Taber.
