Video: Zwift FutureWorks Pace Partners: New Drop Multiplier Game

Have you ridden with the Zwift FutureWorks Pace Partners recently? If you stay close to A. Anquetil, B. Brevet, C. Cadence, and D. Diesel, they now reward you by multiplying the Drops you earn while riding. The longer you’re with them, the bigger the multiplier!

In the video below, Shane Miller tries out this new game and gives some advice. He jumps into a ride with C. Cadence and stays as close as he can to the pacer bot. What’s it like to be in a pace group? How easy or hard is it to keep that number climbing? Watch the video and see!

Zwift FutureWorks Pace Partners: Details // New Drop Multiplier Game!

For more information, check out this in-depth post about the drops multiplier game. To ride with a Zwift FutureWorks Pace Partner, you can select their name and choose “Ride With” when starting your ride. Or if you spot them while free-riding in Watopia, go ahead and catch their wheel to join them!

Updates

Since this video was created, Zwift has added beacons above the pace partners, making it easier to see where they are. They also reduced the max Drops multipler to x2.0. Shane discusses these changes and a few more in his latest video.

It’s the group dynamics that gets you in the end with Coco, 2.5w/kg easy enough with a small group, but once the group grows it becomes a meat grinder until a large group spawns off the front (and they think Coco has crashed as they’ve shot so far ahead!) and the group settles down for a bit. I’ve managed 2 rounds of x2.5 top before either my legs go or I run out of time, as I usually let Coco catch me up, so can be riding for an hour plus already, nicely warmed up though 🙂

Rode with Coco for the first time last night. It was a good workout. The beacon was helpful, but perhaps a different / brighter color? I found that the current blue gets lost frequently in all of the “thumbderstorms” 🙂

I think that we need two bots on the same route but with a .5-1 watt/kg difference in pace. This will allow people to jump on and off and get an excellent work out and push themselves.
