Episode 53 of Zwiftcast has been released, and it’s all about Innsbruck… and Mark Cavendish.


The Zwiftcasters are back with an episode dominated by discussion around the launch of the new course on Zwift, the replication of the UCI Innsbruck Worlds Circuit.

There’s a feature with one of the HQ development team revealing how the artists and devs went to enormous lengths to get the detail of the real world-based course spot on.

Simon, Shane and Nathan discuss their reaction to the course; whether it’s the best choice for the platform in the light of its stated aims to recruit more recreational cyclists and, in a lively exchange, the trio speculate on why Zwift continue to deny the userbase the ability to switch worlds easily.

There’s also some philosophising about cake and icing – you need to listen!

We have an interview with Zwifter Mark Cavendish who talks in some detail about his relationship with the fame and his dislike of cheats…

Finally, Simon chats to Greg Leo, co-host of the new Zwift podcast for racers, In The Pens about a tough summer for racing and whether the race scene on Zwift can bounce back.

We hope you enjoy listening.
