Zwiftcast Episode 61

Zwiftcast Episode 61

Episode 61 of Zwiftcast is here, leading with the biggest news in indoor cycling of all time–the purchase of Dutch trainer Tacx company by American gizmo giant, Garmin. Simon, Shane and Nathan, with some help from DC Rainmaker, debate what this could mean for Zwift – and Zwifters.

The Zwiftcasters spend a good deal of time on this – and come up with a whole raft of theories, before moving on to discuss the continuing story of World Choice on the Zwift platform and how at times, the options available to Zwifters produce what some might seem to be surprising results.

Next : have we seen a glimpse of the Watopia extension? And if we have, is the publication of a snippet hidden deep in the code justified?

The podcasters move on to discuss the burgeoning and highly exciting racing scene, with the launch of the KISS Women’s Super League series, the entry into e-racing of global telco giant Telefonica and analysis of whether the improving coverage of virtual bike racing is a tantalizing sign of the possible future.

Finally, the chaps shed a tear for Jarvis Island, officially now consigned to history – we’ll never see the little island again.

We hope you enjoy listening.

Simon Schofield

Simon lives in Leeds, in the North of England, where grey, wet winters drive him indoors to ride. An early Zwift adopter, one day he idly wondered whether the fast-growing virtual cycling world would sustain a podcast. Fifty-plus episodes later - he has his answer - there's always something to talk about! Simon's a journalist by trade and spent many years working in TV production. He's at his happiest either drafting a big pack in Watopia or plunging down an Alpine descent with the sun in his face and the wind at his back.
