Race, Ride or Conquer
Sun 16 January @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am GMT
The Hotchillee Race, Ride or Conquer Sunday Endurance Series is a series of Sunday morning rides that will build in difficulty and duration through the winter. We’ll tick off some of those bigger route badges on Zwift together.
They’ll be running throughout the winter and roll out at 0830.
We’ll start out with 90-120 minute routes and build over winter to some of the real biggies.
If you want to be at the pointy end, join Race (A) at 0830 and see how hard you can push it. If you drop off the pace, you can always fall into one of the slower groups coming along behind.
If you want a good solid pace endurance ride, join Ride (C) at 0833. This group will be led at about 2-2.5 w/kg – maybe pushing to 3 w/kg on climbs but then re-grouping, by one of our experienced Hotchillee Ride Captains. This week rachcolley will be at the helm.
If you’d prefer to take things at your own pace, maybe with your own group of likeminded riders – then join Conquer (E) at 0836.
The idea, just like a good sportive, is, no matter what your pace, you should find some wheels to ride with and, with double-draft enabled, should be able to hang on and tick that route off.
You’ll be heading to Watopia this weekend to tackle Quatch Quest (45.9km/1683m).
Begin by turning left into Titans Grove (reverse direction) and enjoy your roller-coaster ride through the sequoia forest. Hit the reverse KOM section hard if you’d like, but keep in mind the much longer and steeper Epic KOM and Alpe climbs are coming up!
At the end of Titans Grove hang a right onto the Fuego Flats road, descending across the bridge and turning left onto the road to the Epic KOM. Climb up through this mountain pass, but this is only a warmup for the larger Alpe climb to come.
After descending from the Epic KOM, turn left toward the Mayan Jungle, get on the Jungle Circuit in the reverse direction by turning left at the dirt fork, then take another left to head up the Alpe. From there it’s just one long climb to the Alpe banner, which is where the route ends.
