Join the famous Hotchillee Gain Train! A hare and hounds style ride with 3 carriages to choose from with guaranteed spicy finish.
This week’s course is X5 laps of Lutece Express (36.7km/223m)
What is it?
Firstly, IT’S NOT A RACE but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy pace no-drop ride. It’s a paced “Category +” Hare and Hounds where you will be working predominately at the upper end of your category and hanging on for as long as you can in search of those gains.
What are the paces?
Paces are based on what the Ride Leader for each group will average and our leaders are pretty accurate – check on ZwiftPower afterwards.
Buffet Class (D+) Leader will average 2.4 w/kg (departs at 1830)
Second Class (C+) Leader average 3.1 w/kg (departs at 1834)
First Class (B+) Leader will average 3.7 w/kg (departs at 1836)
