You can choose to race or just complete it as an endurance training ride but, with double draft enabled, you should be able to find some wheels to work with and, if you get spat out of your category, there’ll be a slower one coming along behind to jump in with.
Categories are based on FTP w/kg
A: 4.0 – 6.0 w/kg FTP
B: 3.2 – 3.9 w/kg FTP
C: 2.5-3.1 w/kg FTP
D < 2.4 w/kg FTP
Please don’t sandbag, enter your correct category.
It’s Week 3 of this rotation so, a Climber’s route, as we race Ven-Top (20.9km/1539m).
Released with Zwift’s France map for the first-ever Virtual Tour de France, the “Ven-Top” route is named for the massive climb it contains: Mont Ventoux! This GPS-accurate model of the world-famous climb is by far the toughest ascent in game, climbing 1480 meters (4857′) from the beginning to end of the timed KOM segment.
