    Tempted to get back on zwift here - just because coworkers are online now.
    Wasn't a huge fan last time - but have no issue doing 6hr trainer sessions and staring at my power numbers and/or netflix. lol.

    8000 people in one ride? Holy shit. I guess there are 5000 signed up for the one at noon.

    I was on the 12 pm ride. Loaded fine, rode fine, finished it. Tried to exit... nothing. Just waits at the save & exit screen with the circle thingy looping over the button. This was on pc. Left it for like 15 mins, same. Opened the companion app, looks like I’m still logged in.

    So lost the credit, the drops, and my two weekly goals which was met during the ride

    Ugh, that sucks. The 4PM ride only had ~1200 people in it, but lots of participants were saying they crashed out of the first ride (or first AND second ride). I tried to get to the front as fast as possible to thin out how many people were on my screen, in an attempt to prevent lag. Started mid pack on the pier so had to sit at 350w for 4 minutes to slowly drag my way to the front. Ended up getting into a good group of about 6 once the Epic KOM started. Brisk pace up the whole climb. Pulled a few more people back on the descent keeping the power on, then kept the group together for a more reasonable pace up Volcano KOM. Ended up sprinting and grabbing 25th place. 13th place on zwiftpower.com which eliminates anyone not registered or not on a power meter.
    Fitness is starting to come back - 296W average (300W weighted) for 1:16, which makes for 4.1w/kg average. Likely a new indoor PR.

    I'm drinking a lot more scotch lately. Have you tried that? It seems to be working for me so far.

    Maybe I’ll give that a shot. Sourdough and liquid sourdough don’t appear to give me any gains

    I saw the two of you signed up for the same ride. I was tempted to go again, but that will destroy my chance to even finish any of the remaining ones. I'll try to do the two remaining stages despite "missing" stage 1. Think I'm two away from 25 times up Alpe Du Zwift, and I haven't got the Pretzel route achievement yet. Good to know there are other people suffering with you.

    Niels doesn’t suffer, is the problem!

    Apparently as long as you do day 3 you get the achievement... just get on it! I’m not crushing the hills as I want to walk the next day!

    I do suffer, but the faster you get the shorter you suffer for in these events.

    I wonder if there will be a make-up day like they did with Tour of Watopia. I'll probably do stage 2 today, but at an easy pace. Then maybe another hammer fest tomorrow for the long one. Looks like the pretzel should take about 2 hours?

    Stage 2 today.. reminder to check your bikes and how well they’re on your trainer. Looked down halfway up the Alpe and my thru axle had come undone... that woulda been bad on a carbon frame

    You're obviously putting in too much power - that's why the axle backed off.
    Probably doing stage 2 at 4PM. Might go E group (5 minute later start) to prevent wanting to chase the fast guys.

    Edit: Did stage 2 at 2PM. Started in D group (5 minute delay) and ended up being graced with an appearance of lilmira koyotes!

    Looking at the results, 4 w/kg average is easy pace for you... damn...

    4w/kg is working pretty hard for me. I rode stage 2 harder than initially planned but legs felt OK and it was only a small lead group that I wanted to draft to get to the base of the climb quicker. Today's stage will be a longer ride, so I'll put ego aside and actually use this is a training ride instead of trying to hang with the fast people.
