12/9/2018 Hounds and Hare — Reverse Watopia Dropped out
Link to race
Okay, this is the second time that this race got to me. Looking back at it, I’m not really seeing why. The pace wasn’t out of my capacity at all. It wasn’t a cake walk, but I should have been able to handle it.
I know that I let up too soon. And I did race the day before.
I also am not really sure of the tactics of the group. They seemed to all be bunched up towards the front. You were either in the draft or right off the back. The conventional wisdom seems to be that you “work together and take turns.” But in Zwift you can’t steer. I wonder if it wouldn’t be wiser for someone to go out at a steady 4.5 W/kg and everyone stay behind. And then that guy drops out and someone else takes up the pace. I don’t know. They also pushed when they didn’t have to, (like through some of the tunnel). I don’t know. I have to do this race more to get it right.
