Adam rubs shoulders with the big boys and comes up smelling of Lotus flowers?
As we all probably know, the Giro d’Italia has started. An Individual TT Prologue got things going. A mere 8km. So what’s the fuss? Well the last 2 km are straight up. Up a wall. A wall of 10% average and 16% at max. Nice.
What you may not know is that us mere mortals can ride that Prologue stage. Zwift have recreated it exactly on their virtual riding/racing platform and for the first 3 days of the Giro you can pit yourself against the Pros (and your ride buddies). Being a “non-competitive” bunch, some of TPH Racing have given it a nudge with the remainder of the team being “nudged” to give it a go also!
As it stands Rob has bragging rights, but with Adam, Stu, Alex and Molly still to have a dig and with Keeds giving it another go will he stay on top?
If you are on Zwift, give it a go yourself. There’s one common words to everybody’s description of the stage. “Brutal”. The hardest 8 km you’ll ever ride? You decide.
