Alex Hoehn of Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling tackles virtual racing with Zwift

From Alex: Last weekend I competed in my first virtual race through Zwift. It was definitely a challenge trying to learn everything about virtual racing as it is very different than racing on the road. One of the biggest challenges I had was with drafting. It is a very simple thing to do on the road but on your trainer you don't feel any wind so it can be hard to know when you can pedal softer in the group. Zwift racing is also one of the best workouts you can do because you cannot let up on the pedals uphill or downhill or you will get dropped. No going back to the cars to get bottles during these races! Can't wait for the next race.
