See anyone who fancies at the start line for beach loop at 19.40?Posted 4 months ago
So many zrl events – that normal?Posted 4 months ago
I keep on getting kicked out of Watopia into London for some reason? The 19:40 link isn’t working either.Posted 4 months ago
I don’t think any type of meet-up is working. Seems to allow freeride only.Posted 4 months ago
I think zwifts Nas maybe wasn’t backed up so events have all been qbit-locked or some suchPosted 4 months ago
Meet up not working either. I’m riding with the B pace partner in WatopiaPosted 4 months ago

OFFICIAL RACE ORGANISERS STATEMENT
Unfortunatley it looks like something went wrong with Zwift tonight. It could be they overloaded the servers with ZRL, TdZ and STW but it is also possible that 14 hamsters in Zwift HQ fell of their wheels. As Race Director I definitley did not change the safety car rules at the last minute after it looked like Savoyad was going to beat me!
So anyway I have sent 14 STW hamsters and Drac’s iPad over to California so hopefully will be sorted for next week.
This race will be voided. I can re-run it the week after La Reine (which works out as half term for most of the country) but wouldnt count any points for this – just bragging rights!
Hopefully back again with no issues for the double header next week. Fingers crossed!Posted 4 months ago
Thanks Robbo. I think your statement pretty much sums it up! 😜Posted 4 months ago
Cheers Robbo. According to Strava, my neighbour did the TDF event at 7pm so it must’ve gone to sh!t shortly after that!Posted 4 months ago
Managed to join a ZHR Masters race at the same time as the STW start. No idea why one worked and the other didn’t. It was pretty brutal, C’s and D’s in the front group pushing some massive numbers. Lost the lead group after 30 seconds. Oh well, good effort anyway Robbo. Till next time!Posted 4 months ago
In retrospect I was very lucky with the race voided. 15mins after our start time my laptop died from 0% battery!
Turns out I’d forgotten to plug it back in when I moved it over the weekend.
So if Zwift was working properly, that would have been me out of the race. So dark cloud for thousands of Zwifters was a silver lining for me.Posted 4 months ago
Thanks Robbo. I spent 15 minutes howling at the ipad because I thought I’d done something wrong (first ever race you see) then realised there were many grumpy zwifters in watopia tonight.
Still, had an hour spare so used it. At the very least I’ve now proved I can do an hour on the trainerPosted 4 months ago
Well that was a shame! See you all next week for hopefully round 2Posted 4 months ago
Ha! Well that was funny!
Had a WiFi cock-up so legged it inside to reset the extender.
Then no join button so restarted Zwift, removed meet-up, re-added from original link.
Restarted Zwift 3 times. No joy.
Legged it inside to grab laptop. Come on….come on! Time ticking…..none of my devices would connect…..bugger not plugged in the dongle.
Missed the start, but looks like it was a non-starter anyway.
I did a relatively hard ride for 30 mins then called it a day.
Better luck next week! Starting on a double header 🤣Posted 4 months ago
Such a frustrating evening. ZRL was stuffed up as well. Ah well, managed some TTT practice in a meetup instead.Posted 4 months ago
@nixie, i saw you catching me heading back towards town…. i thought “i may jump on with him”… then you and the lads came past me showing 4.9w/kg… i let you go 🙂
Was a shame the race didn’t happen though, i was looking forward to it.
As i stated earlier, it’s likely it will have been my only one of the series, i’ve got an event coming up and racing doesn’t really fit in for me at the moment in terms of killing my legs, slow and steady wins the day is more where i am currently.
I’ll be watching the results with interest though.Posted 4 months ago
i wish i had the option to ‘let people go’ that are riding at 4.9w/kg….. the reality is i wouldnt be able to keep up!! 😀
Last night was very disappointing, but such is life. Will be looking forward next weeks double header!Posted 4 months ago

it wouldn’t have been for long if i had…. hence me letting him go 🙂Posted 4 months ago
This was posted on WTRL’s website. Nothing from Zwift themselves that I can see (even an acknowledgment of the issue in the forum). I am hoping that it is resolved for next week but the same amount of events will be occuring at the same time on a Tuesday. The ZRL is a real beast with the amount of events that they have running.

Unfortunately the issues were outside of WTRL’s control and we completely empathize with the frustrations felt. With the new Zwift Clubs event feature, Meetups, Zwift Racing League, Tour de Zwift and regular events all trying to take place at the same time, an overload occurred. Zwift are currently working to find a solution to resolve this.
@weeksy, interesting that you could see us. There were 5 of us in a meetup practicing TTT technique (so at least some good came from the evening). The meetup was setup so we could only see ourselves. It’s odd that groups doing this still show in the main world. But yeah we were still pushing.Posted 4 months ago
