Zwiftcast – Episode 1

Eric Min, the CEO of Zwift, speaks at length and candidly on all things Zwifty. He’s got news on how many users he thinks we will see on the platform in January. He’s got news on when we might see new courses and how they might work. A velodrome? Listen and hear Eric’s thoughts. Is Zwift getting glitchy and is tech support able to do enough? Eric answers some tricky questions honestly and straight-forwardly.

Why are only 8% of Zwifters women? Cassie Baldi comes on to the Zwiftcast to explain how she’s trying to change that state of affairs.

Mick Neal, a veteran Zwifter who’s been on the platform right from the start, talks to me about what gets our goat. Not in a horrible way – but we rehearse some niggles we’d love to see the Zwift team fix.

James Gill, the indefatigable organiser of the ZTR (Zwift TRaining Races) has got some great advice if you’ve fancied racing but not been sure where to start.
