I'm on Zwift and I haven't gotten my call from a Pro team yet. Not sure what's taking so longThis is kind of an interesting development/marketing plan. It will be interesting to see how she does.
Zwift Announces 2017 Canyon/SRAM-Contract Winner - Peloton Magazine
I recently rode with a teen state champion in that very large Sagan peloton I went on last month. No doubt, the kid was very quick, but the way he buzzed a few of us while passing? Let's just say I was no longer in doubt of his age and lack of experience in groups.All of this is the most ridiculous publicity stunt. No kidding it's for women's racing and not men's, either.
I'd love (er...hate) to see some Cat 5 male with Pro-level power get plopped into the middle of an NRC crit or even a Belgian kermesse, much less an actual Euro race. They'd probably crash themselves and half the peloton out in the first mile.
There's a reason why there's a racing system and it's precisely because going really, really fast requires having really, really fine-tuned skills and instincts, both for your safety and everyone else's. Pros crash far more than enough with guys that have been racing and crashing for a decade plus. People without that experience...pure terror.
