    We need to find a recording of the finish. It is a keeper. Been looking but no luck so far.

    Sixty-one ladies lined up this morning for the ODracerZODZ ladies Only Race. Ms. Daisy was the only known recumbent representative. She finished a respectable fourth in the C category. The women pulled off a great race with active chat going on on their discord channel. Next week is a big week in Zwift as they celebrate International Women's week. They kick off on Wednesday with a big race and follow up with a ride and chat with Kristen Armstrong the same day. Kristen is a professional racer and three-time Olympic gold medalist. How about it Cruzbike women-- consider jumping in.
     
  3. Yeah, he's fast. But there are multiple serious cyclists with the same name apparently. The one I know is in Grand Rapids, MI.

    (Moved from another thread) Team Moose is now well indoctrinated in the Zwift racing world with more than 45 races in the bag. The Moose Men's Division is, let's just say, less than stellar. Meanwhile, the Lady Moose group is very competitive. Today's Ladies Only Race was a fine one indeed bringing home the silver in the C category. Come on Cruzbike girls, join the fun!

    It's kinda funny. They catch those weirdos and toss them out as fast as they can catch'em.

    Todays' ladies race is now history and team Moose showed some promise. Ms. Daisy missed the lead group but managed to catch the second one right on their heels. This group slowly pulled away from her while the remnants formed a third. By time the second lap started she had moved in front of the group and found herself in that all too familiar no womens' land. One day we're gonna have a team and this ain't gonna happen.
    Two miles before the finish Heather an A racer made a hard push and made up 16 seconds and was only 2 seconds behind Daisy. But, Moose number one wasn't done and fought her off to make it a sprint finish. The video shows the last 300 meters with Heather ramping up the wattage but no chicken dinner for the A racer tonight. She wasn't the only one with a little sprint left. Fun, fun, fun, plenty of room for you to join in!

    Team Moose has finally moved from concept to street ready! The first trial run of dual racing Zwifters was a smashing success.

    Dad gum it, perfect weather forced us to go out and ride in real life today! But it wasn't all bad, we made it a short ride and still had time to get back home in time to ride in the Mountain Goat race. Saturday may pose another problem in that we were planning to go to the local Tifton organized Century ride but this conflicts with the Ladies ODZ Second Sat Race. Oh well, looks like we save some money and stay at home.

    The Mooster Cave got some snazzing up just in time for tomorrow mornings ODZ sponsored ODivaZ Ladies Race at 0800. All Lady Cruzies have an open invitation to jump in and race or just drop in to cheer the only Lady Cruzbiker on the planet thats giving Zwift racing a go.(patheticI know). We'll be on the lady Diva discord channel but I'll leave the Moose playground channel open just in case someone drops by.

    LOL, guess I could. For all the non-zwifters, Zwift has quite a sense of humor and routinely throws in little gags into the game. Today in honor of April fools day all the riders were bobble heads. This is the team moose look for the day. It actually made it much easier to draft!

    Today's final cut Bumped her from hero to zero and into the B's while the heads are back to normal.

    Lady Team Moose dominates: Well OK its cat D but we'll take it. Funny thing the moose Cave was set up with one recumbent and one DF so we could ride together but shortly after the set up neither of us wanted to ride the DF. Geez it's uncomfortable, So. today back into the attic and out comes the Musashi. Looking forward to see if the T 50 can give a Vendetta recline for future upgrades. Now, could I ask a favor from the C-bikers? I feel like the lone ranger on this thread but am basically trying to keep it alive as Zwift has great potential for us as a community (or at least I feel it does). Could I get feedback as to what others think? And yes, no feedback is valuable feedback, as this cuts through the BS and answers the question clearly. Thanks all.

    I enjoy reading your posts. I do not have a setup for zwift riding. I am living vicariously through Team Moose.

    It's my understanding you don't need an elaborate set up. (chime in Rojo) , A way to measure your tire speed and heart rate is all you need. It's not ideal but it puts you in the game at a low cost. In fact in some ways its better. Why, apparently its not as "accurate" and is the cause for many of the Smart trainer guys to snivel. It's worth it just for that.
