Just completed ‘World Class’ level on Rouvy…
And i’m now a Rouvy Legend…
And that’s it. All the levels completed, big bad boss beaten, game over, and all in 7 months – which i don’t think is too shabby.
So now what? Well, i’m going to finish my month’s subscription on Rouvy as it would be silly not to use it up as i do enjoy Rouvy, and then i’m going back to Zwift for a while.
WTF! Yes, back to Zwift. I’ve been getting lots of messages on VeloViewer about the Strava segment positions i set while i was previously on Zwift getting lower and lower and dragging my VeloViewer Score down – can’t have that!!! So i really feel the need to go back to Zwift for a while and bump a few back up – call it vanity, i don’t care. 😀 But vanity, or not, it’s going to be interesting as all i’ve spent my time on while riding on Rouvy has just been getting used to riding in an aero tuck and getting all the power back that i lost when i switched over to using the tri-bars full time – which i think i’ve done and then some on top. Anyways, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what times i can set on Zwift now in an aero tuck on tri-bars and compare them to the times i set previously on the tops and drops. At least on Zwift they have the TT bike that has its algorithm set up to give the reduced drag of being in an aero tuck which isn’t the case on Rouvy. On Rouvy everyone’s given a normal riding position drag coefficient and there’s no way of changing it.
I’m also quite interested to try out the new routes on Zwift as well and set a few times on those too.
Then once that’s done i’m going to go off and find another platform to play on. There’s quite a few different platforms out there now and i really would like to try them all eventually and complete all their levels as well.
I’m currently planning on coming back to Rouvy on 1st October 2019 and going for double Legend status – which means completing all levels twice through in the 12 months between 1st October 2019 and 30th September 2020, but in the meanwhile there’s so much more of the virtual cycling world to sample and i want to see what some of the others have to offer.
