Lutece Express

Thursday, February 24th at 7:15PM

The Royal City Rumble: Our signature club ride is now a Zwift Club Event. Make sure to accept your invite to the Royal City eSports club using the Companion App. Then go to our club and join the event.

The event will feature two and a half laps of the Paris' "Lutece Express" route. The route is the reverse direction of the iconic Champs-Elysees. We will complete three hard efforts (2.3km/rep) during the ride. For the first hard effort we will begin with a "race start" from the start pens. There will be no neutral lead-in. Every effort finishes at the Green Sprint Finish Banner. After the effort we'll regroup and ride the remainder of the lap easy. We begin the second and third reps at the Orange Lap Banner heading up towards the Arc de Triomphe. Note: the Orange Lap Banner will be on the other side of the road. As always, all abilities can join just be prepared to go hard! 

I've done some recon for the event. See pics and use this info to create your stem guides: 

Route: Paris' "Lutece Express":

Race Start: We ride hard as soon as the event begins! Make sure you're powering up at least ~10 seconds before the start so you don't get left in the start pens.

Intervals (3x): (2.3km).

Start = Rep 1; Event Start Pens, Rep 2&3; Orange Lap Banner heading "up" towards Arc de Triomphe (note: banner will be on the opposite side of the road).

Finish = Green Sprint Finish Banner.

Don't worry about the Event Finish Banner this week (ie. no "race results" to enable "late-join").

A few reminders so that things go smoothly:

  • Power Ups are fair game! 

  • No TT Bikes. If you need to change bikes you can do so in the game by going into your garage and selecting a road bike. 

  • Get your warm-up/activation done before the meet-up.
