If I’m not outside in the WCC gravel | fatbike ride on Saturday…I’ll be there.

I’ll make sure the gravel suspects are there.

I don’t have an invite to the WCC DISCORD channel. Do we even have one?


The link for Discord is at the top but I have also added it here: WCC Discord channel @Francqlife

Looks like the Discord link I had set was expired. I updated that. Should work now. Now sure which voice channel to use, maybe intermediate?



I emailed the group and accepted the invite to the WCC DISCORD Channel.

Like you said @Oliver_Smith

Let’s see if they come.

I’m in but will see how long I last, lungs are still not great. If we keep it in the range I should be okay.

Hmmm. Maybe?
I have no idea how to join.:man_shrugging:

Sorry folks, I’m out. I’m sick (again)! Not sure if I need do anything to make it run as leader. I don’t think I do but I’ll monitor it and make sure it goes

Thank @Oliver_Smith

It worked out really well.

8 of us did 50km at ~2.2 watts/kg on the inaugural WCC “fast-intermediate” Zwift ride this morning with a number of 700 watt sprints in the mix.

We had a guest DISCORD cameo from Chris and Gaelen.

Felt very close to a Thursday night G3 ride. Ride dynamics are much improved this year. We managed to stay together and even ease up after the sprint last to regroup.

It was a great ride, but @Francqlife you are really underrating my sprint!

I scheduled next Saturdays ride, if anyone is interested in a Xmas Eve ride, we could do earlier in the week too

Just a reminder we have another Saturday ride tomorrow at 9am. We have to burn off our drinks!

Great ride today, it may have got a bit spirited at times, so I guess it was a normal Fast 3 ride! Happy New Year!

Might join the next one. Y’all have a mid-week one too?

Hi Christian, Chris has been running a Thursday one, usually a ride closer to 3w/kg. I haven’t been running a week day one, as I have just been riding at a bit earlier, and mostly doing intervals Tues/Thurs.
