Thing 1 is the virtual Tour de France on Zwift. See Women’s Tour de France on Zwift.

Watch here.

We watched Stage 2 this morning. If you’ve ever been curious about Zwift this is pretty realistic. Well, except for their watts per kilo. Wow!

STEEP CLIMBS AND FLAT SPRINTS

Stage 2, July 5

Racers start at sea level, breathing that salty oxygenated air before going under the sea via the Ocean Tunnel. After the competitors exit the ocean, keep an eye on the climbers. During the next 5.8 miles (9.4 km), they’ll ascend a 3.9% grade. And the final push, AKA the Radio Tower Climb, is brutal.

Here’s the stage winner, Lauren Stephens. And here’s commentary on the race.

And here she is, in world, crossing the line.
