There was a vote among teams whether to continue riding or not. Eleven voted in favour of continueing, five wanted to stop. Bahrain McLaren wanted to continue, but then was the only team to withdraw.

 

As we say in the Netherlands: "It's a strange sport, this cycling."

De Ronde's virtual race today won't be on Belgian TV only, where I will watch it, but for those interested here it's also on GCN Racing :cheer:

But first, at 11:00 CET, there is a Zwift race by the Alpecin-Fenix team. The course is 27,6km long and goes on the virtual Richmond world championships roads. Link of participants can be found here:

How can they ride in a peleton with no slipstream? That must be annoying as hell. :p

Zwift actually has rather strong slipstreaming modelled into it, apparently breakaways making it (especially solo) are very rare :p 

 

Probably one of the main reasons why the pro cyclists didn't get anywhere near the experienced Zwift riders today, they just threw their energy around instead of saving it in the peloton.
