The New Cycling Game Makes Training Fun

The founder of the computer game that claims to give the people a game-cum-training tool to have experience but the game is still in testing. The founder says that there are six professional teams that have promised to give them contracts of the best and the promising players.

The startup cofounder Eric Min confirmed the Telegraph about the news. They have also been promised a reality show to find new talents in rising like the X-Factor. The teams have promised spot for the winners of the talent hunt.

Zwift works for connecting the turbo trainers. Turbo trainers are the device that makes the normal bicycles stationary and also provides resistance from the back wheel rotation which lets the rider train themselves while being indoors. The user however gets an interface where they can race against complete strangers online.

The game gives the riders an advantage. The faster the rider pedals, the character speeds up accordingly and makes the race far more realistic and encouraging as a normal pedaling across the lanes outside could be a bit boring and even difficult in winter. The company not only hopes that it will be used by professionals to train but will be used in households and even in gyms.

The user can have their own personalized avatars and can also collect their awards for riding at particular speeds or to distances. The game is now being tested by 500 users and has already got some 15000 people who are prepared to get the game for a $10 monthly fee on its launch.

Min says that there are many cyclists who consider themselves very good and now have a platform to prove it. Many people are taking this game as a tool to train themselves in winter which is all right for them but what the company really works for is entertainment. Training is a very lonely experience but is doesn’t have to be so anymore.

Tinkov offered 1m Euro Grand-Tour Challenge to Froome

2013 Tour France winner Froome (Chris) has been offered whopping 1m Euro challenge to contest in all the 3 Grand Tour competitions of 2015. It’s Oleg Tinkov, the rival team boss which has thrown the challenge to the Sky star.

Oleg has made the same offer to 2015 Tour France champ Vincenzo Nibali and Giro winner Quintana (Nairo). The Russian top gun wants the 3 riding stars to compete against legendary Alberto Contador, the leader of Oleg’s Tinkoff-Saxo.

Vuelta Espana would be the 3rd Grand tour following Giro Italia and Tour France.

The prize money would be divided in between riders taking part in all the 3 races- or it would go to that very rider who will be able to come up with best of performances in each of the 3-week grand races. Giro 2015 would be starting in May while Tour France usually starts from July. Vuelta would be raced the next month in August & would be continued till September.

While Giro’s route has been revealed already, the Tour France route is due to be declared soon by this week. Vuelta route would be shared the coming year.

Contador and Nibali are 2 among the 6 riders to have triumphed in all the 3 Grand Tours in their careers yet no one has been able to emerge victorious in all 3 Tours in the same season.9 men have triumphed at Tour & Giro, Vuelta & Tour or Vuelta & Giro in same year. Alberto was the last man to triumph at 2 races in a single year while he came up with both Vuelta and Giro trophies in 2008. On the other hand, Marco Pantani triumphed at Tour and Giro 10 years back in 1998 & Bernard Hinault (French) did the same with Vuelta and Tour 20 years ago in 1978.
