With prizes in eSports becoming more prestigious and increasing in value, what can riders and event organisers do to ensure that the winners are legitimate?
Mike and Dave discuss whether the UCI need to create an eSports division that oversees all online platforms, whether the platforms themselves need to create a combined overseeing body and some potential future changes which could make it harder for athletes to cheat.
As eRacing develops specialist athletes who only ride indoors how do they prove their credentials when the assumption is that there is always a margin for error?
The pair also take comments from the viewers including Tam Burns of Virtupro.
Semi-retired as owner and director of his private Orthopedic Physical Therapy practice after over 20 years, Chris is blessed with the freedom to pursue his passion for virtual cycling and writing. On a continual quest to give back to his bike for all the rewarding experiences and relationships it has provided him, he created a non-profit. Chris is committed to helping others with his bike through its work and the pages of his site.
In the summer of 2022, he rode 3,900 miles from San Francisco to New York to support the charity he founded, TheDIRTDadFund. His “Gain Cave” resides on the North Fork of Long Island, where he lives with his beautiful wife and is proud of his two independent children.
You will read him promoting his passion on the pages of Cycling Weekly, Cycling News, road.cc, Zwift Insider, and Bicycling. Chris is co-host of The Virtual Velo Podcast, too!
