The Zwift Racing League is quite possibly the largest community-based racing league in the world. Does it also have the most cheaters, cruisers, and sandbaggers?
WTRL’s Martin Carew is here to say he’s doing things on his end, but can he and is Zwift doing enough?
In episode 34 of the Virtual Velo Podcast, Chris and Si ask those questions and more!
Martin explains the built-in anti-cheating system he has in place, the challenge of finding the perfect balance between credibility and inclusivity, and the limitations he faces.
Plus, the guys introduce a new recurring feature they call “Cycling Shorts.”
A complete rundown of cycling esports headlines, insider information, investigative reporting, and industry trends. Another way that the Virtual Velo Network is your Central Source For Cycling Esports!
Chris also shares insight from his conversations with Eric Min, USAC’s Jim Miller, Matt Stephens, and other cycling dignitaries while covering the Star Track Benefit for Cycling Weekly.
