Zwift recently rolled out its third challenge–the “Tour Italy” challenge. Many Zwifters have been asking about the details, so here they are!

Completing the challenge: just select it as your challenge from the menu screen (hit “T” in-game, then click the challenge image at the top-right to see your current challenge information and/or switch to a new challenge.) Then ride 2000km and you’re done!

What’s the prize? A brand-new Pinarello F8 Dogma!

Prior to this challenge only a select few Zwifters go to ride a Pinarello, because the Pinarello Dogma 65.1 bike was available to early beta testers (called the “Pinarello Dogma” in game). This is a different Pinarello, though–the F8 is a little lighter than the 65.1, completing a Richmond full lap 4 seconds faster in my speed tests. Although it’s a nice piece of virtual kit, the F8 is not a terribly fast bike in game–slower even than the Zwift Aero which is unlocked at level 13.
