Côté Smashes Sand and Sequoias Finale

Côté Smashes Sand and Sequoias Finale

Canadian sprints to second on stage 4 of Tour For All.

In the closing kilometers of stage 4 at the Tour For All, Pier-André Côté was never far from the action. The young Canadian not only leaned on his cycling talent but on his tactical knowledge of the Zwift platform. When the peloton got strung out in the final kilometer, Côté stayed patient and used the wheels in front of him before hitting out inside the final 250 meters. Grega Gole (Bahrain McLaren) was the only rider strong enough to squeeze past within sight of the line Côté finished a close second. Heidi Franz lead home the women's team in 15th place. 

"I'm really happy with the result against top-level guys," said Côté. "My goal was to be near the front and sprint from one draft to another and hit the front at the right time. I crumbled a little bit when I got close to the line but I gave it everything." 

When racing outdoors you have to navigate physical bodies and are limited by the width of the road. On Zwift, there's no steering to worry about and instead, riders are watching the watts per kilogram of their competitors to anticipate the next attack.
