This is Zwift’s first event only route badge route. This route is 2.8 miles long, but 2.4 miles without the lead in. This route was added in the Neokyo expansion of Makuri Islands, and I expect this to be a pretty popular crit course as it is very flat, which makes for a fast flat crit. This route goes through the Alley sprint and the Castle sprint. For a complete list of events on this route, head over here: https://zwifthacks.com/app/events/?key=61a6eb3b98fc7.
The best bike for this course is definitely the fastest bike you have as the course is pretty much pan flat, with minimal climbing each lap. The fastest set up would likely be the Cervelo S5 2020 with the DT Swiss Disc. For a list of the fastest bikes, head over to this Zwift Insider article: https://zwiftinsider.com/fastest-frames/.
