Zwift Sprint Jersey

It was pouring rain w/ embedded Tstorms here in Connecticut this morning. So I did a Zwift workout this AM instead of riding outside. With the new UI I can choose which world I can ride in. I chose NY. I like Central Park in early fall. My favorite time of year! Anyway, there were so few people, when the heavy hitters finished their ride I got a sprinters jersey. First time and probably the last. Hahaha.

I've gotten a sprinter's jersey a few times in Makuri, when the only people there are doing the slow paced pace partner rides. Sprinting through the pack to use their aero and take a slow sprint jersey may be cheap, but I need to do a few efforts as part of my pre-race warm up anyway, and it's the only way I'll get one. There was one race where, due to some sort of bug, I went into the pen wearing the sprinter's jersey and then I saw me wearing it the whole race. To everyone else, it looked like I was wearing my team jersey, but seeing the sprinter's jersey on me really kept me pump up. That stupid NYC KoM still kicked my but, but I liked riding it wearing the green jersey.

Yes, the sprinters Jersey is green. The orange is the route jersey.

You guys are right. Never having gotten one I really have no idea which is which. Looking back at my ride I had a PR for Park Perimeter route. So that was what the Jersey was for. Still think it was funny.

in my opinion the orange jersey is harder to get than the green ones. the green ones only need maximum power for a short period of time while the orange ones need a lot more time at a high power. color me impressed with your jersey.

I got the green jersey a couple of times back when I used to sprint in London. Should have taken a screen shot, there doesn't seem to be any record of it.

Congratulations! I don't think I've got a route jersey or a sprint jersey? In my early days of Zwifting I used to get so excited about getting an event jersey but my collection has grown so much over the past 5 or so years I don't really even notice which jersey I have on.

A Zwift jersey in real life riding would be exciting.
