Whether it's worth the money or not likely depends on how much you use Zwift and the trainer in general. However, if...

The point that the field is weak is a good one. 2 of the top 3 rivals to Pogacar are not even the initial leaders on their team. The other, Uran, is good, but not a serious contender to win. No...

Agreed. Merckx doesn't need to remind us about how much better of an overall cyclist he was. We know. The classy thing would be to celebrate Cav's achievement along with everyone else.
