I’m waiting for the NFL to use Madden NFL 20 for the Super Bowl Playoffs.

In the bizzarest example of sports under pandemic, the Tour de France will be held over three weekends with cyclists pedaling on a stationary bike to victory:

“The virtual Tour de France should be Zwift’s biggest event yet. The competition will be held over six stages that each take roughly an hour to complete. Men and women will race separately, just like real life, but compete over identical courses. The first two stages will take place in Watopia — a fictional world that Zwift developed for its broader running and cycling community — with ‘several visual additions’ inspired by Nice, the coastal town that will host the tour’s ‘Grand Départ’ in real life.”

No word yet if the yellow jersey will be awarded virtually.
