Zwift Releases “FUEGO FLATS” Desert Expansion

Zwift, today opens the roads to the latest expansion on Watopia. One year on from the launch of Alpe Du Zwift, Watopia’s latest expansion is the first course focused on flat roads, the Fuego Flats.

The main route has just a few mild gradient changes, making it ideal for an easy ride, time trial, or all-out effort. Tracking at 10km out and 10km back, a roundabout at the road’s end lets you see the desert from all sides or exit the desert near the base of Watopia’s Epic KOM climb.

Fuego Flats is an area packed full of scenery that takes inspiration from the surrounding areas of Zwift’s HQ in Long Beach, CA. Zwift’s desert area draws influence not only from Death Valley, a place where Zwift Co-Founder Jon Mayfield has spent some time riding double centuries, but many of America’s deserts. You might recognize parts of Moab, the Antelope Canyon in Arizona, Mesa Verde cliff dwellings in Colorado, and the annual California Super Bloom.
