    VirtuGO goes belly up

    I received am email from them today saying they are closing down. I tried VirtuGO during its Beta period. It didn't seem to offer anything new that wasn't already in Zwift. Was anyone here using it?

    I tried it a few times while it was in beta. Nice enough, but nobody ever on it, so I stayed with Zwift. Zwift got the early jump and has such a huge gap in the social indoor riding scene, it's going to be hard for others to really break in.

    No competitors mean high cost.

    it's all about the ecosystem. Zwift is the Apple of cycling sim. The only way to compete with Zwift is with HUGE capital (ie, big venture capitalists) at this point. Anything less is foolery attempt.
