Zwift makes abrupt U-turn after banning weight-doping hack whistleblower

Days before the UCI Cycling Esports World Championships, Zwift user Luciano Pollastri took to a burner blog account to publish The Ultimate Undetectable Weight Cheat on Zwift‘, which outlined how, using the Zwift companion app, users could alter their weight mid-race to gain a performance advantage.

Given the sensationalist nature of the title, which made no plea in itself for the bug to be fixed, Zwift proceeded to slap Luciano with a 30 day shadowban, meaning he could still use the platform, but his avatar would not show up for other users , and his results would not feature either.
