Does anyone on here know what the letter (In a coloured circle) next to the start time on the Zwift event list means? I initially assumed it was the rider class but that goes from A-D and there are several with an E.
The poster above said they were dropped in B races but kept up in A races. It's highly likely that in those B races several riders exceeded the Cat limit and so would be disqualified in the final results on zwift power.
Riders entering the wrong category is a problem with zwift racing. Quite a few riders like to sandbag in lower cats
I don't get why people sandbag though as surly if you want a descent workout you want to push hard. So for me it's better to be aiming not to be bottom of the C class , than easily topping the D class class.
Racing I am just censored at ... getting better though
Guess it proves how good some people are and how fit they are to maintain such high power figures for an entire race.
Re the starts.. yes ballistic.. but there is a race or two organiser who is doing a 2/3 mile neutral start before the sh 1it hits the fan.. a better way.
If you can keep up with the A's and not using 'Z POWER' fair play to you mate.
That sounds a good way having a nutueral race start as some of those ones I've been in, they just go off like a rocket. Yes I will pass loads of cat D and C riders who clearly have shot their load early on, but I get the feeling to challenge even the top of the C group you need to be in that leading group.
The feather icon that appears over a rider's head is when they are using their featherweight power up. Makes them lighter for a few seconds. If you mean it's in your top left corner of screen then you have that power up, press spacebar to use it. There's a bunch of different ones. Google the unofficial Zwift FAQ for more.
