The August game update has a new enhancement called Active Category Enforcement. It is the next step in the evolution of community bike racing on Zwift to make competition more equitable.
You might see this “Out of Category alert” when you register for a race so you’re aware.
If you click “I Understand”, you’ll be given the choice to re-register for the category that better matches your power (w/kg) abilities.
If you continue in the original category, your avatar will wear the green “cone of shame” for the remainder of the event, and your power will be ratcheted back for the remainder of the event to keep it fair for riders that in the correct category for their power (w/kg).
If you have questions about why you were shown this alert - please email email@example.com so we can examine your specific case offline.
