During my last 2 races, while warming up in the holding pen I noticed my avatar would stop pedalling, unclip, then immediately restart pedalling. It would do this about 3 or 4 times a minute while I was pedalling at a constant cadence of around 90 to 100. It did this for about 15 minutes, then as soon as the race starts it pedals normally (no more stop-start). Mine was the only avatar doing this, and I tried the following things but nothing fixed the problem:
- varying the power output (it still did it while pedalling at a solid 300watts)
- re-pairing the cadence sensor
- switching the cadence sensor from the Garmin on the bike to the one builtin to the trainer
- restarting the game software
I’m using a laptop and all devices connect via Ant+. My setup hasn’t changed for several years (except for software updates).
It doesn’t seem to impact the race, but I would like to know what’s going on here.
