Hi, I just want some feedback to know if something might be wrong with my setup. I just tried zwift for the first time last night hoping to have a fun race in the d category. I got dropped on the line Instantly. So there was no race for me lol. I figured I should be able to hang with other beginners right? Or wrong?
Since I am not an experienced cyclist and have no understanding of what “watts” I should expect I wanted to ask whether you think my in game watts are accurate and whether something might be wrong with my setup. Like the speed sensor seems a bit flakey and I had to just guess about the model of the trainer. I weight 99kg and my average in game watts were 175. I know 99kg sounds like I’m fat and out of shape but I’m 6’2” and I’ve been strength training for years. I’m not fat. I’m not in amazing shape but not bad. I run 3 miles at 10 second pace twice a week.
If 175 is in deed a reasonable watts for a tall strong male beginner then what do I do to find people my level to race against since just joining a random race in the d category did not work.
