What’s the best practice of category selection for kids joining group rides and races, based on their auto calculated FTP or FTP test results, and w/kg.
My kids are under 45kg, but have correct weight in settings.
I read somewhere that they should race down a single Category. Eg If w/kg would be Cat B, ride in Cat C.
Not sure if that was on a FB Riders/Racers group post, or in a forum or just hearsay. Couldn’t find an official Zwift response on this.
My son recently had his FTP increased after a race he did in Tour of Watopia Stage 1. Sometimes the W/kg looks high because the kids get dropped and pushing the wind in no-mans land does such, as they can’t hold the mental starts and fast pace after the first 10 mins.
Great result for him, and no doubt people must have seen his average Watts was much lower than those around him, obviously he’s a lot smaller
Would be nice to know.
Bear in mind, no HRM and no account on ZP/Strava, this is purely for kids to join a ride/race and enjoy it.
