Crit City Races

I enjoy these races but what annoys me is Higher Grade riders who insist on riding in lower grades so they can win.
I ride D grade 1-2.4 W/KG.
However D grade is always dominated by riders pushing 3.1 W/KG or above.
No big deal I know, just wish Zwift would push these riders into their correct grade.

Just my whinge for the day lol

Hi I know the feeling, however as they high grade riders they will automatically be DQ if registered with Zwift power

The real issue with this is that the above category riders cause splits in the field. This makes say D riders would could maybe hang on in a normal situation get spit out the back. Only the strongest of the strongest hang on in the lead pack. If these riders were not there it’s very possible no real D rider initiates that type of break away. I did tdz stage 4 in B the other day. I was going too hard up the climb and then sort of cracked back to 3.8w/kg. Most of the group probably would have stayed going close to the same speed but there was a zpower rider that blew by and pulled people with him, he finished at 4.6w/kg. If he wasn’t there the race would have stayed more together.
