I’ve only had my trainer for a week and decided to do my first race today.
I entered a cat C race for my first race and didn’t do too badly, but I was surprised to see on Zwift Power that I was disqualified for WKG.
What really surprised me was that I finished some 40 seconds behind first place and was still disqualified. I averaged 3.7 w/kg and 294w. To be honest that’s what it took to keep up and I really threw everything at it.
I don’t understand how you are supposed to win by giving less effort.
Being my first race there was no metric to even base what cat to join to begin with, I thought I was being fair doing a cat C race. Seems a bit harsh to be DQ on your first race and you don’t even win by a large margin.
