Did my first ever race last week. It was the national champs UK mens race.
I warmed up before the race for 15 mins then joined the start pen.
However when the race started my trainer didn’t recognize the volcano climb gradients. I wasnt sure if this was normal but my gut feel says “no!”. I wasnt stuck on any fixed watts. But stayed with the same resistance the whole race with swift adjusting my speed on the ascents and descents.
What’s going on? I neither selected nor deselected anything on ERG during the warm-up start pen or race.
I’m guessing this isn’t normal. I was looking forward to the climbing sections!
