Just did the EF group ride with Magnus Cort.
Advertised as a C at 2.3-2.5w/kg.
Perfect…or so I thought!
I was dropped like a stone within 3 minutes, and I was pushing 3w/kg. Ended up 5 minutes behind in a small group, final average for me of 2.7.
I have no problem if they want a faster ride - make it clear in the description. Please don’t advertise it at one pace, then ride it completely differently. It’s demotivating and makes the estimated category and w/kg pointless.
Anyone else have the same experience?
Magnus was the leader and seemed to be of the opinion, you’re riding with a pro, try to keep up. It’s as if he wasn’t informed of the advertised pace…or else the ride was incorrectly labelled. Either way it was frustrating as it seems like such a simple thing to get right.
