After taking part in a group ride the other day with Pro4mance, the initial lap was supposed to be 2.5 then the next 3, the third 3.5 and then all out for the last. The event lead had issues with his/her connection and basically it went to hell in a hand bag, initial lap had people hitting 4+ w/kg and those that tried to stick to the plan basically had no chance of keeping it together.
My thoughts after this were would it be possible for a race lead to set a max power allowed per lap for an event other than in a race, so for example:
Lap 1 max allowed 2.7 w/kg for a 2.5 w/kg lap to allow a margin of error so that people can see they are slightly over and adjust down.
Lap 2 max allowed 3.2 w/kg for a 3 w/kg lap
Lap 3 max allowed 3.7 w/kg for a 3.5 w/kg lap
Lap 4 max allowed unrestricted
The idea being that while in the event and on the lap specified Zwift will only recognise the max allowed for the lap no matter what you input.
I know this needs some more thought as it doesn’t allow for sprints however maybe zwift could be set to break those limits between the sprint markers.
