Today i did an event, The Cauberg Royal Classic Mens Workout. This has the time and for how long to hold roughly those watts at. (1min @ 260W , 50 secs/310watts et cetera)
Trying to stay with in those limits, i started out in 66th place, or around there, trying to keep at the top safe zone of the watts, you eventually can work your way higher in position, i some how got to around 12th place, then on the next zone where it said to drop your power, I did so, but then everyone around me, even thought their kg/w were not super high, were just passing by me and suddenly I am back in 50th + again.
Am i miss-understanding the relationship between watts vs speed? Using my resistance dial i was adjusting to try and stay with in the zones. But some parts i found i had to go very high over the recommend watts just to stay with the group…The worry of that is if you run over the watts you can get disqualified from races I was reading over on ZwiftPower, as the race is supposed to be tracked over there.
