Does anyone else get an issue, which is particularly notable in races, whereby your Avatar ends up covering more distance than any of your competitors? I’ve always assumed that in bunch races this is somehow related to the dreaded sticky draft, and that its just unfortunate that my Avatar seems to get stuck on practically anyone’s wheel, going nearly sideways getting past etc. It happens on all manner of event, if I’m climbing then I’ll literally have to punch past riders doing 0.5-1.0w/kg less than me, by putting in a 1.5-2.5w/kg extra spurt in just to get by them before pulling away at the same w/kg I was doing prior.
I thought it was something limited to races with draft, but I did a TT on the Bologna course today, whereby most riders were on TT bikes (not all) and the same occurred. Getting stuck on everyone’s wheel on the flat despite doing 1+ w/kg more. In the end I covered about 0.2km more than anyone else on screen 8.2 vs 8.0km.
Wondering if its a known ‘issue’?
