Looking for some advice, think i might have missed something obvious?
Just finished my first race for something a bit different from training. I raced in Cat C ZHQ FutureWorks Crit City Race - Anti-sandbagging, crit format was great and definatley takes the intensity to the next level!
About 2 laps into the race I turned a corner and the group I have been following literally vanished in fornt of my eyes. The reappeared some 10 seconds later quite a bit down the course? There was no way they dropped me so quickly, and looking on zwiftpower the watts seemed similar.
It isn’t a big deal as these races are just a bit of fun however, obviously the race got a whole lot more difficult without anyone to follow! So…
A. A technical glitch? Wifi cut out?
B. Was i sandbagging? (i was getting a bit to competititve in the first few laps)
C. Did people move up catergories?
or some other explainable reason?
