This week, I participated in a race on London Loop. On the second descent, I was all of a sudden dropped from the pack, I was in (roughly 10 persons). I heard on the live stream that the same had happened to no.1 on Zwift, Lennart Teugels, and also some others. He was able to ride back to the group on his own only to win the race! Unfortunately, I was not :).
I wrote with Teugels afterwards, and he thinks it was a glitch (see the conversation on the Companion app, DCU race this wednesday).
I am not sure, though, and would like to get some opinions:
- the draft 3 protocol, could this be the case?
- the route down the box hill, perhaps?
I weigh 76 kg, so I do not think the a low weight is to blame. Also not my trainer: the avatar was in supertuck.
If it is changed dynamics (as I suspect), do anyone then know how to handle it. Like, if you find you avatar slipping ever so slightly down the pack, should you immediately tramp the pedals for some watts to regain speed and then super tuck again (as opposed to pedaling with less watts for longer time)? Or how?
