I completed my first race after signing up. Finished 13 of 32 in D category. After this I was DQed due to a higher W/kg than allowed. The following day I signed up for a group ride in C - but were no way near able to keep up with anyone. The same thing happened in my C race today. I then noticed, that many riders in the top weigh around 100kg which, quite frankly would never happen up front on the road. I am a small 63kg guy. Is there a bias towards heavier cyclists - or is there anyway I can compete in D which is clearly my level? Should I just accept being DQed when racing in the middle of the pack in D or accept coming in last in C. I suspect I will never be able to compete for top spots regardless of the category due to my weight and thus high W/kg.
As a beginner, I am still trying to figure out how things work. I might have missed something here. But I hope the seasoned bunch can help sort it out and explain it
