+1 I think this appears to still be the case .
I am investigating another issue and therefore paying attention to what riders around me are doing when I noticed this small group sailing past me doing sub 2 w/kg efforts . I had a look and I was doing 40 kph at the time and they screamed putting a lot of time and gap in a very short space of time at the time I guessed nearly double speed ! even it was only 50% thats 60kph doing 2 w/kg … I dont think so .
10 minutes later … another group … same thing … They were holding station with me doing half the w/kg and with a modest increase went flying off up the road .
Seen solo riders too … so perhaps they are doing this for some easy drops or something .
To be honest I never noticed before and didnt really care , but now I have seen it … now I know its a bug known for over a year … thats not great .
These guys are welcome to there easy workout but not things like grabbing jerseys and causing other riders to put in silly efforts to try and hold onto them thinking they are genuine riders . If the bug cant be fixed why not make group meet ups not visible to us and not qualify for KOM spots !
