I believe the group ride leaders should have some power to:
- Warn continuous riders not abiding by the ride description (sandbaggers pushing the power over the power/kg posted ride)
- Have the power to move those continuous riders to back of the group (Warnings)
- After 3 warnings have the ability to remove rider from group ride/race.
I think this will keep the riders honest. I have often been on a “3.0w/kg” ride and had to hold 3.4+ to stay with group.
