New To Zwift, Help on Categories


Have done a few rides but struggling with the vast world of Zwift, any help is appreciated -

I scheduled a race last night and entered at Level D, however when I started I noticed I was in Cat A, all my info is correct ie weight etc.

Is it mandatory to do a FTP test first and that will officially ‘give’ me a grading?

Thank you in advance

No, it has nothing to do with your entered ftp. However, some rides, not normally races, have different categories that do not correspond to your w/kg ftp. Some are age related and some are distance related. So, I am not sure which race you registered for but Zwift does not restrict registration based on your profile.
