I already emailed zwift, but maybe you guys can suggest alternatives.
I recently purchased a Kinetic Road Machine (InRide) to use exclusively with zwift races.
The issue I’m having is that in every single race I’m struggling to keep up with the rest of the group during the first few minutes. I decided to write today because I was riding a “D” race, and I’m struggling to keep up with the “D” group after 5 minutes. I know I’m no Geraint Thomas, but I don’t think I’m the slowest cyclist in zwift.
I’m 41-yo, 5’9", 170. I play competitive racquetball every day and ride about 30 miles every weekend. With that said, is it possible that I could be slower than every “D” and “C” cyclist from all the races? I’m asking because I would assume I’m not since I’m an active person, but I honestly have no idea. I’ve never ridden a real race, so I don’t know if it’s possible that “D” racers are actually faster than I am.
What’s most confusing is that I was doing great with my cycleops mag trainer. The only reason I switched is because I didn’t have enough resistance for sprinting at the end of the race.
Any help is appreciated.
