My question is mostly about etiquette:
I’m relatively new to Zwift, but have been enjoying racing. Hanging on in A races.
Last weekend, I had a crash, broke some ribs and had a collapsed lung. Got chest tube out and out of hospital a couple of days ago. Gonna start doing some easy indoor spinning tonight. But want to get back to racing as soon as I feel up to it.
I’m guessing it is going to be a while before I’m back on form.
Is the “right” thing here to jump into A races, knowing I’m going to get smoked (and probably immediately dropped) until zwift power downgrades me? Or do lower level races until I’m to a point where jumping in the A races seems reasonable again? Maybe sign up as an A and only do races with mixed fields so I have folks from other categories to actually race against?
I know I’ll get DQ’d if I sign up for lower category races. And that doesn’t really bother me that much. But I also see the vitriol when an A racer does lower category races and don’t want to contribute to that.
I’m enjoying this community and don’t want to run afoul of the rules, either written or unwritten.
