I did a beta crit race today in the B category. I was riding with two other guys off the back of the lead pack when we went up the bricks for the second to last time. I pushed hard at the top of the climb and probably hit 500 or maybe 600 watts very briefly.
A huge window popped up on my screen saying that I either “missed my calling as a pro cyclist” or that my equipment was out of tolerance. I was given an orange triangle and was informed that I would not appear in the results. So there.
I hit 600 watts on almost every race, so that’s not out of the ordinary. I ride a 5-month old Wahoo Kickr that I recalibrated two days ago, so I wouldn’t think that would be the issue. There’s no wattage spike on the ride file at that point in the race which is odd.
