Reduce the drafting benefit of Pace Partners

Pacing should be about that, with the peloton draft bonus the pack goes far faster than any solo rider at the same w/kg. This means it’s hard/impossible to catch up without enormous effort on the part of the detached rider.

I’d like to suggest that Pace Partner riding doesn’t benefit from drafting, to A) encourage riders to actually work out at the given rate and B) allow chasers to catch up.

You could consider dropping your trainer difficulty setting down to see if that helps, maybe all the way to 0 if you want. A lower trainer effectively makes whatever course you’re riding a flatter one.

I moved this discussion to Pace riders - #14 by Mike_Rowe1 since it is being discussed there.
