I recently joined Zwift this year and have been loving it. Most of my indoor cycling has been using TrainerRoad but I want to get into Zwift more and try events for the winter season. I figured Tour de Zwift is a great place to start!
So I know they categorized the rides and my FTP is 2.7 Watts/kg which would put me into Category C. But the ride lengths for Category C are shorter than those for A/B and I would rather do the longer rides. I know at the end of the day the answer is always going to be ‘do what you want’ but can I join a category A/B ride? Should I stick with my category or can I just pick the longer routes understanding I just won’t place competitively?
