I joined the EVO CC Flux social ride 1.5-2.0w/kg avg this morning. I had the intention to stick to the beacon all the time. Right from the start i was isolated with 5 others persons. We couldn’t keep up with the middle group where the beacon was. My average pace was 2w/kg so i don’t get it why the middle group just went farther and farther away from us.
I was surprised when i finished that another 80 people finished after our group. I had the feeling the whole ride we were the last 5 in the rear…
What is the most Zwift thing to do in that situation after the start when you can’t connect with the middle group? Do you speed up solo and go 4w/kg until you reach the middle group or do you stay with the small group in no-man’s-land?
Fwiw i use a dumb trainer witch Tacx Blue Moon setting 4.
