One solution in the UK would be to use a look up system back to something like Cycling Time Trials or British Cycling results and see how individuals perform there.
I looked up two or three top 10 riders in today’s BC TT and they have not gone sub 20 not got any where close to to it, yet produce 5w/kg in a Zwift race!
Zwift need to verify riders results.
What if they don’t race in the real word? I used to be a 1st cat but retired 3 years ago due to family commitments. If I somehow got back to my 5.2w/kg ftp and smashed zwift would I get DQ for not having the time to race a Nat B every weekend?
I don’t wish to get away from the fact Swift races are hard! I just want them to be similar to what we see out on the roads. I believe Swift is trying to address it but until the Turbos can measure weight as well there will always be those who wish to lie about their weights!
How can I convince Zwift that I am a domestic pro mountain biker. I’m new in Zwift…so I am using old school trainer. My watts correlate with the watts I ride at a watt bike studio. Obviously I would have preferred a smart trainer for better accuracy. I think I’m getting flagged at races. Not so cool.
I get that most people don’t update their weight, and it’s not a huge issue but obviously the code is already there to support this. It isn’t like they have to update massive code since as you stated this is available for smart scales so the capability is already there. Zwift just chose not to put that level of precision on the manual side.
Side note, I’ll dig through my logs later today after my ride and see if there is a way to edit the weight with a decimal from within the log and not the Zwift app itself. (Work around but for those that really want to precision without buying a scale it could be an option if it works)
It sound easy but dealing with data a lot I know it sound stupid but it can be challenging.
But see if there is a feature request for more weight accuracy and vote it up or if there is not one then create one. I personally think it is a good suggestion.
While Zwift dig into that code they should limit the amount of weight you can change in a week.
Searched all the prefs and logs on the computer and couldn’t find anywhere weight is listed. However, on my.zwift.com you can enter a decimal for the weight and it retains it. Not sure if editing the weight in game only allows whole numbers or not. Or it’s possible Zwift only displays whole numbers for weight in the game but is really using the exact weight to 1 decimal place.
