During yesterdays Power Up Training Camp Workout #1: Climb, 21:20h CEST, I felt a significantly reduced resistance from my trainer (Tacx Genius Smart). In hardest gear, I was barely able to reach 250W whilst not surpassing cadence @85rpm. On top of that, the 250W felt like 150W.
When switching off ERG and setting easy incline, the trainer immediately gave me a pretty hefty resistance, and measured wattage doubled almost instantaneously.
Judging from the messages it seemed quite a number of other riders had similar issues. For me, it was the first time to experience this, I should add though that I am relatively new to Zwift so “Dumb user” could well be an answer in my case.
Any idea what might have been going on here and what I could have done to avoid the situation?
