What decides your Category on Zwift Power?

Hi fellow Zwifters. I have been reasonably competitive in Cat D races, up until I I serviced my turbo trainer. Stupidly I jumped on and raced, and kicked out way more watts than I usually do. After calibration I am back down to my usual power output. Unfortunately Zwift power has upped me to Cat C, and now I’m unhappily no-where in a race. How do I get back down? TIA

Email zwiftpower@zwift.com and explain what happened. They can fix it for you.

Really? Wow! thank you.
