I’m kinda new to Zwift, so please excuse my ignorance. I’ve been using Zwift now for about a year, starting with weight loss - and now that I’m close to my target BMI, I have started to race on Zwift.
I started in D class - and when discussing possibly joining a league, I was told by the sports director that I would need to race in C class, and rely on my sprints to be a contender in the races.
So I’ve been practicing going the distance in a higher class - and have been riding with C Cadence, doing workouts, etc. Raising my FTP, etc.
Yesterday I did a C criterium race. I was the only woman in C, B or A class. I did ok! 20th place of the pack. But I realized there’s something missing.
Am I to get a jersey from a race? A badge? A something? Other than seeing that I need to be at the cusp of B class to win a race - I’m wondering what the object is here. It seems friendlier and more fun to just ride with the pace partners.
I must be missing something simple.
