Zwift Events - cannot seem to start to race?

Can anyone tell me why, when I start a race that my avatar does not start peddling even though I am?

Hi @Ray_Shikatani, welcome to the forums. Can you give us more details please and an entire rundown of your system and setup?

Sounds like you are losing signal from your trainer.


Hi Mike
I am not using a smart trainer and have a Garmin cadence and speed sensor set up. It seems to work just fine with any other route or training preset but when I attempted to start in the race that, I registered for the avatar would not move.
Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated

I always seem to have a bad start and lose positions at race start. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast.

Are you pedalling while you’re waiting in the start pen? It sounds like your speed sensor is going to sleep and Zwift is losing the connection. If this is the case, you don’t need to pedal all the time, just now and then if you have a long wait, and check that Zwift Companion is still showing you generating watts.
