Hello. I am really confuse about the Zwift Power Category. Can someone explain it to me?
I was racing today, Crit City Race, signed up at C group. I got a ‘nice’ message saying I am too strong, we’ve lowered your power, etc etc and basically pretty much kicked me out of the race. I’d like to know why I got that message when I am, according to the Zwift Power Historic Category, I am a C (Mixed) and B (Women). I therefore signed in the C group. As much as I like to be too strong, it’s never that case! I had to put some power down in order to stay in the group. Isn’t that what everyone has to do to, either win, or least not the last person? Just because I put out 267w for 13 minuscule seconds, doesn’t mean I can do that for 30 mins!
Anyways, so on Zwiftpower, under my name, I have C and B under Minimum Category. What did I do wrong? I can’t be B (the first letter) as my FTP is not 200w!
