Yeah, what @Gerrie_Delport said. These are essentially open cat races where all cats start at the same time in the same race. The only difference was the amount of laps.

BTW, Zwiftpower has you ranked as a cat B racer, so you should enter the B cat for the normal races 3.2 - 3.9 w/kg.

hi all

it must of only change after the race
because it was saying cat c (almost cat b)
i better get more training in now thank o god!!!
thank for the help

ill be killed in cat b race

michael

that all depends on the type of race, you did really well on the race today, one lap of richmond. Once the sandbagging controls get rolled out and all the cat A’s are not in cat B you will do fine.
