Am I the only one who thinks that the category really have no point at all?
I was looking at the race results of a race today and the winner in category d is pushing 3,6 watts/kg at 290 watts average.
The winner in category b was pushing around the same watts/kg, so what’s the point then?
Why doesn’t zwift puts you in a category based on your ftp? You shouldn’t be able to choose a category. That’s why I don’t do races, I see no point of pushing myself to the limit in the d category to finish almost last…
What I would do:
First time you use zwift you should do an ftp test and you shouldn’t be able to manual adjust that.
And for the rest they should upgrade your ftp automatically as u make progress like they do now.
So if u want to join a race, you tap on join event and you should be put into the category that fits ur watts/kg based on ur weight and ftp.
Can’t be so hard to do it this way or am I wrong?
