I’ve been on Zwift now 6months, over the past 2 months and the purchase of smart trainer I’ve really got into Racing. Now established in Cat B, I’m averaging 3.8w/kg regular, so not too far away from Stepping upto Cat A at 4w/kg.
But even though pushing nearer the higher end of w/kg max in Cat B. I’m still nowhere near winning any of the Cat B races. Is it common to move up categories without winning? Seems odd I would move up without competing in the Cat I’m in. I think I need some pointers, I’ve watched some videos on when best to use PowerUps etc but it’s not making much difference. So I’ll welcome any advice you guys have.
I’ll usually push far more watts than most at approx 300w but I’m 79kg and the average in most races seems far lighter. The thought of having to push 350+watts to compete is sending my head into a spin! so I’m looking for other gains to compete.
