Even if it's not an exact replica of real life, I think it's great to be able to measure yourself against the pros. With some intense training I'd get to the top before the pros could finish their second cup of coffee.
One thing that would help fairness in all races without changing catagories is this. Dont allow riders to get draft benefit from someone that is not in their catagory. Example. If u in a b race with the main group and the A’ s going flying by the top b’s will jump on thus creating a disparity in th...

I rarely see any good riders on the real roads who are 90+ KG but on Zwift there's a few.
On Zwift you don't have to go out in public in skin-tight lycra. It's a tough world out there for the bigger gentleman/lady.
What's the threshold for height doping flagging? I had 5'10" in my Zwift profile which put me at 178cm. I am really 5' 9.5" (and shrinking slightly ever year as I get older).

Personally I don't really care if I'm racing someone whose trainer is giving them say 10% extra power. I don't know them, so it's like racing a bot. What would piss me off though is things like random bursts of unnaturally high power that disrupt the pace or tactics of a race.
So my dreams of being an e-professional are over because I bought a Tacx Flux. Damn.

The Flux is the only smart trainer I've ever used, so I can't say whether it's perfectly accurate or not, but it (together with Zwift) is great fun.
Would three second intervals impact the 'variability index' metric, or not?
Hey Sticky, can you clarify what the 'Rank' column to the left of the 'Improvement' column shows? It contains numbers that appear to relate to 'Rank' in a person's profile/'about' section, but using me as an example, my current rank is 564.75 pts, but the number shown in the rank column in my last ...
