im short and light and never win nowt, did the alp yesterday did ok too (best power figures to date); had one women go at a constant 4,7 w/kg, flat, up down didnt matter. was with her for a good part of the ride. plenty of the 100 mile a week strava riders too smashing up it at over 4 w/kg. Your re...
a very general rule is bigger humans have bigger hearts so they need to beat less to pump the blood round the body, teny tiny guys like myself are like hummingbirds and have to go some cos some simply because the heart is smaller I am quite sure my heart rate is far lower than a 200kg fat person. I...
OnTopic: Lets take a rider with height 180cm, weight 75kg and FTP is 300 watt and we call him Rider A. Now Rider A will go for height doping and the height is lowered to 160cm. This rider we will call Rider A'. We simulate a ride and here we find that Rider A' is faster than Rider A, like suggested...

I think we have a very different experience on zwift. Logic and theory would suggest on a stage with lots of climbing w/kg would be more important than watts. This isn't the case whatever the terrain watts wins. I accept this is correct on flats but should be balanced on climbs. I watched a 60kg ri...
Yes, this is a nice discussion....but what about those who race but not registered at ZP?They also do have big influences on the race and the result.
I just take it as a training and I really don't care if others are fair, I only do care if the simulation is fair....and from my perspective it is far away from fair...so that makes me really not care at all if others are fair...Zwift is already unfair within.
You can also take it as an advantage...your training gets harder and maybe you find some stimulus to get the maximum out of yourself.
Time gains in Zwift are made by lighter riders on climbs too, I’m yet to ride a climb in Zwift where lighter riders don’t pull away like they do in real life. It happens every ride. In real life I am not claiming to be a mountain goat, I would not beat a fitter lighter guy or girl up a long hill. F...
