Hahaha man...I do, but getting utterly destroyed by a 60+ dude doing 7w/kg at each little/medium/large bump is starting to mess with my sanity. That nemesis feature you put has him there every time I look at my profile.

I have been very unfortunate to have similar race schedules with him. :) Well at least I know I cannot hold PRO figures like him. :P

The real issue is they affect race outcomes, and therefore in Zwift you will never truly be able to confidently employ race strategies or race craft. It will remain a "Training Tool" / "Game".

And what I mean is, how are racers going to be secure in attacking, or trying to establish a break, knowing that their effort will be wasted, because some dude or dudes are sitting in the pack, single-highhandedly pulling everyone back to attackers, with unrealistic power / unrealistic HR. It makes the races nonsensical IMO.

This is a major issue if Zwift ever wants to be taken seriously as an alternative racing platform.
Apart from the lols, I am sure that this will be improved, especially if leagues are established with monitoring from the organisers, with some extra validation on the participating riders.

On the side we can still and should have the current standard preconfigured races that are now by the few dozen every day for everyone's pick as a "training/game" as you said.

There is a fine balance between fully calibrated/weighed "serious" zwifters and the general population in zwift. We need both. :)

and what do we do about wheel on trainers vs direct drive its clear their is a massive difference between the two. A league system sounds good with proper checks
