Like the last video so people understand not all zpower riders are the same with various different equipment being used. If the two classic trainers mentioned (kurt kinentic road machine or cyclops/saris fluid 2) are that good according to third party testing then zwift should adjust zpower so thoes riders are not docked points or results in events when then thoes two better in accurateness with zpower then budget smart trainers.

watched this sprint tips last week and adopted the strategy this morning, “not sprinting too early” I watched the front guys go but held back as knew it was too early (300m+ Champs so incline aswell), reeled them in and won by a good margin, thanks alot!
