I’m a terrible Cat B racer according to Zwiftpower, yet in real life I cruise along blasting people off leaderboards on Strava and on the road. I’m a ...
I’m 190cm, my bars are nearly 200mm lower than my saddle.

Sounds great!
Above Cat D there is Cat C you know, it doesn’t cost any more to enter :D
