good point - a race with a low number of entrants probably shouldn't count against you since obviously getting 1st of 3 usually isn't as big of an accomplishment as when there are 20 or 30 people in the race. USACycling deals with this by assigning points based on the number of entrants and the dura...
Well if you won 5 races in a row that's pretty dominant... so maybe the alternative is you're forced to take a break and let others have some fun OR you get pushed into the B's. That seems like a reasonable suggestion to me: people that don't want to push themselves at the next level just have to ta...
Thanks for the quick replies. I have no fear of that happening to me! :-)
I've seen a few references to "cone gate" on the KISS Races fb page. Could someone explain what that is?


thanks,

This suggestion has some merit but seems like a complicated arrangement. I think at the end of the day people want to race with people of similar abilities and have the race be interesting in the sense that they can be competitive in their category. There seem to be a few problems: - sandbaggers tha...
Keep in mind that sometimes the HR data is unreliable. I've had races where my Garmin Vivo Active just won't read above a certain value. And then other times when it's pegged at 255 (which is clearly inaccurate). However this thread and several others all keep coming back to verification/validation ...
Good points here. Would be nice to not see the 50 kg "A`s" wine about big strong B`s who can hang in on flat races. "You can`t be a B" "You cheat" etc. That's another thing... if you're on the small side you have to generate at least about 10% more power just to hang on the flats compared with some...
Thanks.

However is there a way to tell from the main page that lists all events? If not, it might be worth adding an icon for it.

I recently got "upgraded" to be an A. In part this happened because I've been working on long climbing efforts and my FTP is now calculated to be above 4 w/kg. While that's true, it's also true that my 1min and 5min power are nowhere near sufficient to hang with the A group in a race (it's still Feb...
How does one identify a race that is not mass-start? That is, I want to participate in races where each category races by itself. I really do not like the mass start events because they always seem to degenerate into "suffer as long as you can to stay with the fastest guys and then TT to the finish"...
