Hey, just completed my 3rd zwift race and got disqualified with the UPG code. I raced my first race a few weeks ago as a B and got dropped down to C cat after the race, not sure why after two races of posting similar power numbers I would be bumped back to a B.

Not sure if its an error, or if I should in fact be riding as a B.

Thanks,

KG.

Your first race was 3.198 w/kg (95% of 20mins) so therefore you were categorised Cat C.

Your second race was 3.265 w/kg so your average FTP for 2 races was taken - 3.231 w/kg which put you just over the cat C limit into Cat B.

For your next race you were expected to enter Cat B and as you didn't you received the UPG code.
Hi

I am also confused about UPG results. I am been disqualified for a couple of races now and my avg w/kg is within the provided limits. Surely I can not stay in the higher category forever, as we get older we get weaker.

Cheers

Summary:-
Use your ZwiftPower WKG Category for race entry.
If you don't by 'Catting Down' then your performance is irelevant.
Your average w/kg is not used for categorisation; 95% of 20 mins is what is considered.
