One point four W/kg!!! What kind of bull is that? What's the point?
That used to bother me as well, especially in a race or group ride and would just make me think i was being punished for being fat (or in reality, putting my real weight in Zwift). I just continue on knowing at least that I am doing myself a favour by making the experience as real as possible for the purpose of improving myself.

What do people think they achieve by entering fake information and breezing through the maps getting no work out?
