I race cyclocross and have done a few races on zwift. In cyclocross I have done a few sprints that were around 1000-1200 at the end of races. However, on zwift I rarely hit over 600. the racing is just different even in the pack you still have to pedal a good bit to stick in the draft. Also, even if I am fresh and just try to do sprints on my trainer I dont get anywhere near to my real life max. It just feels weird to sprint on a trainer and I cant do it very well. I always go out side if I need to do sprints. All of that being be said, from what I have read here, I think that it will always bother you if you dont get one that can go higher. its better to get what you want and have peace of mind than to have that nagging feeling in the back of your head.
