Switching from Slope vs Erg mode

I’ve been working on short sprints lately and find it easier to switch between erg to slope during the sprints however I notice that at times slope does not activate and my trainer simply spins freely.

I’m trying to determine if this is as designed in TR or if it’s something with my trainer / TR combination ?

I can confirm that slope mode works when starting a fresh workout though and even works sometimes mid work out just not consistently.

Anyone else experience this ?

Trainer: Elite Direto (Ant+ and/or BTE)
TR Software: Windows OS

I suggest contacting support@trainerroad.com so they can review the log files and offer suggestions from that.


Yep, I had the same issue a few weeks ago and support suggested I do the following:

1) Open Windows Explorer 📁, and insert %localappdata% into its address bar, and press [Enter] .

2) Scroll down until you find a folder named TrainerRoadData

3) Right click that folder and click " Delete "

4) Empty the Recycle Bin

This didn’t work, however they also advised restarting my PC, which seemed to fix the problem. Therefore i’m not sure if it was a combination of doing both, or just a simple restart!
