Can a Group Ride count as a Race?

Hello, yesterday I was surprised that a group ride that I
did count to my vELO score. I send an email to ZwiftRacing and they respond that this event is listed in ZwiftPower as a race. The event was: “Group Ride: Team Velos Social Sprint Series (D) on Flat Route in Watopia”. Can you chek what is wrong?

The one scheduled for next week looks like a group ride to me.

You might try contacting the event organizer (found in the description) and ask them to talk to the Zwift events team and the developers to clarify it.

I wonder if the fact that the event has primes is affecting how it’s interpreted.
