Rode in the SISU KQOM event this morning (530a EDT). I signed up as a B, per my ZwiftPower rating and races from the last 6 months. It was a single pen event with A through D together. Once the leaderboard appeared in the race, I noticed a C next to my name (I am a low B-). Enjoyed the ride and set a new PB on the Volcano Climb. In ZwiftPower it shows me as “UPG” and only lists me in the filtered results. Zwift shows me in the C results in the companion app.
I signed up as B, wanted to ride as B, but Zwift pushed me down. I thought Category Enforcement only pushed you up???
That’s what I thought too, hence the concern. So, either I inadvertently changed pens after signup for B in the companion app or a potential for a bug. I confirmed yesterday that I was in B, so it was noticeable when I saw C on the leaderboard.
A secondary issue - if my ZwiftPower rating has been B for 6 months, why would Zwift have me as a C?
From a quick look I would say you have no ride within last 60 days which definitely put you in CE B category.
Question you might want to ask is why you got a UPG for your excellent C category win. You started a CE race, I assume, as C category with a ZwiftPower race category of B only to be told at end of race your ZP average of best three races ( not including this one) is now, and always was, B category !! Seems odd.
Well, how about that!! Thanks for pointing out that detail. I’ll take the W. I was going on the Zwift Companion results as 3rd, but ZwiftPower says I would have been 1st C, but for the UPG.
It is all complicated between Zwift Companion, ZwiftPower, and Category Enforcement. I’m happy to be riding and racing, but would love to not have so many conflicting inputs on performance. Ultimately, I just want to get better, and I get satisfaction from that. I set a new PB on the Volcano Climb today - and that is the important part.
You haven’t accidentally set your ZP profile to override let zwift decide category have you? One of our riders did that. Her numbers said she was a B (so she would autocat into B) but she’d set her category as A
