Display time gap

When you’re in a race with many riders you can just see the time gap of the riders nearby. You don’t know the time gap to the breakaway for example. It would be nice if the time gap could be presented like it does on a broadcast. See attached drawing.

as an extension it would also be good if that on group rides, the leaders time offset were always shown.
Often its difficult to know how far the leader is away.

Before Zwift locked the API there was a person that made a website that could do that.

I was going to say , it will take something like this , exposing an API to allow user created content is our ONLY chance for features like this . At the moment Zwift cant even get the Rider nearby functionality working consistently , accurately or even coherently .

Nice! I was exactly thinking about building this feature as a top layer… The only thing is, I find it hard to get in touch with the Zwift staff. I know Zwift is not publishing the event results etc on their API, if they would, it’d be a piece of cake for me to make this.

They are not publishing any data now on API, due to possible privacy GDPR/issues, but I think they have been shooting on a fly with an elephant gun. Zwift could simply anonymize names (or even better: only anonymize names of non-Zwiftpower users) and this type of race statistics can be developed within a few hours.

And neither should this take a lot of time for Zwift to release; if they just use the current Zwiftpower.c0m/cache3/live/results_-insertzwiftid-.json and anonymize names they are done already and then I or any other developer can make it.
