How are the group ride results determined? My wife and I did a 90 minute group ride, she rode 22 miles, i rode 30, she came on 5th, i came in 37. How is there an order other than distance if everyone is riding 90 minutes? No idea how they arrive at these results, any guesses?
For group rides based on duration, the results are entirely random, so can be ignored.
It does seem odd that ride organisers have the option to have positions active for duration-based events (not all do), but I know that some choose to use it only in order to be able to communicate their current position in the chat during the ride to a large field, where some riders lose sight of the yellow beacon.
