I’d like to earn the TFC jersey, but so far have not had any luck. Am hoping others can provide some advice.
Participated in a couple TFC rides that showed in the results while searching for #jerseyunlock rides, but did not get the jersey unlocked.
Visited their website and saw that to earn the jersey the ride must be 1) a race, and 2) on Friday. Some sentences include a stipulation that it be on Friday “night”; however, it can be when it is night in the UK, even if it isn’t nighttime in the rider’s time zone.
So, after riding in two races on Friday, one when it was night in the UK, and one when it was night in the EST timezone, still no jersey.
But… both were D-cat races, and I’m not D-cat. Maybe TFC has disqualified me because I rode too well in the D-category? If so, how can I tell if I’m DQ’d?
Anyway… following that, I rode the open-category race on Friday at 2pm EST, but still no jersey. The last thing might be to ride the open-category at 8:30pm EST?
Or, is there some other element I’m missing?
For example, do I need to sign up for the race officially, possibly on a website?
Do I need to be an actual race candidate to get the jersey; that is, do I need to have a series of things enabled to qualify as a race contestant? Although I’m in zwiftpower and have my Zwift account connected to my Strava account, it may be this is not enough for TFC themselves to have everything they need to see me as an actual racer.
Grasping for straws here… but it is possible the jersey is called something else than TFC in my garage? Maybe I already have it? I looked through my jerseys for something with black lettering that says TFC, but if when I maybe already earned it, it was called something else and looked different in the past? Therefore, the more recent rides won’t provide a newer version of the jersey?
