As bike racers, we cherish the post-race discussion in the parking lot of the local crit or the chats over coffee after the group ride, and we want to honor those rituals here on our forum.
Now that the ZwiftPower forums are read-only, we want to bring that discussion here. Our forum has some differences in structure, so we ask you to bear with us as we refine this process. This is a community experience, and community feedback will be valued.
When creating a new race discussion thread, follow this template and keep these guidelines in mind as the discussion progresses:
For discussion about individual races
Post-Race: [RACE NAME - RACE DATE - (optional) GENDER]
Ex: Post-Race [3R Tick Tock Flat Race - 20 Jan 2021 - Women]
For discussion about a GC or league:
GC/League: [GC/League Name - Season - (optional) GENDER]
Ex: GC/League: [6Points Mallorca League - Winter '21 - Men]
When discussing the race or the league, please remember these guidelines:
Posts or comments directly targeting or accusing another racer of cheating based on power, heart rate, weight, height, gender, category, or any other factor will not be tolerated and will be removed.
Discussion about variances in personal performance or helping others understand their variances from race to race are welcome, and helping one another is encouraged. Again, this is not fuel to accuse one another of cheating. We handle those conversations offline using the procedure in this thread.
Any discussion which culminates in accusatory or inflammatory language, is demeaning in nature, is directly meant to incite, or is otherwise intentionally mean will not be tolerated and will be removed.
Remember the human element to all of this. We are here to have spirited, engaging, and fun discussion about racing that we all care about, and each comment is from a real person. Don’t say on the forum what you wouldn’t say in person.
