Race timing

Ran a 5k ZA tri- race today. When I finish the race the clock says 22:15. When I enter race results in zwift companion it says 22:35. When uploaded to Strava the segment for the race says 22:15. I notice that when the race countdown is out, the clock does not immediately start, it starts a bit further down the track. Why is this?

That’s when the official lead-in to the route starts and Zwift starts recording data for the .fit file. You were racing for 20s or so before that point.

I see. So in reality you are racing a bit longer than 5 k then…
