Hope everyone had a great New Year’s break. The ZwiftPower racing community asked for it, so we have created General Classification for the 2021 Tour de Zwift group rides. We thank you for your patience over the holiday break.
- Here’s the link for the General Classification on ZwiftPower
- The GC will award points for your best finish within 24 hours. i.e. if you race two races in the same day, finishing 10th in one and 9th in the other, you will be awarded points for 9th place and not 10th.
- The only events included in the GC are the events that are titled “TDZ Group Ride.” This means no rookie rides, no sightseeing rides, no running events, etc.
- You can race an event of any distance event, and have it count. The only thing that matters is your best finishing position.
- We have chosen to exclude from the results any zPower users (i.e. those using a classic trainer + speed sensor) and users with no heart rate data present for the event.
- There are no team competitions for this GC.
- All events will give the site-wide ranking points in congruence with the points system as outlined in the rankings FAQs.
- Not all the TdZ events are listed in the GC right now because they’re not on the site yet. As they show up, we will add them.
- We aren’t separating the GC by men and women, or long and short distances. They’re all “group ride” events for GC lumped into the one board.
- Men and women will have different rankings based on their ZP categories and this can be seen in the results with the filters. Clicking on “women” and then “A” for example will show how all category A women stack up against one another within the TdZ events. This will work if women raced with men or in any women’s only categories for the events in Zwift.
Tour de Zwift has always been a mass participation group ride celebrating our community and all of the worlds we offer. It is the biggest welcome and celebration of exploration of Zwift within the year. Our community has always treated TdZ in this way, however, those in our community all have different goals in mind and it’s evident that some will treat these events as a race.
The important thing to remember is that whatever your goal, we encourage you to ride at your own pace and explore Zwift: meet up with friends and ride a stage together; cruise along with the community and enjoy the social banter; or give it your all and see where you rank.
For those who are interested in seeing where you stack up against the field, we’ve listened to your feedback and created a General Classification on ZwiftPower.
