Reporting Suspicious Behaviour

The Zwift Racing League has been designed to provide both fun and fair competition as well as to grow the Zwift Racing community in an inclusive manner. WTRL and Zwift do work hard in the background to enforce the rules and ensure that our aims are met.

We would like to remind all competitiors and teams that social media is not the place to be raising concerns on the legitimacy of riders, teams or a competition and there are official channels to report any suspicious performances.

The official channels are as follows:

  • ZWIFT: Please report using THIS form, ensuring you include all requested information.
  • WTRL: Send an email including the Zwift ID or ZwiftPower profile link, event ID numbers, full details and supporting evidence to [email protected]

PLEASE NOTE To maintain the privacy of our members, we won’t be able to update you on the outcome of your report. Please rest assured we will investigate each concern fully.

UPDATES
ZRL Community Divisions End-Of-Season Final League Standings
Rule has been in effect since July 2020 - previous Community version included only ZRL Premier Division definition.
  • At the end of the SEASON, the team with the most SERIES POINTS shall be declared the winner.
  • In the event of a tie on Total Series / League Points, teams are then ranked in the same way as the weekly rankings. This order is Total Season Points, Total Finish Line Points, Total FAL points, Total FTS points. In the event that this still results ine a tie, it would fall to whichever team had the highest placing rider in the final race.
Understanding the ZRL 4-Race-Category-Upgrade ruling.
Added for clarification - rule is unchanged.

If a racer is upgraded in category by Zwift, they must meet the following criteria to be allowed to continue their season with that team in that division:

  1. START at least 4 races for their team at or below category for the division.
  2. Racer must not have received ANY power related disqualifications in those 4 races.

Note that POWER LIMITS as detailed above remain in effect at all times. Exceeding will cause results to be annulled. Please consider riding in a higher division if you are at or close to an upper power boundary.

If a racer starts 2 races with one team and 2 races with another, this does not meet the condition above.
Refer to the Appearances column in Team Management for a running total of races.

Applies to Playoff races too.

Scoring

Points Race Scoring

In every race there will be plenty of points for teams to work together to win. These are as follows:

  1. Rider Finish Position Points
  2. First Across a Line (FAL)
  3. Fastest Through a Segment (FTS)

Rider Finishing Position Points

Bonus Intermediate Points (Points Races Only)

  • First-Across-the-Line (FAL) Intermediate Points will be added to a riders score at designated intermediate sprints and climbs on designated laps. These are always 10 down to 1 for 1st to 10th position. If a rider is disqualified, points will pass to the next rider in the list but points will then only be available 1st to 9th . Refer to the ZRL Course Schedule for intermediates in play for each event.
  • Fastest-Through Segment (FTS) Points will be awarded to the top 10 Fastest Times throughout the race at designated Sprints and climbs. This is scored per race (not per lap) on all passes through and scored as 20,15,10,7 to 1 for 1st,2nd,3rd,4th to 10th. If a rider posts the fastest time on lap 1 and the 2nd fastest time on lap 2 - the rider would earn 35 points for 1st and 2nd place. Do not under estimate the value of these points. Unlike FAL points, the top 10 will ALWAYS score.
  • There are no Bonus Points available in team Time Trial events.
Position 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
First (per lap) 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Fastest (whole race) 20 15 10 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

TEAM TIME TRIALS

Teams are ranked in division by the time of the 4th rider. 4 riders MUST finish to score League Points

League Points are allocated as per the League Points table below based on team rank. 1st place is 20 points, 2nd is 19 and so on.

LEAGUE POINTS

  • For each Points Race the total Individual rider scores will be COMBINED (totalled) by team and ranked.
  • Team Time Trials are scored on TEAM finishing position.
  • The team with the HIGHEST total COMBINED scores will be declared the winner of the race.
  • In the event of a tie in COMBINED scores (only applies to Points Races), teams are then ranked in the following order:
    1. Finish Points Total
    2. FAL Points Total
    3. FTS Points Total
  • If a teams total points are still tied, the position of each tied team’s best rider across the finish line shall determine the tied team’s ordering, with the team with the higher placed rider placing higher.

The Top 20 teams are awarded LEAGUE POINTS for each race (Points Races or TTT) in each DIVISION of each LEAGUE as per the descending ranking as follows:

1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th 11th 12th 13th 14th 15th 16th 17th 18th 19th 20th

ZRL Community Division final League Standings
  • At the end of the SEASON, the team with the most SERIES POINTS shall be declared the winner.
  • In the event of a tie on Total Series / League Points, teams are then ranked in the same way as detailed above. This order is Total League/Season Points, Total Finish Line Points, Total FAL points, Total FTS points. In the event that this still results in a tie, it would fall to whichever team had the highest placing rider in the final race.
ZRL Premier Division final League Standings
  • At the end of the SEASON, the team with the most SERIES POINTS shall be declared the winner.
  • In the event of a tie on Total Series / League Points, the secondary order of ranking will be the Total rider points. In the event all of that was still a tie, it would fall to whoever placed higher in the final race.
