Team Tags will NOT be used in SEASON 2.
Season 2 will see the launch of TEAM-SPECIFIC-PER-EVENT racer sign-on links and no further use of Team Tags. When a rider clicks these links, they are taken through the WTRL website where you may be asked to login. The website will identify who you are (by your stored Zwift ID number) and what team you are in and update our race database accordingly. You will then be forwarded on to the Companion App or Zwift.com event sign-on page automatically where all you have to do is select the correct pen.
In order to allow competitive racing across the globe, a ladder system of leagues will be in operation. Separate League structures will exist for Men/Mixed and Women. Although the leagues have geographical names, teams can choose at registration the league that suits them best BUT they must race in the race events associated with that League. These are defined as:
ALL races use WTRL's unique RACE PASS system for riders to sign-on to INVITE-ONLY events. This is to ensure that non-team riders can not join the race and potentially interfere with race progression. Special team specific RACE PASS joining links will be provided by WTRL to all registered team Captains at least 24 hours in advance of each race start time. It is the responsibility of each team to ensure these joining links are distributed amongst their participating team riders ONLY and NOT to anyone that should not be in the team or race.
Leagues are based around the well-known ZwiftPower rider categories (which are based on wkg FTP and watts FTP. A Divisions Power Limits are determined by its denominating letter. ie Division B has a maximum Category rating of B. All riders in a B division must have been a B rider for at least their first 4 weeks of the season (not first 4 races)
|Men's / Mixed||Women's|
|Division A||> 4.0wkg FTP & minimum 250W FTP||> 3.7wkg FTP|
|Division B||Less than 3.99wkg FTP & minimum 200W FTP||Less than 3.69wkg FTP|
|Division C||less than 3.19wkg FTP & minimum 150W FTP||less than 3.19wkg FTP|
|Division D||less than 2.49wkg FTP||less than 2.49wkg FTP|
Each Division will contain a maximum of 20 teams. Where there are more than 20 teams registering for a particular division in season 1, additional sub divisions will be created making each Category Division expandable.
At the end of each SEASON 2 Teams will be promoted and 2 relegated from each division. Teams will not be relegated down a category ie a C Team would not be moved to a D division unless the team was explicitly request but would be expected to field D Category riders in the new season.
The top team in any division will be moved up to the division above regardless of Division of Category ie a division winning B team would be promoted to A regardless.
Teams must have competed in at least 8 ZRL races in any season to be automatically considered for promotion and at least 5 for relegation.
2 teams from each Division 1 will optionally be able to participate in a final 2 race back-to-back to declare Category World Champions. These are defined as the 'Play-Offs' for all Division A1 teams and the Season World Championships for Division B1,C1,D1 teams. 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed Division A1 teams, after the Playoffs will be offered the chance to complete the verification processes required and then entry to the ZRL Premier Division once approved. B1,C1 and D1 teams will race to determine the top B, C and D category Season World Champions.
Teams winning promotion to the Premier Division will be offered a custom in-game team kit of their design.
We are working on something special for Teams winning as Season World Champions.

For each race in each division, a rider can score points for their team based on their finishing position.
