Group categories and start times
Check your category with Virtuslo Category Calculator based on your FTP (95% of your Peak20min power output):
|Solo Rider on a Road Bike||
|Speed on Flat at FTP (km/h)|
|39km/h to 40km/h||B||+1min|
|38km/h to 39km/h||C||+2min|
|37km/h to 38km/h||D||+3min|
Generally, your profile data at zwiftpower.com (abbreviated as ZP) continuously monitors your performance for the last 90 days (~3 months). If you are new and didn’t participate in an event on Zwift yet or don’t know your category yet, use 95% of your best 20-minute effort to calculate your Virtuslo Category.
Important note: We are 100% dependent on Zwiftpower monitoring and their statistical service. If you are close to the Category limit, and you are not a very experienced Zwifter or long-time rider familiar with your power output, we recommend choosing a higher Category. It can be heartbreaking if you simply improve during League, with your heart pumping more blood, lungs extracting more Oxygen, and legs pushing pedals stronger and get filtered from results, relegated to a higher Category with a new start from Zero.
To score points rider must finish the stage and be listed in ZP results. Daily race result counts for the general classification (GC). Riders daily finishing rank translates into GC Points. The winner in GC will be the one with the highest cumulative score of 7 best races out of 8. Worst week deletetion will be applied after week 4.
| GC Points
Example of the general classification after 8 weeks:
|Rider||Week #1||Week #2||Week #3||Week #4||Week #5||Week #6||Week #7||Week #8||Sum|
In case of an equal amount of points in GC between two riders, then Total Finish Points are the second Tie-breaker and Bonus Points for FAL are the third Tie-breaker.
A rider with most points gathered during the serié will wear yellow.
Leaders jersey (the dress code)
We kindly ask the current Leader of the GC competition to wear a special Yellow jersey reserved only for the race leader with yellow socks for the time of his leadership in this event. It is a unique privilege, obligation, and the burden of visibility that comes along with leadership. All current leaders from every group will also have special privilege with a yellow beacon assigned during their leadership.Rest of the field: we kindly ask you to avoid wearing a Yellow CRCA jersey and yellow socks for the time of this event. With yellow avoidance, you show respect to the leader and his special privilege. But do not hesitate to attack and grab the jersey for the next stage if you can!
Instruction: during ingame press the P button on your keyboard and write “CRCANYC” code. This unlocks this yellow jersey. Now go into the garage and change your jersey before the race.
