Group categories and start times

We use standard zwiftpower.com category limits which are based on 95% of your Peak20min power output:

> 4.0 W/kg

  3.2 – 3.99 W/kg

2.5 – 3.19 W/kg

< 2.49 W/kg

Woman only

Starting times are separated per categories:

+ 0 minutes

+ 1 minute

& & + 2 minutes

Generally, your profile data at zwiftpower.com (abbreviated as ZP) determines in which category you should race. ZP continuously monitors your performance and calculates your Category on a rolling base 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 and divide it by your weight in kilograms and pick the correct category.

Example: 73 kg heavy rider has recorded his Peak20min effort during all-out climbing @289watts.

Category => (289W x 0.95) / 73kg = 3.76 W/kg => Cat

Important note: We are 100% dependent on ZP monitoring and their statistical service. This also means that if you get upgraded by ZP during the league, you will be upgraded in the points system and start with zero points in a higher Category. 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 higher Category with a new start from Zero.

Points system

First 30 riders over the finish line in each category score points in descending order: 30, 29, 28, 27,….., 4, 3, 2, 1 point(s).

The best 6 races out of 7 will count in the general classification (GC) standings. To score points rider must finish the stage and be listed in ZP results!

In case of an equal amount of points between two podium riders after 7 weeks, the second score will be used as follows:

The rider with a higher second score will be better placed since higher results during the entire series count more.
