Five Island Winter Zwift League 2021/2

Mon, 15 Nov 2021 09:23:03 +0000

Overview


Athletes from Gibraltar, Guernsey, Iceland, Isle of Man and Jersey will score points for their islands in each of five Zwift races held during the winter of 2021/2. 


Any athlete who can claim a reasonable tie to that island and uses the appropriate island flag in Zwift can score points for that island (no individual points totals are registered). 


All athletes must be registered on Zwift Power and race in the appropriate category indicated. Any DQs issued by Zwift Power will stand. 


Each race will have a maximum of 250 points available (except for the final race where 500 will be available). League results will be published on the Jersey Tri Club Facebook (public) group as soon as possible after each event. 


A Committee of Vaughan Robinson (Chair, Jersey), Emily Squire (Guernsey), Chris Walker (Gibraltar), Juan Kinley (Isle of Man) and Sigurour Orn Ragnarsson (Iceland) will: a) choose each of the five events, b) decide on the points distribution for each event, c) communicate the timings of events, rules, results and related matters to their domestic athletes and d) resolve any disputes or queries which may arise from time to time. 

Event 1 19:00 GMT Sunday 28 November 2021: The Stampede (ITT) by Herd Racing League 37.12km Tempus Fugit 


The first 10 riders (from the five islands) in each category (A-D) will score 10, 9, 8, 7…, 1 points. Subject to each island only being able to accumulate points for two riders, a third rider will instead zero out the points available for other islands. For example, if Iceland had the top three riders they would score 19 points and the other islands would only be able to score positions 4-10 (with points of 7-1).


In addition to the above 220 ranking points, 30 bonus points will be available for the following: 

1 points for the island whose rider has the highest 20min watts (in each category A-D) 

1 points for the island whose rider has the highest 5min watts (in each category A-D) 

1 points for the island whose rider has the highest 1min watts (in each category A-D) 

1 points for the island whose rider has the highest 30sec watts (in each category A-D) 1 points for the island whose rider has the highest 15sec watts (in each category A-D) 

4 points for the island with the most overall riders 

3 points for the island with the second most overall riders 

2 points for the island with the third most overall riders 

1 point for the island with the fourth most overall riders. 

Riders in Zwift Power with an A+ classification (appears as a black A) cannot score ranking points, but can score bonus points. Only riders appearing on the ‘Filtered’ view will count in all cases, those filtered out (DQ’d) will not be counted for the determination of any points.
