Any teams that finish with less than 3 members will NOT be eligible for points.

RULES:
  • Sign up using Google Forms   Registration opens 1st Nov 2019 and Registration will close 8th Dec 2019 @ 11:59PM EST
  • Women only
  • Power-ups allowed
  • Heart Rate Monitor required for A and B category racers
  • zPower is not eligible for individual podium in A or B categories
  • No TT bikes
  • Teams are encouraged to draft each other and use team tactics.
  • Please select your category based on your 1 hour FTP, NOT your expected watts/kg over your race distance. Any rider may choose to “cat up”. Racers found significantly over category limits will be DQd and their points will not contribute to their team. If the DQd member drops their team below the 3 finisher minimum, the entire team will be DQd from points. Admin decision is final.
  • Edit your screen name to include your Team Code listed in the teams spreadsheet. Ex: Jane Doe [FEAR<] F-D3
 
Don’t have a club but want to race? No worries!

Riders are also encouraged to be proactive and reach out to a trade team of their choice. A list of teams is available here: Zwift Teams
  • IF you are unable to get in contact with a trade team, when filling out the registration form, under team name, enter “Find me a team” and we will pass your contact information along to the trade team leaders. By typing “Find me a team” you are giving AWTC Admins permission to share contact information with a trade team lead. The trade team leads will contact you and you will be an honorary member of their team for a day to help fill out their rosters!  Fearless admins will pair up any remaining unattached riders once sign-up closes.
  • Admins will confirm that you have an active ZwiftPower account, and we will review your ZwiftPower information to ensure you are signed up for the correct category based on race performances in the last 3 months. Please sign up for the category that corresponds with your FTP, NOT the w/kg you expect to hit during this race distance. If we find that you signed up for a category that is lower than your best recent performances, we WILL REQUIRE you to cat up!


POINTS AND SCORING
PODIUM: There will be Gold, Silver, and Bronze Podium for each category. 

Teams are encouraged to draft each other and use team tactics. The top 3 riders from each team will be scored according to finish time. Teams can have up to 5 riders, and all riders who finish their distance can earn QOM or sprint points for their team. Having more than 3 riders helps allow for a rider to have technical issues or DNF, and the team can still be successful as a whole!

Rider Scoring
  • The top 3 riders from each team will be awarded points based on finish time.
    • Points will be awarded in descending order, with 1st place being awarded 36* points, 2nd place 35, etc. from the first finisher to the last.
      *Note - the number of points given to 1st place will be adjusted to ensure all riders that finish receive points.
    • All riders who complete the distance will receive points, but only the top 3 finishers will count towards the team's point total.
    • zPower podium finishers in A and B categories will receive negative points to place them in 4th

QOM Scoring
  • ALL RIDERS from each team, provided they finish the event, are eligible to earn QOM points for their team (detailed rules below).
    • QOM segment: Titans Grove Forward https://www.zwiftpower.com/segments.php?id=38
    • Riders will be scored within their own category (in other words, there will be a "1st place" awarded in A, B, C and D categories through 5th place).
    • Points will be awarded as follows for the top 5 finishers of each segment, in each category: 1st place = 5, 2nd place = 4, 3rd place = 3, 4th place = 2, 5th place = 1. Since the highest team score wins, winning the segments could provide a huge advantage to your team
    • Points will be awarded to the fastest QOM times per cat across the entire event, NOT per lap.
    • In the event of a tie, points will be awarded as follows -- example: if 3 are tied for first place, all 3 will receive 5 points. The 4th finisher will get 2 points, and the 5th will get 1 point. 
    • More than 5 finishers, per Cat, may receive points depending on QOM times. Example: 3 finishers with shared 1st place time (5pt each), and 4 finishers with shared 2nd place time (2pt each). Resulting in 7 finishers with points awarded.
  • Race administrators will provide final decisions on awarding of QOM points, and points are based on ZP data, NOT the rankings shown in Zwift during the game.

Sprint Scoring

  • ALL RIDERS from each team, provided they finish the event, are eligible to earn Sprint points for their team (detailed rules below).
  • QOM Segment: Fuego Flats Short  https://www.zwiftpower.com/segments.php?id=34
  • Riders will be scored within their own category (in other words, there will be a "1st place" awarded in A, B, C and D categories through 5th place).
  • Points will be awarded as follows for the top 5 finishers of each segment, in each category: 1st place = 5, 2nd place = 4, 3rd place = 3, 4th place = 2, 5th place = 1. Since the highest team score wins, winning the segments could provide a huge advantage to your team!
  • Points will be awarded to the fastest Sprint times per cat across the entire event, NOT per lap.
  • In the event of a tie, points will be awarded as follows -- example: if 3 are tied for first place, all 3 will receive 5 points. The 4th finisher will get 2 points, and the 5th will get 1 point.  
  • More than 5 finishers, per Cat, may receive points depending on Sprint times. Example: 3 finishers with shared 1st place time (5pt each), and 4 finishers with shared 2nd place time (2pt each). Resulting in 7 finishers with points awarded.

Team Scoring
  • Points are additive, and the 3 teams with the highest number of points in each category will make the podium! Team scores will be added together from the following:
    • The scores of the top 3 finishers (if a team has less than 3 finishers, they will not receive a team score)
    • QOM points (as explained above). QOM points can be earned by any member of the team that finishes the required distance for their category. If a QOM rider does not finish, then their QOM points will not count.
    • Sprint points (as explained above). Sprint points can be earned by any member of the team that finishes the required distance for their category. If a Sprint rider does not finish, then their Sprint points will not count.
  • Any A/B category team that wins podium with zPower member(s) will stand unless the zPower members results are clearly beyond reasonable ability. Admin’s decision will be final.
  • Here is an example scenario for two A teams -- let’s say there are 36 finishers, A1 finishes 1,2,5,6. Team A2 finishes 3,4,7,8.  Team A1 points = 103 (36+35+32), Team A2 points = 97 (34+33+30). QOM and sprint points will then be added to finalize podium placement. The top 5 times on the QOM segment and sprint segment receive additional points, so this could be a big game changer!
