You must race in the category that is indicated in your profile data on zwiftpower.com.  ZwiftPower continuously monitors your performance and calculates your category on a rolling basis for the last 90 days.  Examples below:

 

  • You must be a Triathlon NZ member https://triathlon.kiwi/trinzmembership/ (select social membership if you are just participating in the Zwift Series – $10/yr)
  • If this series is your first time racing in the Tri NZ League please register here: https://trinz.typeform.com/to/P6oCqt (Series 1 participants do not need to re-register)
  • All riders must opt-in to ZwiftPower
  • Participants must enter the correct category as indicated above [Determining your Race Category]
    • Race #1 is an individual Time Trial that will be used to inform race category (for those new to Zwift racing)
    • For those that upgrade category during the season they will be moved up a category and lose points gained in lower category racing (so if you are on the cusp, go up a category)
  • Choosing a lower category than what your ZwiftPower profile states will lead to disqualification
  • zPower riders (those not on smart trainers or with power meters) will be allowed in results but not podiums
  • Height and Weight data entered in Zwift must be accurate and up-to-date, all top 5 finishers in each category are subject to height and weight verification

WKG: exceeded category power limits

UPG: rider has entered a category lower than what ZwiftPower profile identified
