Does anyone know how Zwiftpower works? I see the results for the event I did, and it shows me getting 4th, even though I was about 3 miles in front of the "winner"

For anyone wanting to do Alpe, I'm going up it starting now, maybe 10 min before I hit the "gate". Aki.Sato|EXPO

I'm going slow, with a couple friends intending on joining, you can shell me once we hit the gate.

Been jumping in to B races after regular weekend work outs. Yeah I have no idea how zwiftpower works either. Start like 200 something end up in like top 60, zwiftpower says I got top 10. Pretty sure there were more than 10 people in front of me in my category. Basically doing it to get some extra intensity/miles and it provides motivation.

I finally used the Wahoo desk I bought. Yesterday I hopped on, loaded zwift on my phone, turned on a z2 erg mode workout, and started pedaling while working on my laptop. Being able to pull the desk back and forth and lean on it with my forearms makes a huge difference. I was able to get almost 2 hours in while maintaining a reasonable level of productivity. This may be a gamechanger for me!

You have to register, which means changing you're account name so they can 'find it'. 2 years ago they used to include everyone in the results but there were some privacy issues so now its only registered Zwiftpower users.

I find that eliminates 50-70% of the riders in most rides.

Ah, right forgot you had to register with zwift power and give your permission. I kind of just thought it was because someone in B field is putting out 5.0w/kg for most of the race.

This is a bit late, but that looks to be the timed group ride type and not a ride/race by distance ... in those events the positions are pretty much meaningless. (I have seen speculation on the zp forums that they are dependent on network lag)

Also if anyone is doing the Wed. USAC series or other events like the 3R Spring Loaded Series, or the Thursday night KOA race ... I am Ned Bowen on zwiftpower.

I figured that it was because I wasn't registered with Zwiftpower at the time.

Yeah, I got my first "win" from zwiftpower, but it sort of takes the joy out of it knowing that, in reality, I was 10th out of 30 or so. Not sure if everyone in front of me was over the power limit or just didn't bother to register with zwiftpower, but they had me as first out of 6 or so. Honestly, the fact that the ride resulted in a new estimated FTP was more exciting (in that neither really means anything, but at least the FTP thing tells me I got a good workout) than "winning" when everyone in front of me was dq'd or not playing the same game.
