What is Socks4Watts Mystery Matchmaking?
Socks4Watts mystery matchmaking is a new way to group riders for Zwift racing. Rather than open up the typical A-E pens for riders to join, which results in repetitive and predictable racing, with matchmaking the fields are determined based on that week's signups. No more races against only 2 other riders, no more suffering week-in week-out just because you are near the bottom of a category. Variety is the spice of life, and Socks4Watts mystery matchmaking is here to help you experience being the hammer, just once in a while.
If you find true love in these races that is fantastic, but it is not the (sole) purpose of the events.
How will the fields be split?
We are partnering with ZwiftRacing.app and will primarily split riders based on ranking. In the future fields could be split by any number of different criteria... that's the Mystery part! We will always try to ensure fair fields, however they are split. Sometimes you may be one of the stronger riders in the field and sometimes one of the weaker, but you can always do you best to see if you can get a ranking increase, which is applied whenever you perform better than your ranking will have suggested versus the field on the day.
How does sign up work?
Complete the form with your name, Zwift ID and email. On the morning of the race you will be sent an email with a link to your specific race.
What do you do with my information?
The data you provide is used only for the purpose of defining the race fields. Your information is not kept on record, and the only email you will receive is the link to the race pen. Your information or email will not be used for marketing purposes by Socks4Watts or shared with anyone else. If you do not wish to provide your email, you can contact us separately to find out your race pen after the sign-up deadline has passed.
What are the rules?
DQs will be applied to any rider that did not go through the full sign up process, or has entered the wrong race.
