Hey look I use Zwift as a tool to train, I tend not to care about the actual results.
Zwift is a perfect tool, and its there for me to get results on the actual road when season starts.
I tend to use the races in place of my long Z4 efforts.
But this morning was just so egregious

This dude below racing history and power is all over the place, not consistent.
Took all competitiveness out of it.
At some point, race organizers should be allowed to ban certain people from entering races in Zwift.

He's on the CEVAZ suspended list so gets DQ from most rides. Zwift events and some other race organisers elect not to use that rule.

Yep its one thing to DQ them after, the issue still remains that they affect the in race outcomes.
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to stop them joining a race. Zwift are planning to allow “closed club” events, which may possibly allows us to exclude anyone not pre-registered
wow that german guy is something else ha ha tis a problem tho cos you go chasing and burn too many matches doing so.
I understand that it can be frustrating to see that riders in your race are cheating or show suspicious signs. But please keep in mind that when you post a name or profile on the forum, this can have a big impact on that person. For this reason, I would like to ask you to contact the race organizer or CEVA Z (me amongst others) directly if you suspect that the power of a rider is, intentionally or unintentionally, incorrect.

If you want to stop known offenders from entering races, the best way to make this happen is to raise a ticket with Zwift about this issue. I know for sure that a couple of the bigger race organizers will be happy to use this feature if Zwift will make it available to them.
