Race organiser does not require HRMs.
Is there a away to tell that they are the race organisers

Not easily but ZHR do not require HRMs and they also allow ZPower.
Ok thanks ...perhaps not the best league series then if ZPower allowed and not everyone has to abide by same rules ...back to wtrl ...shame

You may find subtle differences between race organisers but most insist on HRM in Cats A/B and podiums in C.
Don't assume that power is somehow "cheating" nor that HRMs prove the legitimacy of a rider, given that many "smart trainers" can be mis-calibrated (deliberately or otherwise) and HR readings can be faked more easily than power. Banning all riders with zPower is fruitless and discriminatory - an organiser would do better to look at each case individually, as I do.

Thanks for the explanation.... can’t see the point of cheating
