Not sure where someone was saying that the TomTom, Strava account and something else were deliberately set in different time zones to confuse matters - but I'm fairly sure Strava just does that based on where it thinks you live.
I live in Australia but spend a fair bit of time running in the USA and although Garmin Connect will adjust, when the activities appear in Strava it always reflects the time in Australia when the run took place, e.g. 1am or whatever.
I tried to adjust for this before a trip last year by changing my location on Strava to the USA and all that did was completely confuse the mobile app to the point that it stopped working. The website kept recording things in Australian time I think. So I don't think Team Robbie did that deliberately, they likely wouldn't have the know-how to adjust it even if they wanted to.
