2023 Summer Series – Event #1 Standings
The BAOC 2023 Summer Series is underway, with the first event held in San Luis Obisbo on May 28th as part of the three-day SLO Go! event.
As previously detailed, the scoring of this event is a little different than the other Series events. The Series “Short” times are the times from the Stage #3 Short course Sunday morning, and the Series “Long” times are the times from the Stage #3 Sprint course plus the times from the Stage #4 Chase course Sunday afternoon. Hence, only valid finishers of both courses can record a score for the Long competition.
To get accurate scores we need the ages and genders of the competitors (otherwise we assume you are a 21-year-old male). It’s great to see so many athletes from other clubs in the results, but in general I only have the ages of the BAOC athletes easily available. And three BAOC runners for which I do not have ages are Jan Wignall, David Williams, and Kaushik Komndur. If anyone of these people—especially anyone who intends to compete in further Summer Series events—wants to send me their year of birth, I will happily make sure the scores reflect this (you will almost certainly boost your score if I know your correct year of birth).
The SLO event scores (and hence the Series standings to date) are given below. A huge thank you to Rex Winterbottom, Matej Sebo, and all the volunteers who helped make this event possible. A special mention to BAOC Secretary John Richardson who refreshed the spreadsheet we use for scoring the series, thus making my task a lot easier. Thanks John! Although any errors are, of course, mine and mine alone.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Mills College on Sunday, June 11th, for Event #2!
