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!
