Alafia Classic Results
« on: April 04, 2011, 03:17:14 PM »
Had a great time at the race this weekend. 
There seemed to be some confusion at the finish of the solo beginners easy race.  When I looked at my times at the race I was pretty tired.  I didn't realize what was wrong.  There is no way I rode 4 laps under 40 minutes per lap.  I was riding a single speed.  At the end of the race my average was 10.8.  My total ride time was 5 hours 53 minutes.  I was given 8 laps, but I know I only rode 7.  I mentioned this, but  only the time from lap 8 was taken off.  My top speed is about 14.5 to 15 mph.  I don't know what happened, but I know sometimes it does happen! 
Thanks to all the helpers and volunteers that made my first ever win so much fun.

I'm saying my times are too fast.  I don't think I could ride 9 miles of single track for 4 laps that fast.   But maybe I am the monster I wish I was..... ;D

We reviewed all three sets of sheets, we had one person writing numbers by the person who was calling the numbers, two people at the table writing them down and 1 person on the computer. All 4 people got down 8 laps for you. You DID ride 8 laps unless someone had your number taped to them and went through for you.... :)
 
Guess u do not know your own strength...

I got 2nd place and as I finished my 6th lap - you finished right behind me - had to be your 7th - then you went out 1 more time = 8 laps

Heck it took us 3 guys to get 7 laps in.  I'm impressed no matter what division this dude was in.  Congrats on the first place.

Raymond Wells has reviewed the paper records and the computer record.  I really did 8 laps in 6 hours.  No wonder my legs still hurt this morning!  I loved the event and now I can prepare to crush you all!!! ::)

Really, I had a great time and am glad I did so well.  How do you know which category to race if you haven't done them much before?  Is there a guideline for speed/distance?

Actually the last lap I felt like barfing and walked through the mud and water cause I couldn't pedal my bike through it!  Thanks for the words.  I will quit worrying about it.  I did have fun and have never done that well in my cycling life before. 
Thanks FACTORe.
