Nope. I was UPDing, going really fast, UPDing, and going really fast (for me).

Signe is an amazing rider hands down. For the brief moments I was riding next to her, and watching her ride away I was always impressed at how smooth and speedy of a rider she was.

I've checked the rules and they state;
Quote:
Any rider who is unable to finish the criterium will be given the maximum slow time plus 5 minutes
So shouldn't that give him a time of 18:47?

...and not all the riders appear to be listed. I'm sure Tue had quite a fast time on the set of results that were posted before - did he get disqualified or something?

It looks like they've made a concession for the third Yellow Line rider not being there and given them the same time as the slower of the two actual riders in the team.

Well, if we'd have known we could have done that, then Joe and myself would have sat out and taken the 5th and 6th place

Yellow team (Nathan and Beau) were penalized enough by NOT having a 3rd rider! So the decision, if I recall correctly, was to create a rider called Yellow Yellow and to assign that rider the time of the slower rider, which is why Nathan Hoover and "Yellow Yellow" have identical times.

Signe is a wonderful rider. I loved racing along with her thruout the first 4 days. Then her team got off to an excellent start on day 5, and we didn't see much of them. They were in 12th place (to our 9th) after day 1 and ended up in 8th (to our 10th) by the end.

I think the results should be posted differently... I mean, they should take into account the racers with the same recorded time. I'm 18th and 17th place has the same time, so I think technically they should be 18th too. I hope you understand what I'm getting at.

like if 16, 17, 18 all have the same time they all should be in 16th place? Thats what I think because it makes me sound much better when i say I was 18th fastest in the crit Vs. I got 26th in the crit.

Usually, in swim, that's what they do with the places. It's always been that they would record two people in second and no one in third, say, for a tie for second place. I think that makes the most sense. I've seen a three-way tie for first, which was really cool. The results went 1, 1, 1, 4, 5, 6... Only in a really short race is that even possible, though

I was amongst those whe spent a lot of time going through the photo finishes, and there were a few instances where people crossed the line during the same second, but not at precisely the same time. Although if they were in different heats it was a bit harder to judge.

Are these the official times and rankins?

Or are the ones in Uni magazine official?

There seem to be some discrepancies between the two

STM - hoping Uni is right
