Do we have a couple of volunteers for race organising at York??

If any folks who haven't done it before fancy having a go I'll happily help guide you through what needs to be done.

Unlike previous years, the weather forecast for York is looking promising

race Organisers get to choose race format and also take credit for the fine racing conditions on the day. :)

Race Format for this Sunday at York:

Slow race 20 mins + 1 lap
Fast Race 20 mins + 1 lap

then

Slow Race 40 mins + 1 lap
Fast Race 40 mins + 1 lap

Then a Devil elimination race (no points) if we've got time to fit it in...(all competitors start together then the last over the line each lap gets eliminated)

Sounds like a plan. I need to know weightings of the two rounds to set up the race software - I'll guess at 33/67% then you can change on the day if you wish.

40/60 please (in order to encourage a more dare-devil approach to the first race...)

Thanks to, in no particular order, Russell, Chris and the ever organised Andrew and Heather. A great days racing. It was my first sighting of the newly bionisced Mr B and it's good to see him racing again.

12 Jochan Farwer 66 Highracer O/P/U/St/S 4 42:34.47 3.5

A couple of riders changed their bikes for the second race: in this case you score points only in those classes which are common to both bikes. E.g. Johnny Appleby Snr swapped from a TWBents trike (O/P/U/M/MF) to an upright road bike (O/P/U/St/Sp) so is in O/P/U classes for both races.

Now let's really hear those quibbles...

My thanks too to the efficient and capable organising team, Russ and Heather, and to my personal team of tent wranglers as well as to everyone else who helped to make the day run slickly and smoothly. However our thoughts tonight are with those whose bikes tragically failed to come home in one piece, most notably Jochen but also Ian Squires.

Hi Folks
thanks as always for another great days racing, and to the organizing team for fitting in a tight program of races, highs and memorable moments for me, sunshine at York there is a novelty, it was so nice I decided to take a short ramble on the grassy knoll at the side of the bottom hairpin, sounds more romantic than it actuly was, also Ian squires decking his streamliner at the start of the second race but regained himself and started again then eventualy changed bikes altogether, poor jochan who pulled up thinking he had a loose bolt in his tiller steering when on closer inspection found it had sheared and luckily had not gone altogether while he was still riding, great to see Mike back racing on his latest incarnation although he appeared to have some blood trickling from his ankle area so not totaly damage free, also respect to the younger racers who race every time in all weathers and who I'm sure will be ones to watch in future, thanks to Brian for slowing to help me back into the race very sporting of you and to Guss for timing me and who for some reason I kept calling Russ sorry about that mate, and the devil,confused ! you will be or maybe its just me, and lastly Ian perry who appeared later in the day who did not race but just came along to socialize after riding in his DF velomobile for 105 miles to get there what a nice man, he fancied a bike ride was his explanation and not to forget the 105 miles home again wow !, so here are some photo's of the day copy any you want, cheers, Jeff.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/recumbents/" rel="nofollow - http://www.flickr.com/photos/recumbents/

Great photos as ever. Thanks for not posting a photo of me rolling around at the start, you're more sensitive than those Belgians
Out of my 8 starts in the Bream, I'm up to 3 fails now. That's not good stats in anyone's book and I'm glad no money has changed hands for paint. Although plenty on resin and Kevlar tape.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day's racing, if not particularly my first time organising - although that was maybe due to having worked silly hours in the week and not being fully with it.  Many thanks to Heather for patiently explaining things over and over... :)

The 40min race was great fun - Chris and I caught Mike up with a few laps to go, who decided he wanted to play and stuffed-up our carefully calibrated last lap plans, forcing an almost-full lap sprint rather than 50m to the line...

Strava flyby for the 1st 20min race here - it works best with the speed set to 16x or thereabouts:  http://labs.strava.com/flyby/viewer/#660370987?c=gcx6bv5u&z=I&t=1Ndc_Y&a=K3ZcJ6JMWSfxdlonXbdVJyhfXCc&s=4J" rel="nofollow - http://labs.strava.com/flyby/viewer/#660370987?c=gcx6bv5u&z=I&t=1Ndc_Y&a=K3ZcJ6JMWSfxdlonXbdVJyhfXCc&s=4J

Great Photos Jeff, only problem for me now is that I told Jen i was going up to my parents to do a bit of gardening all day, now she's seen photographic evidence that I was in fact socialising and having a laugh with you lot - oh well never mind I'm sure the Ouch, will fade soon.

If its any consolation Mr Squires I have been bitten by the Cobra about four times now, note to self safety first and don't race people round hairpins or sneak up on deaf upright trike riders on the inside shouting on the left as at Hillingdon.

A three legged folding stool was left at York at the weekend. We have it. If it is yours we can bring it to any race except Hog Hill.

Many thanks to Chris and Russ for organisating and for being annoyingly fast as usual. 

I'm pretty sure I finished on the same lap as Joachen in the first race and don't recall being passed by Team Watson. Please correct me if I'm wrong. My memory is increasingly unreliable these days, as my wife will confirm.

Don't give me too much credit for race organising (I didn't do much more than scribble down a few times & numbers at the end of the first race). Credit due to Russ for proving its possible to be a race organiser whilst also scooping up 1000 points in both part-faired and unfaired as well as managing to squeeze a Devil into the mix and winning that as well.

I would accept your thanks for being annoyingly fast, but I blame that on the No-Com that was forcing me to try and keep up.......Smile

After an entire day battling a recalcitrant laptop automatically doing Windows 10 updates that I didn't ask it to, and preventing me doing any actual work, that comment made me feel much better, thanks Chris!

ps If you've got a laptop or PC that's running a stable version of Windows 7, don't even think about updating!  Grrr.....rant over

pps I'm not sure I did that much either - credit's really due to Heather...

Many thanks to the organisers, whoever you were :-) Russ, restoring Windows 7 is very straightforward but of course wastes another hour of your time. You don't seem to get any Windows 10 pop ups afterwards either. I found some stuff just didn't work with Windows 10. Grrr2

Thanks Geoff. Yes I've got Win 7 installs down to a fine art now - iso image on a memory stick, always onto SSD hard drives - super fast...

I don't trust Microsoft either with free issue of Win 10 - "here 1 billion users, have a free OS, we don't need the money"...there's a catch around the corner somewhere...

One bit of that stuff is the interface on the timing system laptop that connects to the tag reader, hence the no-show at Shrewsbury and my subsequent discovery that restoring back to Windows 7 is only possible for 30 days. After that the necessary restore files are swiftly and silently deleted Sick.

Machines upgraded from 7 (or 8.1) to 10 are generally not happy bunnies...
A clean install of Windows 10 is usually ok (although older stuff still won't always work with it.
 
I'm running Windows 7 here on the main PC and no plans to change any time soon!!

All four Babbage-Engines at Larrington Towers are on 10, three of them from 8.1. One decided that the "upgrade" was actually a fresh install but the other two worked fine and the aberrant one is behaving itself once we'd reached an understanding about which one of us was in charge.

The fourth actually was a fresh install on an ancient laptop running XP but that only gets used for watching films in bed so it didn't matter if it went a bit wonky
