Thanks Kim!
What a brilliant weekend!!
Many thanks to all our organisers and helpers, and to everyone who took part in the races. Great atmosphere on the camp site and the track - That's the most fully faired machines I've seen in one place other than the World Championships. The social distancing seemed to go well and didn't get in the way of us having fun at all - I think we all did a good job of keeping at least 2 meters apart on the track - Easy for me of course as I couldn't keep up with most of you!! 😃

Kim -
Reluctant though I am to admit it, I think I've been credited with laps I didn't do during my 'aargh cramp' stop at around 1:30:00. I stopped near the antennas for around 5 mins so probably got dozens of reads which were converted to a few minimum-length laps. I should have one normal-length lap, then one 5 mins or so longer than normal (during which I was passed once by John Lucian), then back to regular lap times.

I'll take a detailed look at the lap times later today when work permits.

I wondered about that.  Your lap times are 3:30-3:40ish, until lap 23 (which is around the time Heather noted you'd stopped at 1:25:00), where it's recorded 3 laps of over 4 minutes (which is interesting, because the minimum lap time's set to 2:30), before resuming 3:30-3:40 laps until the end of the race.

Suspect that you stopped with you helmet close enough to the aerial that impinj decided to ignore it as a stray tag while you were stopped, and there's only the one false read to remove.  I reckon your lap 23 should be 8:40ish, with a slightly slow lap 24 at 4:13 as you got back up to speed.

ETA: I've just gone through the whole list of stoppages again, and the others appear to have plausible times.

Yes, that all sounds plausible for me - thanks for sorting it. I was very slow getting started again so 4:13 is perfectly reasonable. Annoyingly it's the first time for years I didn't have a Garmin to refer back to.

Okay, I've propagated that change.  You've gone from 9th to 12th in Open.

...and we've now got shiny CrossMgr-generated index pages for the timings.  Turns out that was a bug in CrossMgr that was fixed 12 days ago.

Editor of LaidBack Cyclist here. It would be great if somebody could do a write up of goings on at Darley Moor in the next 2 weeks. Any photos you have also gratefully received.

Ah, that reminds me, would you be interested in a write-up of the recent changes to the timing/scoring software?  (From a "This is why the results look a bit different" perspective, I'll spare you the tedious details of the VBA hacking that made it possible.)

Might be worth covering the online sign-on process while I'm at it...
