All Series Results & Overall Points are available in our live database. Previous years' results are stored in the same place for 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010, on the WSBA website for 2009 and 2008. Prior to that (2006 to 2007), we were called the Cyclocrazed Series and I have the results on an old hard drive somewhere!
The overall formula for 2014 continues as for the past 4 years with an adjustment for expanding field sizes. With 6 events now in the series, you have plenty of opportunities to enter the fray. You must attend & finish TWO races at a minimum to be scored in the overall. Your worst result (which may be a no-show, so zero points) will be dropped.
Points will be awarded 25 deep per race according to the following scheme:
65, 50, 40, 35, 30, 26, 23, 20, 18, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
Chip timing is provided by Red Tent Timing. Your chip will be embedded on the back of your shoulder number which you will wear on your left side. The larger bib number goes on your back left hip on your jersey. Check for readability - pose bending over like on a bike and ask a friend if your number is readable. If not, you may not get a result. You may keep your numbers from race to race, but we may reissue the chips after your 3rd race as they are not incredibly durable.
PLEASE: DO NOT RIDE THROUGH THE FINISH LINE WHEN WARMING UP. DO NOT GO NEAR THE TIMING ARCH WHEN WEARING A CHIP.
Upgrades: you are encouraged and in some instances even required to upgrade to a higher category. You are also allowed (although discouraged) to downgrade if you feel a category is too fast for you. Points can be transferred BY REQUEST ONLY and will be sliced in half for the next category up, transferred straight over for a category down.
The prizes are awarded at the Series Finale Party, which for the 2014 season will be two weeks after the final race of the series at the Squalicum Yacht Club clubhouse.
Our results are also occasionally sucked into the huge vortex of results at CrossResults.com. This killer app allows you to rate our events with Skulls and Beers, compare your results among multiple promoters and regions, and track down your nearest rivals! After some nagging of a very dedicated East-coast-based programmer, the Washington scene is finally showing up in the Pacific Northwest region. Do take advantage.
