[RC] EXPERIENCE - bechack

The first time I went to Death Valley Encounter, I was in awe of the
riders I had only read about.  There were riders there from all over
the US (and some international riders have come too!)

I got to thinking about the miles represented at this one ride.  I
thought to myself (self: there must be a 1/4 million miles
represented here)

Well, I was wrong.  Had a slow moment at work so did a little
research.  These statistics are for Day one only of the December 2002

Lifetime Miles of 94 Starters 500,132 miles

Average Miles = 5437

They broke down as follows

0-500 = 15 riders

501-1500 = 20 riders

1501-3000 = 16 riders

3001-6000 = 18 riders

6001-10,000 = 11 riders

10,001- 15,000 = 8 riders

over 15,000 = 6 riders

What was also interesting was out of the 9 riders that did not
finish, 2 had 0 miles and 2 had over 25,000

The group (in groups of 10's per finish ie....top ten, top 20 etc)

with the most miles was 21-30 th place.  

I have know idea what it all means, I was just facinated by it all
and thought we needed something new to talk about.

Happy Trails to all.....
Becky and the gang
