Re: [RC] [RC] Tevis--Stagg Newman & Last Chance to Deadwood Leg - Ranelle Rubin

Yes it can and does happen that there are communication errors..the website showed me getting pulled at Last Chance (50 miles), then showing up at the River Crossing at 88 miles...I know I was singing Steve Miller's "Fly like an Eagle"...but that would be some flight down the canyon!

More likely a typo, probably. Remember, the webcast is, after all, an unofficial record of what happened. The real times get put in later at the office after the vet cards are tallied. The amount of mistakes that can happen from an in/out timer, telling a radio person, who then makes a list, and then radios it to net control for yet another person to make a list, who then gives it to my husband, who then reads it to me who types it .... well ... anything could happen! Although we all try to be as correct about it as we can.

So you'll just have to wait until the official results get posted. That might be a few months from now, by the time the office gets done with it.

Subject: [RC] Super's numbers??

Just crunching numbers waiting for update.

1st place, Keele  left Last Chance at 12:21 and arrived at Deadwood at
1:34  that's 73 min.

John Crandell left Last Chance at 12:27 and arrived at Deadwood at 1:35
that's 68 min.

Stagg left Last Chance at 12:45 and arrived at Deadwood in the lead at
1:05...20 minutes????  Is that right?

...Would that have to be a typo or is it possible to do that in 20 minutes?

Did we ever find out if Super's figures were a typo? I've got to believe that one
of the figures, either Newman's departure time or his arrival time, is a typo.
This says Newman went these 5 miles, the steepest up-and-down part of
the course, at a 15mph pace and passed 7 horses on a narrow single track
trail, when even the two leaders went at <5mph.


(See both the Tevis elevation map, Last Chance to Deadwood, with
swinging bridge in the middle:
 http://www.foothill.net/tevis/webcast07/elevation.htmp
and Lucy Chaplin Trumbull's pre-ride photos at
 http://www.quacky.co.uk/%7eelsie/RF-FH-Tevis-preride/).

If it is a typo, what were the real departure and arrival time numbers? Did Newman
actually arrive at Deadwood first, even if not *that* fast? (That Newman is listed as
arriving first means nothing if the time is a typo--it is just computer sorted by arrival
time, and if you get the wrong number, the system displays the wrong order.)


I'm interested because I'm curious whether Newman saw this slowest part of
the course as the best opportunity to make up time, and just overdid a tiny bit,
or whether he took it slow just like everybody else and all I'm looking at is
data GIGO.
