Major differences between the first results posted on Cross Crazy and the revised one on the London League website. I have dropped down 7 places, but a female Kingston Wheelers rider I raced practically the whole race with until she sprinted away from me in the last 300m ended up 12 places and a lap up on me!
You can email the organiser if you can show that they've miscounted your laps or something (link on london cyclo-x website). They put me down one lap short, but like the sad git I am I emailed the organiser with a link to my strava data showing I did one extra lap, and he was happy to update results. Still not in top 100 though
Never mind, it was my first ever cross race and surely the only way is up!
Thanks for your reply, I'm glad I am not the only one who has had issues. From the long que to sign on(which I have never experienced before) to the issuing of hand written numbers I began to have doubts about the level of organisation at this race. I know it takes a hell of a lot of time and prep to organise a race, but we are paying £12(or £15 without a license) to enter these races, and should expect a certain level of organisation, i.e, getting the results right!
Tbh, i cannot prove my laps and placing are wrong, but i do know who I raced with from the first lap, and my placing is defo wrong, but then we are talking toward the back end of the race rather than the front so maybe I should stop being so precious!
By the way, if it was your first race you picked a fast, dry one! They are not all as rapid, dry and untechnical as Sunday, and the muddier, technical races tend to be a tad slower, but not by much. I only started last season, and I am never going to a contender, but I have got the bug so stick with it and you will improve!
