@RichardFinnjr I'm not perfect. Stated (I'm long winded so you may have missed it), but I've been in your spot and almost missed a race run at a National and watched guys travel cross country and miss their start and get NO run.

Let's get real honest. How long before your run did you PHYSICALLY ARRIVE within 50 yards of the Start house? When did you check in with the spotter who stands outside the start house lining riders up in order? The spotter at a National usually has the riders IN RACE ORDER 10-20 riders deep.
If it's 10 riders, 30 second intervals, you still had 5 minutes if you're where you're supposed to be. Be honest.

(d) Each rider shall report to the starter at least THREE minutes before their scheduled starting time and shall start at the scheduled time. A rider starting early shall receive a time penalty, as determined by the Chief Referee. If a rider appears later than the appointed starting time, the start will be allowed only if it does not interfere with the riders starting on schedule. If it does interfere, the rider may be further delayed. In case of a late start, the appointed start time shall be used in computing the results unless the rider has been granted a new start time as provided elsewhere in these race regulations or in the technical guide for the event. The rider’s bicycle must be stationary at the moment of the start."

So we can hug it out? I don't do fights any more. Kids, job, ceramic tooth...stuff like that. Be happy to ride with anybody fast that likes to talk shit while we pedal.

My bad. Was thinking I saw you post it up on RM. But I'm usually 100% wrong about everything.

Check your rule book. 2016 Rulebook:

"(d) Each rider shall report to the starter at least three minutes before their scheduled starting time and shall start at the scheduled time. A rider starting early shall receive a time penalty, as determined by the Chief Referee. If a rider appears later than the appointed starting time, the start will be allowed only if it does not interfere with the riders starting on schedule.

In case of a late start, the appointed start time shall be used in computing the results unless the rider has been granted a new start time as provided elsewhere in these race regulations or in the technical guide for the event. The rider’s bicycle must be stationary at the moment of the start."

Glad you posted those physical threats online. I screenshoted them. Can't be too careful. I got kids and don't do the whole fight thing any more. I'ms sure you and I would have had a lot of fun taking it out on each other when I was teen. But men can handle strong words. You'll live. Real men can accept when they've made mistakes and admit to them too. Not just give excuses. Didn't say you can't ride a bike fast, which is what really matters. Suck it up.

He was probably late because the line to the porta-potty he was in was longer than expected. You know, since you can't just piss in the woods without getting fined.

I didn't say it stresses me, I said it causes stress.

So you worked running the computer on timing?

My point is if a rider has an issue you should bring it up with the organiser first. An online form first is not very good. I also stated some of these issues...more

Sorry guys I have to chip in here. I'm a race organiser in Australia and a race. I know how hard it can be to organise riders. That is not abusive in my opinion, I have seen and given out worse. You don't have any idea what stress breaking the beam like that can...more

It does strike me that there is a relationship between them. I can't imagine he's talking to a complete stranger? Nonetheless. It was a great run and very disappointing he was DQ'd for something that was in some ways beyond his control. He was as the start on...more

The way you get around that line ma'am is to get to the top way ahead of your start time. Flat out. You're still making excuses.

I have been the idiot I call your son and rolled up to a start gate by the hair of my head barely able to get in the gate.

I've watched plenty of guys miss their start time.
I've sat on crowded lifts, slow lifts, freezing lifts, stopped lifts, rickety shuttle trucks, you name it.

I realized I love to race so much that I WILL ALWAYS SHOW UP EARLY because that's what grown ups do. It's what everyone does...except your son.

Your son didn't show up early, he didn't show up on time. No, rather than just accept his punishment for his mistake, he posted his run that didn't count and even labeled it "winning run." Just stop it and mail him some cookies.

You are Captain Excuse. You want me to go get your participation trophy so you can put it next to your Intramural team t-shirt?

Yeah, I'm talking shit to his mommy because he is 30 years old and the only mommy's boy who didn't show up on time whose mommy is on a forum defending a mistake.

Rules are what wins AND loses races. Should you be allowed to cut the course a Itty bit or none at all?

People are raging on USA Cycling for fining people, and that's fine by me to be upset about.

But this thread is a poorly misplaced bashing of a legitimate rule.put in place to keep idiots from triggering the timer, wandering into the gate whenever they feel like it...and more than anything, shutting down excuse after excuse after excuse for not showing when and where you should.

Hypocrites demanding officials maintain professionalism, but still be your buddy and your brother when you're the one who should take the full blame for not being in line.

I think the entire UK wouldn't be stupid enough to show up to the start gate late and then try to charge through the front of the gate, basically cutting in line, possibly ruining someone else's run by maybe distracting the timers from their job and just flay out not doing the most basic rules of racing. Come in the back.

Imagine you're the other 250 responsible adults who did the right thing, got there early, confirmed your time, replies to the spotter, paid the same money and were all able to get it right without their mommy hand holding them or you guys giving him a free pass. Racing is awesome, it doesn't have to be serious but it's seriously SOOOOO EASY to show up like the rest of the world. Wanna give him a freebie, let it be on your couch.
