But despite a few hic-cups, everything went amazingly well. This was due to the excellent work of coordinator Doug Simpkinson and all the great volunteers. I really am grateful to all of them. And Clark Foy had his MetriGear Vector prototype there. I think that thing is cooler than cool, as my blog posts here have made obvious.
The biggest change we need to make is in timing. Two weeks in a row timing has caused issues: time go get beyond the "recording times on paper" dinosaur stage. I found this ap, which I downloaded onto my girlfriend's iPhone:
I love the name: Pencil Busters. Art Walker, former Stanford cycling coach, once said "no number should ever be written more than once". I agree, except even better is to never write a number at all. With this app, we can record times, annotate them with the iPhone (for example, invalid numbers, or even note rider numbers), then email them to my account. This will substantially facilitate results, as long as the iPhone battery holds out....
Anyway, we'll give it a try at Tunitas Creek this weekend.
