I did a quick search, didn't see anything specific on the subject. If this has been hashed out before please direct me to that thread.
I just competed in a race this past weekend. I was first out of the start, didn't see another Clydesdale 'till the finish. Then the results get posted and a guy I beat by 18 minutes at the last race supposedly beat me by 3 minutes at this race.
I inquire as to the results and am informed that they handicapped the results 30 seconds per pound over 200 pounds. Has anyone else been to a race where they do this? After the race, they asked me how much I weighed, I told them my nekkid weight, 205. Should have told them my riding gear weight 212. 12 pounds is 6 minutes. The thing I don't get is they didn't handicap my time, but they did his? He's at least 30 pounds heavier than me...15 minute head start...
I don't really care, it would have been nice to know ahead of time though.
So, any other races where they do this?
