Signal Peak Challenge 2009 - Notes/Results
First, a big shout out to Dan Dietzel and Nathan Shay for their first foray into heading up the Signal Peak Challenge. A big job for sure.
Great job! The theme, the Saturday meal, refreshments and hang out, and the E.P.I.C. mountain bike adventure. All carrying on the tradition in true mountain biker style.
Many, many thanks to the entire race crew!
Here are images of the final race results. Link. We will get them spreadsheeted and integrated in the next day or so.
Thanks to all who raced and suffered (and had some fun along the way).

fwiw, the sheet shows an interlineation in 6th place for #275, Faron G. Adcock time 2.36.23
is that you? if so, does that sound correct?
no i wasnt on the prelims...that time sounds right. Thanks
Are you sure those times are accurate? My GPS shows that I had a total elapsed time of 4:05 or so (7th place in the 40-49 Men Cat3 - actual race number is 333 as well not 338), but there are 15 minutes at the start where my speed was 0 mph while waiting to start. So, I could be wrong, but I expect that the start times after 9am were not subtracted from the overall times listed.
Please double check.
My understanding is that all times are from the race clock that started when the Pro/Cat1 men went and are not adjusted for the different start waves. (This is pretty SOP and avoids pesky race day math).
When did you start your gps?

I have finally adjusted times for the staggered start. I am attempting to post them at the tour of the gila site. If you can wait a couple of days they will be up there. If not, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send them to you. Thanks for your patience.
BTW, the results were late because the beginners did one more lap than last year and it screwed the timers up big time-it also screwed up the beginners, I'm sure. So that is why results weren't posted as fast as they should have been.
It was my first time organizing the race and nobody remembered how many laps they had done last year and the old fliers said 4, that's how that happened. Live and learn. Not quite as epic as the year the expert race was forty miles by accident. I did that and it hurt bad.
Thanks for participating. Funny thing, the course is on fire again, it went out just for race weekend.
Results - In spreadsheet form and showing adjustments for delayed start times.
I suspect some name misspellings based on transcripting from the handwriting. If so, just let me know.
