    TBF March Madness race, Granite Bay

    Trying to put a race team together for TBF March Madness race. Does anyone know how the teams are scored? Do the teams race the same amount of laps or do you race laps according to your category. I emailed the promoter days ago and have had no reply. Any other info on how the team race works would be helpful. Thanks

    Just saw this post. Did the race as part of a team...Dry Creek Trail Riders, but it seemed like a team would definitely benefit with having strength in numbers. It confused me also, so I wasn't paying much attention. You race?

    Yes we did the race. A team could win just by sheer numbers. The second place team did it that way by bringing about twice as many riders as the other teams. They only gave the scores of the 3 winning teams so we don't know where we placed. I would say there was probably 12 teams. We had 13 racers. 12 finished, two first place podiums and one second place so we scored 20 points. No big deal, we still had a great time.

    ....but we also started with 12. What happened to your 13th rider? By your description, our teams probably finished right next to each other in points. You are definitely right about that second place team though, they had A Lot of riders haha.

    13th rider flated, lost his chain and I think had some other issue.
    Which team did you race for? Did 3rd place get 27 points?

    My teammate and I were the only ones representing our team so we joined in with the Dry Creek Trail Rider team (which is local to me) and competed with them. My dumbass decided on doing the sport class so that I could try to push myself as long as possible....I thought I was dying. The fact that I felt like I was dying means that I don't remember how many points any team received lol.

    Yes, I was on the team. I was the short little 50+ guy named Mark. Here are a couple of videos I found from the race.

    I'm almost positive I know which mark you are...althought I wouldn't have guessed 50+. Your posts on the dctr page were one of the determining factors of skipping a mt. Diablo ride and joining up with you guys (which most of you I've rode with at DC anyway)

    I'm the slower Mark. Mark N. raced Sport, I raced Novice. I came over and met the two of you guys. Thanks for racing on the team. Next year we will try and get a larger team together. See you down at the creek or Sea Otter if you are going.
