Things I learned officiating this weekend:

+ Electric jackets take up the same amount of space as fleece jackets – and are warmer.
+ It's cold in Tennessee in May.
+ Scoring a time trial and having accurate, on-time results is tedious, but with a good system – its efficient.
+ The average bike racer has NO idea what goes into scoring any event.
+ Masters 35+ criteriums can be officiated on cruise control … speed – FAST
+ Junior parents don't know the rules
+ Garmin bicycle computers apparently make you faster than stop watches (multiple stop watches)
+ Tennessee bike racers are generally very well behaved

Great weekend, great mentoring – I actually learned a ton about officiating!

  1. Yeah, I did timing for our provincial CX series last fall. There's a lot to it, but when things are working, and the organizer provides you with an accurate start list, it can be pretty smooth.
