Wednesday July 27. 2022
The race today finished at checkpoint 10 for the Iron class Competitors.
Start - The offroad start time. This is the ''given time'' to competitors, it is their responsibility to present themselves at the Red Bull Arch starting line.
CP - displays competitor arrival time at each CheckPoint.
Timebar time - Competitors much reach each checkpoint before the displayed time. If the timebar time is RED Example
12:05:58 then the competitor has arrived too late, they are now status AB = Abandoned and must leave the racetrack and follow the 'GPS Abandon track' and timebarred signs and go directly to the Offroad finish or Competitor paddock.
Ride time - track riding time between checkpoints.
Difference - The difference in ride time between competitors. +0s (= zero seconds) is the fastest competitor between checkpoints. Example = If the time shown against another competitor is +2m30s this means that competitor was +2 minutes 30 seconds slower than the fastest competitor.
If checkpoint(s) are missing = the race class does not enter that checkpoint (Example=CP4)
CP SPin - arrival time at the CheckPoint Service Point in
SPout - departure time from the Service Point out - Competitors cannot leave the Service Point out BEFORE their given time.
The CP SPin time is taken, then their SPout (departure time) is written on a sticker and applied to their motorcycle helmet.
Competitors can stay longer if they wish to rest or repair motorcycles, but this time is adding to their overall race time.
If there is a ''between checkpoints'' Liaison
CP LPin - arrival time at the Liaison Point in CheckPoint
