As an interesting metric of how well you did in any race I have calculated each athlete’s percentage back of the average time of the 2nd,3rd and 4th racer.
The numbers along the bottom represent the races in order.
1 – Foothill Classic, 2 – Sugar Bowl Freestyle, 3 – Truckee Sprints, 4 – Mammoth Classic,
5 – North Tahoe Skiathlon, 6 – State Championship Classic, 7 – State Championship Skate
If you were 100% back it means your time was twice as long as the 2,3,4 average.
Here is a table showing the percent-back-summary If the trend was negative it means that you were improving through the season (we won’t dwell on what a positive trend means!). A small standard deviation means that you had more consistent results. Don’t read too much into it but these are interesting numbers.
