Holding it on a weekend rather than a working/school day would have been helpful.

If my maths is correct? Needing to be 40% longer, is the same as saying it was 28.6% shorter, and if the M21E was 89% of the its correct length, and the M55 was 86% of what is should have been based on that, then that is the same as 23.5% shorter (89% of 86%), so the unexplained part is much less.graeme wrote:MacMan wrote:48 mins winning time for M50 and 46 for M55 ...

Why did M55 need to be 40% longer? Three factors all push it in
1/ Guidelines, M55/M21E ratio is 0.53. So M55 should be 8.5km: planners chose to make it 7.3. Assuming they started by planning M21E for 95min. EWT, it means the M55 was planned for a 53-58 min winning time. That's about 16% short
2/ The elite course turned out to be ~11% short (84mins vs 90-100EWT)
Which still leaves a hefty 13% to account for.
48 mins winning time for M50 and 46 for M55 ... Why ? Not a BOC !

My only gripe was the M21L course was not combined with another class, it was basically the same length as courses 3 and 4 but only 6 people entered which means no ranking points.
