The Debacle of the Results/ Gorgeous Pics From New Bike Route

These are several of the comments on the facebook page about the triathlon last weekend.  There are still no official results and I am beginning to question that there ever will be.  It is too bad as it was such a fun race and this leaves a sour taste.  I hope they change timing companies next year - they HAVE to.  

Back40 listed me as the overall female winner...any truth to this? I know my times are accurate... Just not sure about anyone else's!

 i emailed them yesterday that I am not included at all, I definitely finished. I still have not heard back from them.

the results are still not correct....

My name isn't listed either and I was awarded the top female. Why would they post results if they are so inaccurate? Makes me wonder if the times listed are even correct. My friend timed himself at 1:27 they listed him at 1:24. Great job to everyone who raced!!

In the Half, the women's age group 50-54 is completely missing from age group results. Also, I am not listed at all in the overall results. Please advise!

 noticed that times/placements posted so far on 40 timing company are different than what was presented at ceremony.

eah I finished and am listed as DNF... Oh well.. Wish I had a finisher medal so I could prove it...

I wasn't listed either and definitely finished, nor was my friend who also received an award. Maybe they are still working on it??

 was NOT even listed, never mind listed as DNF. And yet was given an age award at the finish.

 I hope they choose a different timer for next year.  
I feel pretty lucky I am listed and have the right times minus the transitions.  I am in the wrong age group but I am not missing or called DNF!  

These are some pictures from my Monday bike ride. I took a route I had never taken.  It was delightful and beautiful.  I have ridden twice this week and both times were completely new routes.  Love it!

The results were a total debacle weren't they. I hope for the race's sake that they change timers too or they won't be getting too many repeat customers.

The race results thing...frustrating! The second year I did the Tour de Donut, I KNEW I'd placed donut-adjusted when they read off the times for 3rd place...and got nothing. Oh the despair -- 11 donuts for NOTHING! -- only to eventually be replaced by elation when the correct results were posted online. But I never did get my medal that year. :-/

Your bike rides are serious Vermont tourism material.

The race results were a bummer. I guess things just happen sometimes and are certainly out of your control, but at least you have your time and in your summation...you did GREAT! Man, your bike ride was gorgeous. Wish I had views like that around here.

Yikes! It sounds like they definitely need to find a new timing company.
You pictures are beautiful, as always.

It's bad if organizers can't get things like results right. Let's hope they improve for next year. Beautiful pictures!

Those are some breathtaking views for sure! What a mess on the results! I'd be ticked. My son in law ran his first 5K about 2 years ago now and they messed up his time and his results never got published. It just sucks when you don't have the record and don't "get credit". YOu know you did it, but you like to see the results!

Beautiful biking pictures!

Bummer about the race times. If you are paying for a race, that's just unacceptable.

Nice pics!

What a gorgeous ride! The timing mess sucks - it's a big part of why people pay to race! But congrats on the win? :)
