Skipped A Lap, Did Ya?

KenElPescadoPeladoKenElPescadoPelado Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
Spotted in the results from a duathlon this weekend. This was from the sprint, 2 mi/10 mi bike/2 mi.

Does this look legit like somebody who didn't know how to pace, or skipped a lap? If I'm doing the math correctly, that's a very impressive pace on the bike. It was 5-mile bike laps.

    @EmilyCocks @Martin I might have casually excluded the detail that these were my Clydesdale brethren.

    For comparison, here are the leaders' times:



    And mine (in the Oly) for @IanL - my 3 a.m. b.m. didn't quite hold me through the race, thus the even more atrocious T1 time. ;)

    As @EmilyCocks probably a computer error between the bike and run #2. Transfer 15-16 min from run 2 to the bike and it's perfectly in line with expectations.

    That happened to me as a kid. I was 6 or 7, and riding on the back of another kids bike. We hit a bump and I fell on the rear wheel.

    Knobby BMX tires are not ribbed for pleasure, right?

    I’m going to set aside some time to award them retroactively, starting with @mbrekk44 and his mushroom stamping suggestion.
