Unofficial SIR results at PBP 2007

(Updated April 28th, 2008)
HIGHLY UNOFFICIAL RESULTS FOR PBP 2007

These results were obtained by searching the PBP tracker page for each rider listed on the SIR list. If I have wrongly classified somebody, or you have more information about a rider, let me know, and I shall update this page. The official results, unfortunately, have to come from ACP. There are two extra names: Carole Bernhardt and Ron Himschoot, who both rode with SIR, but did not list SIR as their parent/home club.

40 Finishers, 2 finishers out of time limits (DNQ), 17 DNFs/Unknown, and 2 DNS. 2 out of 3 known vegetarians finished! ;)(Krichman and Wright). SIR DNQ/DNF rate: 32%. As if the distance and the terrain were not challenging enough, the atrocious weather took the fun out of a lot of people, if one were to believe the reports that I have read. The Internet was rife with rumours of riders being allowed to ignore the control closing times as long as they met the 90 hour cutoff, and of 2 to 3 hour extensions to most people to allow them to deal with the conditions.

A PBP I was forced to watch from afar, I have learnt one thing: one has to be strong in the face of wind and rain (as I am most often, NOT), if one has to see these events to the end. Riding many days in the rain requires a level of mental toughness that I have to build up to.

N-

It was a hard ride, I think anyone there would agree. There were a couple times when I thought how bad it was, but was able at those times to fall back on the notion that, well it's just a crappy, rainy ride and we've all been through that at one time or another. I think the riding we do here in the PNW helped us be a bit better prepared for the ride. There were two times at controls when I was pulling out my sopping wet 'blue shirt' to put on and people around me were questioning my sanity. They could not undertstand how a dripping wet garment, put on over a steaming wet rider could be anything but a sentence of death. In one instance I tried to explain that no matter how wet, the wool 'blue shirt' was more a life jacket than a liability.

As bad as people make it sound, really it was a wonderful event. I had a ton of fun and got that good PBP feeling to motivate me toward a new goal for 2011.

I look forward to riding along with you then (or more likely trying to chase you down)!

A bientot

We are not among the DNF er's we consider that we abandoned the quest due to lack of sleep, electrolyte issues, and bad weather. It was terrifying riding through the Ramboullit forrest with all the other riders in the driving rain. I think some of the weather on this ride was more like a November storm then what we normally encounter on spring brevets. Kudo's to all who perservered and I'm so glad I participated in this huge event and hope to be back to complete the challenge in 2011.
