bah! here is what its supposed to say
Great day yesterday...was stupid and blew my chance at a win, had my car break down on the thruway as I drove home and had to get it towed, and the uscf officials didn't record my finish.
So, I did the Capital Region RR yesterday, and finished decently high up after blowing my chance to win it. I guesstimated after we crossed the line that I placed around 15th in a field of 72. The problem is, the camera the officials were using at the finish line died before we crossed it, so I guess they had to try and do the results by hand. I left before results were posted, so I missed the protest period.
Today I checked out the results, and they say that I DNF'd 13th place was left blank (no name, no bib number), as I suppose they couldn't figure out who came in 13th. Well, I'm pretty sure 13th place is me, and I've written USA cycling an e-mail explaining the situation and asking if there's any way to prove where I placed and get me credit for the finish.
So, I have two questions for you guys. 1. Has anyone had luck with getting the USCF to change results after the protest period is over? And 2. I know 13th isn't a top 10 finish and I won't get any upgrade points for it, but would it help my upgrade resume to have the 13th place finish recorded since the field was pretty large?
