How does your local association post race results?

Here in Texas it's up to the promoter - if it's a Texas Cup race, the top 20 will eventually show up on TXBRA.org. If not TXCup, there may or may not be a forum post with results. Most of the weeknighters have their own websites where they post.

Inevitably there are people asking "where are the results" and the snarky answers "posted at the finish line"... followed by pointless complaining about "my placing was wrong" / "you should have protested at the race" ... etc...

Just wondering how other locals do it.

OBRA has a central website where all the official results are posted (everyone usually gets placed). Before the results are published, they are usually sent out by email (listserve) the same day as the race or, at most, a day or two later to provide an opportunity to correct the results. Usually the top 10 or so are posted at the race venue to allow for challenges.

The OCA website usually has them up pretty soon after the finish of a race. Often the results for one category will be up even when other races are still going on. There is also a twitter feed that sends a link to a results page that will refresh as more results are added. It's a decent system IMO.

Weekly training races are not included, those results are up to the club to post.

WSBA is similar to OBRA, our results are posted on wsbaracing.com generally within a week's time (sometimes more, sometimes months)

Full results are posted at the race of course, though some races only record the top 20 or so.

The weeknight training races post to their own websites.

As for getting WSBA results to USAC... that doesn't seem to happen in 95% of cases. Oh well.

Creaky, are these USAC races not being posted? Wtf??

The SCNCA in SoCal usually will have the results on their website the following day. Races always have results posted onsite after the race. They try to record as many as possible.

The other organization here, CBR, is notoriously late in posting results online. Day of they only score the top 20-25.

NCNCA (norcal/nevada) usually posts results on their web site. Sometimes it's just a link to usacycling, sometimes it's a link to the promoter web site. This year it's usually been within a day or less. But sometimes in the past its taken a month or more for smaller races.
Pretty much all races place all finishers.

Of course they are posted at the race, usual 15 minute protest period, payouts given etc.

If it's not TXCup, then whether it's ever posted anywhere on the internet is up to the promoter.

Then I guess we're spoiled, since all official USAC results are eventually posted on the same site. You can click into the results and see people's past results which is always fun.

Of course it's up to us to keep track of results, but it's nice to have them somewhere semi-official. I just wish ours would get reported to usac.. then again I guess that doesn't really matter either.

I should clarify that almost all of the weekend races are TXCup in one category or another so it's not like the majority of races don't get posted. The majority do, eventually, and most of them within a few days.
