Unfortunately, there's little to no support here for inclussion or compiling of clydesdale results in the many well attended "events" that take place. They can't even come up with a consistent set of age ranges that would allow you to compare yourself to the same set of individuals from event to event. Each organizer just seems to do what they feel is best. Which is sort of disappointing, because there is a pretty good series of events over the summer. Including the Taupo challenge that gets (they claim) over 10,000 participants.
I just finish with my employer on Friday. I hope that whatever I find next will allow me enough personal time that I can commit some time to trying to organize some clyde/athena riding here. If that happens, I'd be happy to host in a couple years time. In the meantime, it seems like it would be easier to host the first one in the States, where there's already some events that include clyde ratings.
With regard to getting from A to B: Hey, at least we're not cycling in straight boring lines, ala southern Illinois. Imagine hosting an event in Carbondale. Ride North for 5 miles, at 5th intersection turn left, ride West for 5 miles, at 5th intersection turn left, ride South for 5 miles,.......you get the idea. Don't get lost in the corn:-)
Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
