What were your thoughts on how the race went down? COVID registration and contingency, shortened course due to wild fire, highway closures, helicopter crashes ... etc.

General Discussion / Vapor Locking and Silver State 300
« on: June 14, 2020, 06:29:48 PM »
Be aware of the possibility of vapor locking going into this race. Take a look through this thread as to how John Ferrari #6013 was able to solve his issue.

If you have solved your vapor locking issue when racing in the heat and elevation how did you do it?

Funny, the first 2 to register places 1st and 2nd.  Coincidence?

--John

So do you think there is a correlation between how early someone registers and their finishing position? I sort of see this in the running/triathon events my wife and I do. If I register a year early for an event, I feel like I have been preparing for that race and aside from any injuries I typically have a good race. Now if I'm a last minute sign up my prep is much less than it would be otherwise.

But then there is luck and karma involved as well but what is the metric for that?

Congratulations to Travis Williams on the 2019 Championship! Chris Wardle snags 2nd place in the points and Greg Bragg picks up 3rd. Thanks to everyone who comes out and makes this series as fun as it is. 2020 is looking very promising, Jason and TrophyLite crew are working hard to make it very exciting.

6077 Williams  - 584 - 1st,   2nd,   3rd,   1st,   1st,   2nd

Hey Gene the problem I have is adrenaline! Set a good solid pace but don't do anything stupid. Like the "King", Todd Jackson used to say, "let the race come to you".

Larry, so you get all pumped up! That's awesome. I was looking at some numbers yesterday and it was extremely rare that anyone starting in the top 3 would finish on the podium at V2R.

From an adrenaline stand point, maybe it's better to start mid pack or toward the back in order to feel like you can chase vs. be chased.

Dang. Ok so one of you chimed in but this thread has more than 70 views. So ultimately in TL, at V2R, it doesn't really matter where you draw because of the distance?

So then what other factors in the first 20 miles could affect your race if starting position isn't really a factor.
