8-23-01 UPDATE

I just spoke to Nicole (Girlrider). She, her helmet and her luggage have now joined her in France. Actually, her helmet did not arrive at her home before they left for the airport so she met the air freight at another town (Silverthorne, CO) on the way to the airport and retrieved it. Her luggage did not leave Paris on their flight but after a five hour wait, it did arrive and away they went in their somewhat small rental car to their somewhat small accomodations (typical for Europe). The container with motorcycles and equipment has not yet arrived but they hope it will tomorrow (Friday) because the motorcycles are impounded on Saturday and they will not longer be able to fine tune them. The saga will continue with my next update.

I just found Nicole's name and Amanda's name on the ISDE listing, but I sure wish I could understand what it all means! :(

When looking at the results, you want to look at the columns: Pénalité, Temps, Ecart.

Pénalité = The amount of penalty points accumulated by being late (or early) to a check. 1 point for every minute late (or early). This will be added to the total points accumulated in each terrain test and grass track. It looks like Nicole accumulated 27 penalty points.

Temps = The total amount of time it took to get through all of the special tests.

Ecart = The total amount of time behind the leader in the class. You will notice the leader of the class will have a score of 0:00

It looks like Amanda *may* have houred out since her penalty points are more than 1 hour. She may ride Day 2 on protest, but we'll see after day 3.

I hope this helps.

8/27 UPDATE

I just spoke to Nicole. (1:10 MDT) She says the course is a lot of roads and even the trails are wide. There are a lot of steep downhills, slippery grass and roots and some other unique characteristics like riding up some steps at the beginning of the race. The course also goes through town which means dealing with local traffic. It cannot be compared to what we typically ride here in the West (USA). The course is two loops, a total of 197 miles. She took some spills but was not hurt. She was about 15 minutes late and then her bike had to be readied for tomorrow before impound. The course will be the same tomorrow.
AMANDA did well. She is some behind Nicole.
SUZIE had a serious accident and is in the hospital with internal bleeding. No one saw the accident so she is the only one who knew what happened. Her husband is with her. Please say a prayer for her quick recovery.

Congrats to Nicole and Amanda. I can't wait for more updates.

My prayers are with Suzy. I've spoken to her a few times through e-mail, and been at a few of the same races but have never met her. I know she is an awesome rider. I hate to hear about her being hurt and hope she recovers quickly.

Thanks for the update, Bert! Even second hand, it's more informative than getting it through the websites.

I am extrememely sorry to hear about Suzy's accident. :(
PLEASE keep us posted on her condition. I am keeping her in my thoughts!
If there's anything we can do...

brraaap: Thanks so much for that helpful information. At least now I have somewhat of clue about what I'm reading.

Bert: Thanks for the updates and keeping us posted. I'm sorry to hear about anyone getting hurt. It is somewhat a relief that she has her husband by her side right now.

Ohhh yeah....
Also on the results, the scores below the riders name:
i.e. 6:49.57 (473) : 6:25.00 (473) : 7:20.80 (491) : 7:15.74 (491)
These are times for each special test, the number in the parenthesis is the position out of all of the riders.
Test 1 = 6:49.57 (Place = 473)
Test 2 = 6:25.00 (Place = 473)
etc.
