S1200 Final Results Posted

The Shenandoah 1200 provisional final results — subject to ACP ratification — have been posted. I’ve also copied them below. Of the original field of 56, 30 finished. In a telling statistic about the difficulty the riders faced, just seven broke the 80-hour mark and only one broke the 70-hour mark.

First off, congratulations to all the finishers and consolations to all those who gave it their all in the hot, humid conditions. MG and I have ridden some of the S1200 roads in similar heat, notably a 600K in 2005, where we stopped every hour to cool down. The Shenandoah Valley can be an oven. The volunteers deserve credit for all they did to assist everyone.

Rider stories will tell more about the 46 percent DNF rate. Was it the heat and the relentless Shenandoah rolling hills and hard climbs? Was the event held too early in the year for adequate preparation and pre-ride rest? With the August running of PBP and BMB, there was plenty of time to ride a full series or more, recover, and peak again for the big ride. And, those regions don’t get nearly as hot.

As we now know, early June can be very hot in Virginia, though this was an unusual spell; brevets around this time frame have also been wet and cool. We rode through hours of rain just last weekend at the D.C. Randonneurs 200K.

Here are the results. Again, well done to all.
