I checked the USAT rankings website and things can only go up from here. I was ranked 1,132 overall, 897th at Olympic distance and 775th at short distance. Not bad until you realize that these rankings were in my age group. I guess I never expected to make top-5% and All American honors but geeze. America must be a big country, at least I'll never have to make the national team!
There was some good news, I was in the top-50% pretty much in all the rankings except Olympic/Intermediate distance, where I was 897 out of 1501. This years focus on sprint will help my short distance placing, but won't help overall. Given Aquabike or Clydesdale are not even a recognized categories, thats blown my chances for 2008.
If you did a minimum of three races, you should sow up in the USAT rankings. You can look up yourself, your age group or pretty much anything else at http://www.usatrankings.com
Just don't ask me to explain them. Here are my races, the most you can really tell from these is that
at my best race, I was only 64% of the winners time.
[Update: Much better news, overall in all age groups in USAT national rankings I was 381st Mark, but the best news is I was #1 Cathcart in the national rankings, a clear 5-points ahead of Ian, who despite having the same name as my cousin, isn't related!]
