Any one know when they will get them up or if they are?
Are these the final results? We have a guy on our team Juan who raced Expert 19-29 and kicked some ass this year. Out of the 9 races in series he won 6 had a 2nd a 4th and missed one race. According to the results with pay dirt he will finish Third. :hmmm: This is my first year racing so maybe I am missing something but isn't the idea of a racing to win.
I do respect the Idea of Paydirt and try to help when I can. I just have a hard time understanding how picking up a rake can put you at the top of the podium.
Sometimes being a good person and doing the right thing is the only reward you need. Let the racing decide who wins.
The rules were this way before the races started. That's like losing a football game 30-28 and complaining that you scored more TDs than the other team so you should get the W. Besides, it's not like they take away the 6 wins in the series (which by the rules would mean he should move up to semi-pro, I believe).
To be sure, after looking at the series results it's a bit misleading. I did 5 races, 2 of which were 30th place or higher. I had a few good runs in there but overall I wasn't anything special. But if I had done 3 more races and just finished (DFL) and gotten my Paydirt, I would have come in 5th in the series. That's a bit silly considering my highest finish was 6th. But then then guy who came in 5th never placed higher than 8th. With just the 5 races and no Paydirt, I was 20th. The 10th place guy never did better than 17th. Might seem silly but those are the rules.
I think it's cheesy that only Bulldog/Campmor riders have their team on the results page.
I understand that these were the rules before the season started and that everyone had a chance to do paydirt. Keeping with the Football analogy. What if the NFL gave the Colts an extra 10 points tomorrow because they cleaned up the stadium after the game? How would that go over? Would the best team have won on the field?
Please don't miss understand me on this. I fully understand these were the rules. Maybe next year they should give more credit for winning races.
