It does seem a bit weird - so they get Junior points, but because they're runnning the same course as the seniors they also get Senior points?
Yes, meaning it'll probably be Day 1 of Easter (rather than the Prologue) before I can even think about my first points although history isn't on my side with that given it's a middle distance event with 46 entrants. Maybe the ultra-long? I did get points at last year's NSW sprint champs but was a smaller junior field and I did beat most of them.
Yes, the core problem does seem to be your inability to out-run a bunch of children. :)
Hey, it's the 17-20 category so many of them are adults! Gen Y/Millenials just want it all though. Unfortunately many of them will beat me in the senior NOL comp despite only getting senior sprint points.
