are you going to WOC?

Don't know yet. They didn't have the three-day total scores available after the middle, but I think I was third or maybe fourth overall.

Text from Eric says 3rd overall, just behind 2nd, and he thinks you're in. YEAH!

Just looked at results (been in Cle Elum since Thursday), and if it's a selection of five men, the based on results, it's hard to argue against: Eric, Ross, Will, Michael, and Giacomo.

I do want to see a confirmation that you are going there. Need some more training courses?

Great racing this weekend! It was really fun to see you come in with a great result in the long!

I just did a quickie Ultimate-O style scoring system for this: winner gets 100, everyone else is scaled (winner's time / your time). It's not the fancy formula, but it pretty much confirms how I interpreted the results at first glance:

290.1 Eric
280.1 Ross
279.7 Will
273.9 Michael
268.0 Giacomo
256.4 Ken
256.0 Greg
248.9 Kevin
241.2 Brendan

That said, I don't know the inner workings of the team selection (how many are selected, how many races each get, are sprint results more important because 5 of the 10 WOC slots are sprint-related, etc).

As I see it, I would find it *very* unlikely that Will doesn't get a spot. In any case, the results were fantastic, the training and preparation that led up to them were hard-earned, and most importantly, you're at peace with them.

I am still holding my breath because I don't want to jinx anything!

Thanks all! It seems that the Deciders have a week to Decide. Team Will has waited a long time; we can/must wait a little longer.
