Thanks! Can we get a link to a Google sheet or Excel file to be able to sort by start time for each race?

Those meddling kids asking for things in the cloud!
Seriously though, good luck ya'll!

You would think that a savvy engineering student at the U of M would offer his talents up to his home club and create a template that could do that very thing....

Just for you Michael...
Google Sheet Start Times

NOTE: These are the originally published start times, and do not reflect any adjustments that have happened since then. If your time was adjusted, you already know about it.

I've merged the posted start list above with the registration list so I could tag the starters with their class and then sort on start time, etc. 7 people appear on the 13:30 4/27/2017 version of the registration list but do not have start times shown in the original start list:

Bordelon Brigitte F 18 USMAOC OUSA_TT-Women OUSA_TT-Women OUSA_TT-Women 15
Budde Diana F 51 no_club Public_Brown 22
Budde Rick M 53 no_club Public_Green 23
Lexen James M 24 no_club Public_Orange 100
Peterson Megan F 27 no_club Public_Orange 131
Peterson Justin M 32 no_club Public_Orange 132
Wiita Eric M 32 no_club Public_Orange 195

Not sure if they've withdrawn or simply registered after the start list was drawn, but it would be good to confirm that JNT member Brigitte Bordelon does have a start time if she's still planning to run.

NOTE that my versions of the start lists here are UNOFFICIAL! I have parsed the info available online and I may have introduced mistakes. Refer only to the event official's posted information and instructions for your start times. I am not an event official.

For the sprint start list I separated Jr from Sr based on age, but realize that might not put the Jrs in the class they requested. Also ages on the edge could go either way. Here is the Sprint start list sorted by start time:


The three Canadians are all starting together at the start of the TT blocks. This might be at their request, but perhaps they'd rather be mixed with the US M/W blocks instead so they aren't always running so close to each other. Up to them.

The beginning of the Sr men's block looks ok, but there are some starters strung way off the back. Ken Jr for example starts almost an hour after the rest of the men's start block, and there are 3 more trialers a half-hour after that. That seems a bit excessive given that all the others are starting together in a 10-minute window.

The 4 Sr women are spread out from each other with several non-trialers between them. The spread isn't so bad, however Alison and Tori are listed as being on the Short course, while Molly and Kseniya are listed as being on the Long course.

Brigitte withdrew, and the others you listed registered after the start times were published. The time separations you mentioned were a result of some competitors not declaring eligibility for the WOC team (e.g., Ken), and therefore not being included in the team trial block.

Yep, I can't go this year.

Here is the Middle start list sorted by start time. Again, this is an UNOFFICIAL start list - competitors should not rely on this for their start times:


Philip, have the Sr women been assigned new start times in a separate trialers block or are they running in these original positions? If they have new times (and if you get a chance) can you email them to me or update the online startlists. Thanks!

Hey Eddie there is one senior women trying out for WOC everyone else has indicated they are not going to WOC. The senior women's start block is whenever that person is starting and everyone else can be put wherever on the start list by the organizers.
