Summer Inline Series Standings after two weeks

Skaters warming-up before the 7:00 PM start

Night #2:

The weather threatened mightily on Wednesday, but thanks to the Oval grounds crew and their squeegee, the course was dry enough to race.  Skaters competed in a two person three lap pursuit, followed by 26 laps of pain (10k), and a miss and out (where the person in last place at the end of each lap is eliminated). Lomen & Boberg teamed up in the pursuit and skated to first place, Ron and Tom traded the top spots in the next two events on a lovely evening at the Oval.

This my understanding of how the scoring appears to be working:

  • If 9 people race in a category on a given night then winning the race is worth 9 points, second is worth 8, etc.
  • If 20 people race in that same category the next week then winning the race is worth 20 points, 19 for second, etc.
  • Points for each race on a night of racing are added together to get a nightly total.  Point totals from each week are then added together.
  • There is no omnium point scoring system.
  • That means you need to be sure to attend on the nights a large group of people plan to attend, since a large group would diminish the value of doing well in a week with only 10 skaters.  That said, skaters are well advised to disregard the scoring entirely and treat the Series as training – intense training. Missing a single night will likely eliminate you for total point contention anyway – so stay focused on improving technique, learning racing strategies, and beating Randy Landucci.
  • The decision was made to have races next Wednesday, the night before Independence Day, when millions of Americans will be traveling.
