The time is now

Yesterday at Babba's lodge a mate of mine bonked and did not finish his race, according to the time keepers he finished the race in 2 hours - a respectable time I might add - so I am confusedDead 

Does this mean that someone who actually finished the race was never registered to finish?

 

And how reliable is the timekeeping then if this happened.

He went past the timing station after shortcutting it to the start/end area?

 

Oh, and I've found the timing at Babbas to be reasonably accurate

happened to a mate of mine during a race at a fort to fort one year. they pitched up at his shop to give him prize money. wasn't his fault. he told the marshalls that he was abandoning, and was steered towards the finish line and crossed the timing mat.

If you cut it short or enter the long but ride short without changing just dont go over the finish mat.

He never finished.... we cut the chip off from his bike and gave it to the marshal - by then he was already registered as finished.

We did yes - and they insisted that he finishedBig%20smile so someone out there did not finishEmbarrassed I have the full list of peole and their times, so assume its one of the guys who did not "finish" the race on this list.
