I know no one takes any notice of rankings but...
Scores are in for the JK. Apparently my run the week before JK at the little CLARO event at Dob Park was better than either day at JK. How can this be?
Worse still, despite winning JK, I have this week slipped to 2nd in M55 because Graham Patten (nothing personal) scored 1347 points at the Cumbrian Galoppen last weekend. My scores for winning the JK were 1285 and 1288.
Every time I mention the possibility of a weighting for the major events I get shouted down by the statisticians. I don't understand. In any other sport you get more ranking points for winning a major event than your local league. What's different in orienteering?
It will be interesting to see what points are awarded for the British. Rant over.
