U16 Team 705 : Final resultts rankings not modified after disqualification of other teams

FAQCategory: Course questionsU16 Team 705 : Final resultts rankings not modified after disqualification of other teams
AvatarFrancois HILAIRE asked 9 months ago

am Romain’s dad. Romain HILAIRE and Charlie Bear VOLAVKA (team 705 in U16) were told they arrived 1st after disqualification of the two teams that were initially announced as 1st and 2nd, as they both skipped parts of the race.

On the podium, they got the winner’s trophy.

I am surprised that the official tie and rank show my kid’s team as 3rd and the two disqualified teams as still 1st and 2nd.

Could you please clarify and modify the times and ranking accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards

Hi Francois 
We were given details of three teams during the race that a marshal thought had skipped part of the course.  However, when we checked the photographic footage of that section, we confirmed that all three teams did in fact complete that section properly.  The two other Under 16 teams therefore did come in first and second which is reflected in the result times.
By the way, we don’t take trophies back as we feel that is unfair to the competitors awarded on the day even if a marshalling error has changed the final positions.  The boys did really well during a tough race.
If you have any further questions please feel free to email me on registration@team-fear.com.
Kind regards
