Nifty Ten Fifty 2023 Results:

Today, Sunday April 2, 2023 I will be compiling and posting results incrementally as the day passes. Josephine Nitschke (a.k.a.) Fini En) was our strongest female rider. While I thought Kenny Owen had a strong enough performance on the day to take the men's title there was another strong rider, way ahead and unbeknownst to me, quietly crushing the course at warp speed and setting new Strava records on Marin and Claremont/Grizzly/Volmer. That would be James Kinney. While I haven't yet applied the age/gender handicaps, 27 year old Kinney, with no handicaps whatsoever, is almost certainly fast enough to take the overall title even with age/gender adjustment. The overall title before handicaps is determined by summing the placing on each of 3 climbs, which are weighted equally. Lowest number wins. Note that many riders did not register the top of the final climb for some reason. I have fixed what I can but some riders have private accounts and I cannot get in without permission. If you see that you should be here but are missing results, please LMK and friend me on Strava and/or make your ride public and/or send me your ride url. Paul McKenzie.

Below are the overall results with age/gender compensation. Even playing field for all. Note that even with zero handicap, James Kinney still crushes the competition. What an amazing rider. Arguably the fastest human ever to ride the Nifty! Numbers are total minutes on the three climbs that were scored with handicap applied. Special mention goes to Women's champ Josephine Nitschke (a.k.a. Fini En), and Kenny Owen the runner up men's after Kinney. Also Hugh Rodman who completed the Nifty after a 170 mile brisk jaunt the day before! A big thank you to everyone who came out to ride and especially Mary Ann Jawilli and Steve Schwartz for helping out with logistics! Numbers below are minutes in total spent on the 3 timed sectors with handicap time subtracted for age/gender.
