Things I learned officiating this weekend:

+ Electric jackets take up the same amount of space as fleece jackets - and are warmer.
+ It's cold in Tennessee in May.
+ Scoring a time trial and having accurate, on-time results is tedious, but with a good system - its efficient.
+ The average bike racer has NO idea what goes into scoring any event.
+ Masters 35+ criteriums can be officiated on cruise control ... speed - FAST
+ Junior parents don't know the rules
+ Garmin bicycle computers apparently make you faster than stop watches (multiple stop watches)
+ Tennessee bike racers are generally very well behaved

Great weekend, great mentoring - I actually learned a ton about officiating!
