One of my pet things I like about Audax a lot is the whole 'pre-modern olympiad record keeping' romance. I presumed that Audax Club Paris stores everything in servers/filing cabinets of their own, with Audax UK acting as a kind of intermediary. Or do I have this wrong?

The reason I ask is I was hoping to find a big long list of all of 2019's super randonneurs from all over the world in one place, sortable by year, but perhaps there is no such a thing and I can refer only to the Audax UK list instead.

If there is such a think I thought it might be accessible at http://www.audax-uaf.com/ or http://www.audax-club-parisien.com/ but I have combed for a few minutes and come to nowt. It's not exactly a life or death requirement and doing it by hand would have been painstaking but now my curiosity is piqued...

Certainly they have records of all brm rides completed as I could look at all the rides I had done when I was registering for PBP.. But the system does not offer a list.as far as I can tell.

There is no published Super Randonneur list for the world. A few countries publish lists; often an annual blogpost.

ACP records all BRM results world wide but doesn’t publish a list of SRs. They do maintain a list of Randonneur 5000 and Randonneur 10000 but all of their awards have to be claimed. This includes SRs and not all folk do that.

Few organisations automatically calculate awards from their records like AUK does.

If the PBP system reflected the underlying data, there isn't a solid concept of a unique person in the BRM database, just non-unique names and clubs and rides. It's easy to end up listed under different clubs for different rides (e.g. one of my foreign rides ended up as AUK rather than ACH). Some people probably have ambiguous/varying names, and there are no doubt duplicate names too.

So I doubt they know.
