I’m travelling and won’t have the ability to do another ride this month, so my 10 months done RRTY is entirely dependent on PBP homologation.

Is homogulation in doubt? Surely if you over the brevet card with all the stamps with correct times, everything should be fine.

See whichever other thread it was... two minutes late at Brest, 1 minute late at Tinteniac. Everyone reckons it’ll be fine, but...

1 minute late at Tinteniac won't be a problem  :)

2 minutes late at Brest might be  :(

However, certain Audax luminaries in the past have come in after 90 hours and still been credited so it's not impossible.

My advice would be to challenge the result (if it's non-homologation) pleading mitigating circumstances. You really should have told them at the finish about all the time you spent helping a fellow rider who was in difficulty....
You're only as successful as your last 1200...

Looking at your tracker, I make you a minute and 35 secs out of time at Brest, but a minute or two inside at Tinteniac on the return before being well inside time at the arrivée.

However, it also shows you leaving Rambouillet 3 mins 12 secs later than your nominal start time  ...

I thought I'd finished another RRtY yesterday by riding a DIY 200km, but wasn't sure how many I'd done. When I checked I found I'd completed my 15th RRtY last month.

I appear to have completed RRtY 2 yesterday (subject to validation).  A hilly route from Ponteland, taking in the climb over Carter Bar and the long, long slog back south through Wauchope forest.  As well as lots of smaller climbs, some short and steep, some long and gentle, some long and steepish (the climb  west out of Bonchester Bridge).  Because I'm quite slow uphill, this was a full value ride but I managed to get round within the time limit. 

Elsdon village is in a bowl of land between the surrounding hills, so held the freezing cold air from the night before and on the way down Gibbet hill there looked like a bit of frost or black ice in places so I took it very carefully.  To add to the fun, a few of the minor roads were in very bad condition with loose gravel and stones, and lots of potholes.  In one case a short stretch that was completely flooded.  On the recumbent my feet / pedals are out front so well clear of the ground - at least my feet stayed dry, I just had to hope there weren't any serious hazards hidden under the water.

Completed my second RRtY yesterday. All but one were Blacksheep rides. One permanent in January when I finished the calendar event (Mr Pickwick's January Sale) about 15 minutes out of time. Mark took pity on me and offered ne a permanent which I completed later in the month.

Unlike the previous year's rides the weather was pretty decent for all of these.

Not updated in a while

No's 1,2 and 3 are all claimed

No 4 is on going since February

Feb 19 - Snow Roads Perm
March - Moffat Toffee
April - Auld Alliance
May - Over the Hill and Back
June - Argyll Alps
July- Fort Bill 1000
August - Fash 200 (DIY)
Sept  - Kilrymanjaro + ECE
Oct - Tour of Rheged

Planned
Nov -  Long Dark Teatime (hopefully not as wet as last year)
Dec - Braco Way + ECE
January - I've still to work out what to do

Number 5 has had a number of false starts so far, hopefully just started it yesterday.

I've had an idea that one of my RRTYs should include rides exclusivley taken on Islands smaller than Ireland.
I've got a number of routes mapped out in my RWGPS and includes a full SR series.
If I did it, it would be the only rides for that year as I'd soon be skint...
I'll post about it on a new thread

Am trying to decide if I wanna try a second RRtY. I've got 5/12ths of an AUK attempt, and 4/12ths of a RNL attempt.

The last one involved crashing on ice, crashing on spilt diesel, and frost injuries. Do I want to put myself through it again...

On the other hand RRtY can be a good motivation to get some miles in over the winter months.  Especially if you have some flexibility over when you do the ride and can pick a day with reasonable weather.  Obviously not so easy if working a fixed timetable or full time.
