At current average rates, how long before Amanda "overtakes" Kajsa?

Hmm, I did wonder that after I posed the question.

Incorrect. Guinness has agreed to accept UMCA record-keeping for the Year Record (they certified Kurt Searvogel). So Amanda is going head-head against Kajsa for the Female World Record... and quite possibly for the overall title as well.

However, Kajsa does not qualify for the UMCA HAM'R record as she never registered with them.

While I agree, I find it all very strange... What if a person decided to have Guinness *and* the UMCA verify their record, and then it was rejected by Guinness for either lacking documentation or a rules violation? Would they then accept the UMCA approved submission for the same record attempt?

I don't think so.
Guinness did accept the men's record UMCA, but will be maintaining their own rules for the women's record as Kajsa had already agreed the rules with Guinness prior to starting her own attempt.

Do you really think Guinness is going to reject a successful women's UMCA record attempt after validating a man's under the same rules?

Time will tell.
They have already changed the rules for the women's record twice. Unpaced rules, then UMCA rules, then back to the unpaced rules.
Kajsa's record is based on unpaced rules, Amanda's on UMCA rules: They are going for different records.

Day 16 (Amanda Coker) / Day 151 (Kajsa Tylen):

218 miles for Amanda in Flatwood while Kajsa has a windy 82 miles now in Sweden.

Extrapolating wildly based on their average daily rates to date, we might expect Kajsa and Amanda to reach 19,000 miles on the same day in early August. This does of course assume there are no major changes in progress, which for a challenge of this scale is far from assured.

Day 17 (Amanda Coker) / Day 152 (Kajsa Tylen):

The machine that is Amanda rides another 220 miles of Flatwoods. She is now 2484 miles ahead of Billie Dovey's record pace and 319 miles ahead of Kurt's WR rate. Kajsa has more headwind in southern Sweden to contend with as she rides east from Malmö for 84 miles.

Day 18 (Amanda Coker) / Day 153 (Kajsa Tylen):

230 miles of Flatwood back and forth for Amanda sees her with 4093 miles in two and half weeks with nothing to indicate she won't smash the world record before her year's out. Kajsa calls an early halt after 51 miles as strong winds in the flat southern Swedish landscape make progress tough. She remains a few days ahead of the pace required for a 50kkm annual total.

Day 19 (Amanda Coker) / Day 154 (Kajsa Tylen):

The miles just keep rolling past for Amanda, as she adds another 232 miles to her total. Since she started she has been riding around 19 miles per day further than Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa rides for 109 miles on the island of Öland – a virtual cutout of Vättern she will be circumnavigating later in the month. Her century ride nudges up her Eddington number to 87.

Just hang on - it's June. Wasn't Kurt somewhere up in Wisconsin by this time last year? What is the temperature in Florida at the moment?

Day 20 (Amanda Coker) / Day 155 (Kajsa Tylen):

Day 21 (Amanda Coker) / Day 156 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 1 (Alicia Searvogel):

More monster miles from 'manda on her familiar roads – 233 of them, taking her three week total to 4791. That's a weekly average of nearly 1600 miles. Kajsa has more Öland fun as she clocks up another 89 miles. Another 7 more rides of that distance or greater and she will equal Billie Dovey's annual Eddington number E=89. Alicia Searvogel joins the HAMR/OYTT/Guinness challengers with a solid start. She rides the Tour de Rock on home turf in Little Rock Arkansas followed by an afternoon warmdown in the rain for a day one total of 125 miles.

Day 22 (Amanda Coker) / Day 157 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 2 (Alicia Searvogel):

Amanda's longest day yet as she rides an incredible 266 miles in under 15 hours taking her total distance to 5058 miles in little over three weeks. Should she be able to keep up the pace of the first three weeks (230 miles per day), she would reach an annual total of nearly 84,000 miles, increasing the world record by 10%. Meanwhile Kajsa continues to explore Öland with another century ride. Alicia also adds another 105 miles of Little Rock riding on her second day.

Day 23 (Amanda Coker) / Day 158 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 3 (Alicia Searvogel):

Amanda faces the first, and probably not the last, tropical storm with very heavy rain and wind but nevertheless manages 162 miles. Combined with her long ride the day before she has still managed to gain a further 10 miles over Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa sticks to Öland with another 96 miles of riding. Alicia rides the river trail for 94 miles tracking just ahead of Kajsa's first few days.

Day 24 (Amanda Coker) / Day 159 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 4 (Alicia Searvogel):

Bad weather stops play in Florida for a while as floods and tornado warnings from tropical storm Colin (yes, Colin) mean a late start for Amanda. Nevertheless she manages to fit in 167 miles of fast riding in the afternoon keeping her 384 miles above world record pace. Kajsa cracks a tooth before her ride so has to cut her ride a little short at 89 miles to fit in a dentist's appointment. Alicia rides her third Little Rock century in four days putting her 101 miles above the Dovey line.

Day 25 (Amanda Coker) / Day 160 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 5 (Alicia Searvogel):

GPS problems and flooded trails conspire to add interest to Amanda's day in Flatwood but they don't stop her from another fast 234 miles. She's currently 410 miles ahead of WR pace. Kajsa has her final day on Öland and bags another century, or 111 miles to be precise. She's not far off a 1000 mile lead over the Dovey line. Alicia has a bit of slow morning and then pedal problems cut her afternoon ride short for a total of 84 miles.

Day 26 (Amanda Coker) / Day 161 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 6 (Alicia Searvogel):

Another wet day of riding in Flatwoods for Amanda and another 234 miles to match. She is now two days or 424 miles ahead of Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa moves back to the southern Swedish mainland for a 110 mile coastal ride to Kalmar taking her over 1000 miles in front of Billie Dovey's pace. Another century ticked off too for Alicia in Little Rock.

Day 27 (Amanda Coker) / Day 162 (Kajsa Tyler) / Day 7 (Alicia Searvogel):

More rain and flood diversions for Amanda, not that any of that stops her from completing another 225 miles. Kajsa has a colder and wetter day in remote southern Sweden than anticipated and so keeps it short at 49 miles. Alicia does 103 Little Rock miles for an average in her first week of 97 miles per day.
