I recall a former organiser observing the request to send brevet cards via the normal post.   Over 300 cards went missing.

Over 10 days since the ride. So most (if not all) brevets should be back with the organiser.

Any indication on the dns and dnf rate?

The provisional results are up on aukweb.  There are 141 names on the list but as that includes people who I know were either dns or dnf I am guessing that that was the total entry.

I am still waiting anxiously to see whether the Royal Mail delivered my envelope.

I gather from Justin it's around 75 finishers out of 96 starters from over 150 entrants.

Strange that the results page is showing 143 finishers. Including someone I know didn't start.

I guess it will get sorted out in time

It's on my results page and though I'm knocking on a bit I'm pretty sure that I remember being a DNS

Best possible outcome... the points without the hassle of actually having to do it  :thumbsup:

The results for The Dean 2019 are no longer showing on the AUK website. Any idea why they have been taken down? Perhaps to sort out the finishers from the DNSs & DNFs?

Short answer: Yes.
I'd offer you some moral support - but I have questionable morals.

Can you ask for a recount based on the fact that your GPS time is more accurate than your receipt time?

Was checking about parking a car at Peartree... apparently it's £ 15... any tip to avoid the fee?

It was only £4.00 this year, and still seems to be that on their web site.  Where did you get £15.00 from?

My guess is the £15.00 is parking at the Travelodge for 24h.

Edit: no. £4 for a resident, £10 for non-resident.

That's the services. Don't park there. The event starts from the park and ride car park, which is £4. If you are staying in the hotel it's £4 to park in their car park.

Ah OK, very confusing that the AUK page says "starting from Peartree services"  ::-) ::-)

No, but above he says it actually starts from the Park & Ride... hence why I got confused. Not a big deal

It has always started from the park and ride before, not sure if this is a change or the event page is wrong.

I'm not sure but the services and park and ride are right next door to each other so it's not a massive difference - I usually finish at the Services anyway as you need a finish receipt, though central Oxford is permitted as well (based on past experience - notes from the organiser will clarify this closer to the date).

The map shows the Park & Ride - as usual.
