For Future Reference

I find myself ranked suspiciously high right now, but these rankings evolve on a daily basis, depending upon new results added and 12 month old results falling off the average. I am perhaps the only one who looks to this list as a motivator, but I doubt it. In a few days, my 2007 New Britain results will drop off, hopefully to be replaced with some fine placings at Attleboro and New Britain next weekend. See where I stand now.
On a national scale of masters criterium racers, I find myself ranked 233 out of 4307 Masters. Here's the complete list. Nega-Coach is sure to chime in and tell us that everyone except for the top three on the list, suck.. or that they suck the least.

i don't think too much of this when amos is ranked in the 20's. he's #1 or #2 no doubt.

As much as I want to agree with you, the list you are looking at is ranking masters, and the rank given represents the average of the three top race ranks earned in the past 12 months. Regrettably, Amos has done only one masters race (Chris Thater) in the past 12 months, meaning that he is getting two 500 point ranks thrown into his average. All he needs to do to be at the top of this list is two more masters crits, and place really highly, win them in fact, if he wants to top Bill Y. or Dave P. or Bill M.
Not so easy to do, and I don't care who you are! Until that happens (and it inevitably will) he's ranked 20th and it's relative to doing masters crits, not to his overall ability, which as we all know, is superb.
