March 27, 2012 – I’ve again assembled the data from the Big Race out in Wisconsin in to a bunch of nerdy-but-interesting data on BirkieGuide.com. Feel free to share it around. After a couple too many nights not getting to bed on time, I’ve finally gotten the ducks in order (I hope) and launched everything on to the statistics site. So if you are bemoaning the early spring and want to launch yourself deep in to mostly meaningless statistical “analyses” from the race, by all means, go ahead and do so.
Let us know if there’s anything else you’d like to see. I can make no guarantees — it’s time to spend my evenings doing something more productive, like training and core — but if you have an interesting idea, have at it.
A couple of highlights:
- Most of the data is back from last year, and most of it in an easier-to-navigate fashion
- We did some comparisons with last year
New data include:
- split time correlations
- a really interesting page showing that top skiers ski at a much steadier relative pace than everyone else (my favorite new data)
- information correlating weather conditions and Birkie sign-ups (it also has MSP snowfall data back to 1900)
- And a whole lot more…
You can find all of it at HERE and of course find the homepage at www.birkieguide.com.
