Let this be a lesson to you...

This pic is photographic proof of my teammate finishing in 5th place at the Cat4 women's road race at Patterson on Saturday (the one on the left). This was her first race, and she would have had two upgrade points. However, Velopromo recorded it wrong and gave her placing to another rider, although we did not know this until now.

The lesson is, of course, that mistakes happen and that if you care about your upgrade points then you'll verify the results at all costs. I feel really bad for her just because it's her first race and it's special to see your name up there "in lights" for the first time. :(
