Paddleup Percentiles

Post by djberriman » Fri Dec 06, 2019 9:51 am

Good news for those paddlers in smaller divisions we have tweaked the PU percentile slightly to be fairer to top ranked paddlers in smaller divisions.

For those of you interested in the formula it was simply:-

ceil((rank/totalbibs)*100)

and is now

ceil((rank/totalbibs)*100) - floor(100/totalbibs)

makes little difference to any but the top few paddlers in smaller divisions, it just lifts them to a top of a range rather than being at the bottom, so from say 4% to 1% for the paddler ranked 1st.
