Cyber Chicken
On 1/5/2008 peters wrote in from United States  (24.18.nnn.nnn)

Head to head cyber - a race for the middle cone, no timer needed, only the cojones to skate a straight line.





RIGHT ON SPENCER with the PR! - "the kid" has been steadily improving all winter

Pressure switch update: kinda working, but right now kinda not. Seems like the tubes need a release valve because when there's pressure in the tube the switch is always "on", still tinkering...

to remove or not to remove, hahaa
On 12/15/2007 peters wrote in from United States  (24.18.nnn.nnn)

hmm, interesting, i thought there would be some 'corrections' on the cyber rankings, considering the discussion below? not that anyone with the luxury of dry climate and practicing on "real hills" in winter really cares about this stuff!!

we're testing these pressure tubes over the winter as tape switches with Tway timers, and they're working great!

not sure if they would be able to replace the official tape switches but we'll keep testing and know by next spring.

cyber or real meeting ?
On 9/6/2007 Fred wrote in from France  (82.66.nnn.nnn)

In my opinion, cyber slalom should stay "cyber"...

I mean, it may not be very interesting ( for competitors and spectators ) during a world cup or a european championship ?!

We have all the time during the "dead season" to practice cyber !!!

removing cyber time
On 9/6/2007 Guillaume Saint-Criq wrote in from France  (194.79.nnn.nnn)

ok I agree with removing my time from cyber ranking.

We will try to do it in a "professional" way, checking a perfect cone distance and do it both way.
Then we will post new times.

see you in Grenoble

Surf in NC

"I have heard there is surf in NC? can someone confirm that information please."

Hit the forums here to ask the pertinent surf questions. It's
4 hours from Statesville to the coast. We've had some
good waves in the last month around Carolina Beach, and
a little farther North.

Surf NC

Google 'surf' and 'North Carolina' and you will see.

I tried cyber surfing once, but it washed away my chalk marks too easily. And the push start was a real b*tch.

Those are some very fast times! Are people pushing, pumping, or a combination of both? The world record for the mile run is something like 3:43.

Grenoble Cyber Slalom Cup?

Ncdsa will consider all requests from potential event organizers who are willing to put forth a proper effort to organize and run the next Cyber Slalom Cup event. We'll even put up the cash to get medals made up like in 2005. Email me if you want to be that organizer!

Peter,

The one to give the ok on where the Cyberslalom Cup can be held is the webmaster himself - Adam N.. I'd say off the top of my head that Grenoble would be a great place to hold it. How many days apart is Grenoble from the World Championships?

Cyber challange 2007

Mr Micheal Dong, what do think of running a or the Cyber Challange in Grenoble?
The place is flat, everybody in Urope will be there and the french can get two guys on the podium. Should be a perfect time to get sub 8 for you and Mr Allan.

Is it ok the run it?

Yours fastest

gs cyber
On 7/9/2007 Michael Dong wrote in from United States  (204.11.nnn.nnn)

Yes, do away with some cones.

Same 15ft distance to first cone (first cone is offset from centerline by 9" (center of cone). 17 cones, now 9ft apart = same 144ft distance between first and last cone. same 15ft to finish. Must run both ways because entry it on different sides depending upon which side you enter. Certain stances will have an advantage if you only run it from one direction.

Have fun,

Michael

GS cyber
On 7/7/2007 munchh wrote in from United Kingdom  (217.44.nnn.nnn)

Hey Micheal,

that one sound interesting, we run cyber at hove every week, but it is normally too windy one way or the other to go both ways, i think one of us has a time up, but i havent wanted to as i have never run it with no wind or an average.

So this GS version, if you use the same start finish, do you mean you do away with some cones, or 25 cones 9' centre 9" offset, with the same 15' either end?

Thanks.

Wind
On 7/6/2007 Michael Dong wrote in from United States  (67.160.nnn.nnn)

If it is in an area that is always windy, just run both directions and average. Good to do this always if possible.

Allan, cyber will REALLY help for Grenoble. Also, mod the course slightly by spacing cones 9' and offset 9" from centerline (center of cone to center-line). This is the "GS" version of cyber. Same start, same finish, and you can use the markings as every 3rd cone is in the same place, the others are between the markings. It is a bit different in that you enter different sides of the first cone depending on the direction. Really helps flatland offsets.

what about the wind...
On 7/6/2007 patrick allan wrote in from France  (82.226.nnn.nnn)

ok
1. it's conceivable that our measurements may be slightly approximative, they should be pretty damn close, but that's what I will indeed check first the next time we go do cyber (which we still haven't done since march...)
we had aleady tried to do an ncdsa cyber for a parisian outlaw race and messed up forgetting the 15' after the last cone (7.493s) so we really did try and do this as "profesionally" as possible
2. what about the wind? what can you possibly do about wind, if not race indoors?
3. our timer is just fine, it's the timer we have used for all of our outlaw races and the pswc.

One more note
On 7/5/2007 Michael Dong wrote in from United States  (204.11.nnn.nnn)

One more very important thing I forgot: This is what I have done in the past when I had relatively big improvements in my cyber times (0.2 or more) and I was doubtful of the big improvement:

1. Check the course measurements (# of cones, distances, everything).
2. Was there any wind involved?
3. Is my timer system accurate?

For 3, I compare my times with a basic stop watch. It is best if you have a partner to hit the stop watch exactly when your front wheels cross the start tape switch and have them push their skateboard (fast) to meet you at the finish and hit the stop watch again when your front wheels hit the finish tape switch. Compare the timer with the stopwatch. Should be damn close.

Good luck
