Divisional Merges 2016!


Another post for you numbers people out there!!!  Like Manchester Invite, having all divisions compete on the same day and the same course reveals a plethora of data.  While the course can slow over the period of 6 races, this is the closest we can get to see how the best teams stack up against each other across divisions at Derryfield.  Now, one might wonder how this correlates to Meet of Champions held on a very flat and fast course, opposed the hilly and challenging Derryfield. In 2013, the Merge predicted 5 of the 6 qualifiers in both races.  In 2014, the Merge successfully predicted 5 of the 6 qualifiers in the girls race and 4 of the 6 qualifiers in the boys race.  In 2015, the Merge was a perfect 6 for 6 in the girls race and predicted 5 of 6 in the boys race.  Will the 2016 Merge have the same success?  For the past three years, the Merge is roughly averaging predicting 5 out of 6 teams.  Who will be the surprises this year??
