2012 Eastern Regional Championships

The 2012 USSA Eastern Regional Championships were hosted by NE Masters of Eastern Division at Killington, VT and Pico Mountain, VT on February 9-12, 2012. The regional championships are a 4-discipline SC/SG/GS/SL event, with super-combined included in the combined scoring for the overall regional class champion awards.

In a change from the traditional schedule later in the season, the February event takes advantage of mid-winter conditions and give competitors a chance to recharge their batteries before the NEMS and NY State Finals, as well as the National Championships in March. The scheduling also gives masters the opportunity to race on the challenging terrain offered by Killington and Pico.

Killington's Needle's Eye will be the site of the super G and super combined, with training on Thursday and racing on Friday. Non-stop rolls and terrain changes will challenge racers in the SG, which will be followed by a one-run slalom to form a super combined. The technical events will be held at Pico over the weekend with separate A/B and C/D courses in slalom for men and women. All four events will count toward the overall Eastern Championship scoring and the SG is part of the 2012 National Speed Series. Awards parties will wrap up each day and will include the usual array of food, video, prizes and raffles. The results for the Easterns will once again be included in the yearlong scoring for the New England Masters Series. Be there!

Tiebreaker Notes: there was one tie in the overall age class combined standings, with a 1st place tie in M8 between Robert Andree and Rick Walters with 65 points each. The tie was broken by applying the best-finish tiebreaker rule. Based on the best-finish tiebreaker criteria, the regional champion is Rick Walters with 1-1-3 finish record over Robert Andree with 1-2-2 rank ordered finish record.

Eastern Region Class Champions

The Eastern Region class championship is awarded to the racer in each age class who accumulates the most world cup points in the three events of the regional championships.

Note: the regionals were originally planned as a 4-event SG-SC-GS-SL championship. The regional championship scoring was changed to a 3-event SG-GS-SL combined when the SC event was dropped (replaced by a second SG race, which was scored as part of the 2012 National Speed Series).

Additional Scoring Reports (Just for Fun!)

The Additional Reports section includes alternative rankings and groupings of the results that give competitors additional ways to compare themselves with other racers outside their immediate age class. Rankings organized by national group or gender or in the overall rankings of all competitors who were on the same course allows racers to see how they compare against different sets of competitors.
