Bug Fixes in Release V3.21
Saturday, June 14 2008
Today the V2005.3.21 version
of StageRace was released that fixes a small handfull of bugs.
StageRace V3.20 Out Now!
Tuesday, August 21 2007
With again a year full of great cycling events passed, now is
the day the all-new V2005.3.20
version of StageRace sees the light. This larger increment brings
again a number of cool improvements.
Ever tried entering the start times for a time trial in reverse
order? Now StageRace can do this automatically for you. Also, the
difference between half stages and stages has even further faded,
where appropriate, on the printed publications, which has always
been a much talked about issue for StageRace users. Also, you can
choose to exclude competitors that finished after the deadline,
on the same day already, for all derived classifications.
The most important and anticipated new feature of the V2005.3.20
release is the export to CSV (comma-separated values) format, which
enables easier processing by journalists, web designers, and broadcasting
ProTour Race Eneco Tour Happily Using StageRace
Sunday, August 20 2006
After many years, the Eneco Tour said goodbye to their home-cooked
administration solution, and switched to StageRace administration
their race both the Eneco Tour's organisation and the panel of Dutch,
Belgian and international officials have expressed their satisfaction
about how race results look and the speed with which classifications
can be generated, once the stage ranking becomes available from
the photo finish and transponder systems.
The Eneco Tour 2006 is a new road cycling event in Belgium and
Netherlands, running from August 16th through 23rd. It was started
in 2005 to become part of the UCI ProTour, but originates from the
"the Netherlands Tour" that has run for many years. Römers
Sports Timing, a timing company in the Netherlands that is exclusively
aimed at road cycling, performs the timing and race administration
of this high-exposure event, for which they use the brand-new V2005.3.10
that was released about a week ago. During parts of the Eneco Tour
they had on-site StageRace support available.

V2005 Final Released Production Version
Tuesday, August 15 2006
a number of improvements, but also finally with the new, heavily
rewritten V2005 Help system, today StageRace V2005.3 went from its
enduring bèta state to final ("production") and
is available for download.
StageRace V2005 bèta was for far over a year now used by
StageRace customers without any notable problems, at a substantial
number of actual events and is a safe choice in your production
environment of road cycling administration.
First Update for V2005 Bèta
Monday, May 9 2005
Tour de Georga
was once again a 'life' test case for the newest from StageRace. Phoenix Sports
Technology used our new V2005.3.00 bèta there, with great succes. They
reported back to us: "you have really done a spectacular job with the new
2005 (bèta) of the StageRace program". We are glad to hear, but some
small imperfections were nonetheless found, fixed and lead to today's V3.01 bèta
release, available for download.
StageRace 2005 Bèta
Monday, April 4 2005
proudly anounce that the V2005 bèta release version is now available for
download. Issues can be reported.
Note that this version is still shipped
with the V2003 Help system. The Help system will shortly be updated in one of
the upcoming releases of StageRace 2005. Updates to the software will be released
on basis of any reported issues.
Though still being a bèta version,
this version is the result of a lengthy development and testing process, part
of which at actual events, under the supervision of our Professional users, which
were using an internal bèta build.
The software for our V2005 version is almost done, and ready for
public bèta release. This bèta version will be released and available
for download as of Monday, April 4 2005, so check back soon!
Future Version Bèta at Georgia Tour
April 30 2004
Like last year, StageRace was the official administration
software at the Tour de Georgia, in the state of Georgia, United States, that
was held April 20 thru 25. Tour de Georgia has swiftly grown to become the premier
stage race event in the States.
Phoenix Sports Technology from Pennsylvania,
United States, who again was the time keeper on-site, was madly enthousiast about
the StageRace V2005 bèta that they were provided with for doing this race.
Apart from few minor annoyances, in this bèta version, the software performed
to outermost satisfaction of its operators.
After solving some small issues
and implementing some more new features, the V2005 version is now expected to
be released late fall of 2004, amply in time for the 2005 season.
about Future Version
Monday, February 9 2004
upcoming new StageRace 2004 version that was scheduled for beta release in February
2004 has been put off indefinitely.
Forced reallocation of all our resources
to a different project has forced us to reprioritize our efforts on StageRace.
StageRace 2003 is currently providing customers with a very satisfactory level
of completeness and functionality, so that the absence of a successor will presently
not lead to direct problems, which played a big role in this decision.
We are very sorry that we have to leave a software version on the shelve that
is for over 90% ready for beta. As soon as time allows more work to be done on
StageRace, you will be informed again through the usual channels.
Brings Time Trial Import
Friday, June 6 2003
new V2.10 update now finally brings classification
import for time trials, which was still heavily missed by some users. Second new
feature of this update is support of the third-party TT*Ware time trial processor.
Additionally, some other improvements or even bug fixes are made to this version.
Meanwhile, the development team is already working on some great new features
for next year's upgrade version of StageRace, and many improvements and features
are being examined and lined up for implementation, as development of StageRace

Results processing at Tour de Georgia using StageRace software
In their first year, Tour de Georgia had the highest possible 2.3 UCI ranking.
Their ambition is soon to become one of the big, leading races on the North American
international calendar. And they might just succeed, as this first edition was
with ample success.
Phoenix Sports Technology (Pennsylvania, U.S.A.)
is the premier North American sports timing company for various high profile sports,
among which road cycling. They have experience timing le Tour de France,
and they are currently contracted by the UCI to do the timing of all World Cup
Track events on this year's calendar.
Phoenix S.T. recently migrated to
StageRace software for use at road cycling events. The first StageRace administrated
event on their calendar was the Tour de Georgia, April 22nd to 27th 2003.
Backed up from the Netherlands by StageRace support, Phoenix S.T. got
through their exciting first use of StageRace and successfully put together printed
and online classifications for this event, mainly based on FinishLynx photo finish
output, and this all at high pace.

2003 Premieres at G.P. Erik Breukink
Monday, March 17
It (March 14-16) was a weekend of Eriks with the G.P. Erik Breukink in the
Netherlands. The event, that carries the name of former professional racer Erik
Breukink, got a great home country victory through Rabobank's Erik Dekker, who
proved his form after a year that was dominated by a big injury.
any actual stage wins, Dekker had a two seconds lead in the general classification.
For some reason, two seconds leads is about as good as it gets in Dutch stage
races. But this turned out to be no problem for StageRace. All classifications
after the last stage, a time trial, were ready within minutes.
In the preamble
to the first stage, some small imperfections of the software were detected. These
will be resolved in an update at the end of March.
See the results
that we have mirrored on our web site under Previews.

Final Release StageRace
Wednesday, March 12 2003
In the consideration
of reaching a high level of quality or meeting the deadline that was
set earlier for the final release of StageRace, Totaal Software chose for the
former and pushed forward the final release to today.
But as of today the
final release is available; fixing some outstanding bugs, improving some more
points and adding new features such as sign in lists and miles (rather than only
This final release available for
download on the StageRace web site is considered stable and safe for
use at actual events. And it will accordingly be used at real events, starting
the following weekend.
UCI Rule 2.6.016 Better Explained
Wednesday, March 12 2003
UCI Road Races rule 2.6.016 about the "final
general individual classification by points" suggests that, in case of a
draw, the number of wins in intermediate sprints should be taken into consideration.
Consultation of UCI officials and UCI headquarters confirms the interpretation
of this rule that has been used during StageRace 2003 development.
intermediate sprints used for resolving a draw should be sprints that count to
the particular points classifications anyway. If there is a points classification
that only adds up the points from stage finishes, the intermediate sprints from
some other, independent sprint classification are not taken into account.
Why is this points classification rule then talking about intermediate sprints
anyway? Well, for instance le Tour de France has a points classification ("green
jersey") that is calculated from stage finish points plus intermediate sprints'
points. Obviously, these (so called) hot-spots are used to resolve draws. (Note
that this kind of classification, which le Tour de France calls points classification,
is handled in StageRace as a sprint classification.)
Many races have independent
points and sprint classifications. The general consensus is that these should
not be mixed to resolve draws.
