PBP: The Numbers

Thanks to randonneuuring comrade Bruce Berg, who ferreted out the info on the official Paris-Brest-Paris website, the quick official rundown on PBP finishers and DNFs is:

5,160 starters

3,603 finishers.

128 hors delai (riders who got to controls or the finish beyond the allotted time)

1,429 did not finish

Finishing rate: 69.8 percent. That compares to roughly 86 percent in 2003. What a difference a little rain makes.

Here’s the link to the official rider list:


And for anyone who’s interested, here’s Bruce’s Excel spreadsheet of American riders only (the color-coded riders are those of local Bay Area interest):
