More sophisticated methods of analysing split times, using WinSplits and SplitsBrowser:
2012 data not yet available; the links below give 2011 analysis
Graphical presentation of individual and relay split times in
Select individuals (I) or Relay (R)
Select who you want to check (All or specific individuals/teams, by clicking on them).
The graph shows how each competitor has lost time, compared to the fastest time for each stage.
Both WinSplits and SplitsBrowser have split times for retirees

WinSplits is commercial software that helps analysis of split times from events
For each runner, position, name, club, finish time, time behind the winner and times and positions at each checkpoint are shown. There are two time rows. The upper row contains the split times, i.e. times between two subsequent checkpoints, and the lower row contains the total times, i e accumulated times from the start to a certain checkpoint. The positions are displayed within parentheses, on the upper row the ranking for the stage and on the second row the current race position. The appearance of the split time list can be altered by changing the settings at the bottom of the page. Read more about this (and other) topics in the WinSplits Help pages.
Colours are used to make certain information in the table appear more distinctly.
|red text colour||Red text colour indicates best split time and total time, respectively.|
|blue text colour||Blue text colour indicates that the split time or total time is among the three best.|
|grey, italic text colour||Interpolated times (times were interpolated before uploading, so this was not used)|
|pink background colour||Pink background colour means that time was lost on this stage, time taken was 25% longer than expected (taking overall time into account). See WinSplits Help for more information.|
|light yellow background colour||The light yellow hue of the background of the upper time row for each runner indicates that the times are split times.|
|darker yellow back colour||The somewhat darker yellow hue of the background of the lower of the time rows for each runner indicates that the times are total times (or real times if that setting is active).|
See Bonus Content which presents data graphically as time behind the eventual winning team. A straight declining line is ideal (you were that bit slower than the fastest). A step down shows (for example) a particularly slow stage. A rise shows you were clawing back towards the leader. Unfortunately, this bonus content is not editable, and only shows the first 10 teams.
Graphical presentation of split times in SplitsBrowser. The earlier problem with loading files to SplitsBrowser has been resolved.
Select competitors (All or specific people, by clicking on them). The graph shows how each competitor has lost time, compared to the fastest time for each stage, which corresponds to a horizontal straight line. Column widths are proportional to the fastest time for the stage.
Both utilities have split times for retirees up to the retirement point. In SplitsBrowser, the order of retirees has been randomly changed.
