Notes:

The randonneur PBP. The Randonneur figures are now drawn exclusively from the results on the official PBP web site. Following PBP 2007 Alain Collongues scrutinized all the results data for ACP. He made corrections and added missing information. Before Alain's valuable work there were various sources of results information which some may still find interesting, and so I will leave some of the links and references intact. These sources include: the time results sections in the plaquettes (post-event booklets); the various contributors to this site [see notes for results section - near bottom of page]; the Lepertel/Bertrand historical article (go), and later its updated version on the PBP site (go); and the various statistical charts and tables from the plaquettes including the chart from the 1991 edition, page XXIII (go). The sources frequently contradicted each other, but generally not by much, so the figures found in these various historical sources can be regarded as having been relatively accurate. [Eric F October 2009]


The race PBP. The figures are from Paris - Brest - Paris: Histoire d'un course décennale 1891-1951 by Michel DARGENTON (go). [Bad link now - Sorry]

The audax PBP. The figures through 1976 are from page 40 of the 1976 UAF plaquette: Tableau recapitulatif des participations. For the years 1981-2006 the figures are taken from the table on the Audax PBP entry on fr.wikipedia.org (go).
