Many events want you to edit your profile and add a 3-4 character code to help distinguish you during the ride. Other events try to “normalize” parameters by having you modify your bike characteristics. When the event ends, you’ve got to go back in an put everything back or change it to another event’s codes. I rode around for a while as a woman because my thumb hit [Female] when I was changing my name with Mobile Link… Man, was my butt big!! ;-)
Anyway, why not automate the process? The system knows in what events you’re registered. Code each event with it’s own 3-4 character ID and any other necessary characteristics for the person or bike. When event starts, automatically append the event ID to the rider’s name and make whatever modifications to the rider or bike that the event requires. If it requires the A-B-C-D classification in the name, add that in the appropriate place too based on FTP or history. When the event ends, just drop all the temporary mods. This would significantly simplify the event participation process.
