Aging Racefully

A couple years ago, I wrote an article, Aging Racefully, examining the use of age groups in races and how 5 year age groups relate to performance.  

The fact is, 5 year groups don't represent equal performance intervals. It's apples and oranges.  

This is especially true until a certain age. Then even one year makes a huge difference.

What age groups should be used?
