Determining times for a skiing event.

You are skier A, the first skier in a skiing event with three other skiers. Compared to your time, skier B is slower, by a time of +00:28. Skier C has a time of +02:13, and skier D has a time of -01:24. Since all times are compared to yours, what is your time?

Thank you so much.  This question shows how all the times relate to your number but I feel there is not enough information to figure out what actually is Skier A's time.  You just know that skier A compared to Skier C is faster than Skier C by by 2:13 seconds (-2.13)

Sorry, Marnie, let's do one more thing.  Who won the race?  They are comparing all times to yours, not giving official results. Write out the official results compared to the winner and you'll get your answer.
