Agreed, long stages seem to favor the young and childless. I propose a 3 x dadbod sprint, stages equal length with a compulsory beer chug between.

Beer crits were a thing, and should still be a thing

Few years back there was a stage at WEA that was chug then climb Wardens. The chug was optional and not part of the time.

It seems as if it is creating a result page for x amount of stages #4 (3) #6 (2) but instead of listing the individual stages it adds them all up as one and duplicating that result x amount of times (?)…

Is he puking from the beer or the shame of those pants?

You're riding for the wrong Team if they're no longer a thing.

Coincidentally, I rode the last stage last night, coming up from the RT connector.

Pingu has seen some nice work leading up to our race. A word of caution - the wooden drop near the top has gotten a new landing, but the transition is really short. It's probably faster to hit the drop than go around, but I am planning to roll it SLOW. At speed, it would be a flat landing.

shirk - can you confirm that we are indeed riding Incline and not Salvation after Corkscrew?

Yeah, the new drop is quite short.

And I think we are riding Incline (right junction) after Corkscrew. It definitely gets a little spicy in the open section before the powerlines!

Yes Incline. Both the map and written show Incline, not sure why there would be confusion to use Salvation.
