2008 course descriptions

Post  BikeBeth on Wed Oct 01, 2008 9:45 pm

Ryan and Steve took a few test runs on the 2008 course earlier tonight while carrying a GPS. Below are the stats from Ryan's GPS...Steve's recorded a very slightly longer course, probably due to taking more outside turns. We'll run a few more laps and see how it averages out. Just a test run, so we weren't timing, especially since Steve didn't have a light and Ryan's PBR chug tonight was an embarrassment. (Although he did record a 13-second chug earlier in the week.)
Note that the standard course is mostly flat (37.6%) and the PBR shortcut has more descending (39.2%, not including falling on your face). And we've met our goal of a mile-long course, finally.

Sorry, no posting of the Google Earth map...FSX is still invite-only, and a satellite map would pretty much put an end to that...

Dry FSX. I guarantee it.

It will not rain during FSX on Thursday. It just won't.
I spent quite a bit of time with the sun gods this year and earned myself some pull in the weather department. I couldn't work a deal to secure a completely rain-free day, but I have the sign-off that the showers will be over by the time we light the fire before Race 1.
Riders will race free of rain. I guarantee it.
Oh, you're welcome.

Other fun stats to add to course description...

Feet of caution tape used: 10,000
Number of step-in stakes used: 302
Number of PBR cans in trees: 37 (so far)
Number of Christmas lights strung in pines: 169 (so far)
Number of people who've pre-ridden the course: 26 (as of 4:35 on 10-7)
