Here is the route sheet.
Route Sheet Error?
There appears to be couple errors in the route sheet.
75.3 km STR @ 15:30 then it jumps to
114.8 km(?) R PR W 1/4 25:30 (Should it not read 75.9 km?)
and then at 115.0 km (?) @ 26:00 (Scarp this line?)
gets back on track at 76.2 km @ 17:00
Also at 94.8 km reset to 130.5 km (?)( I believe it should read reset to 96.8 km)
and at 97.2 km it's back on track.
Play with your print page settings. The page breaks are not quite right. I found that by reducing the bottom margin slightly, everything works out.
Route sheet Error?
Whoo, that makes me feel better. I was getting panicked.
For Novice A, 7 resets and two different speed changes....nasty!
To quote Richard L, "Its a National, deal with it".
The resets are for the benefit of the Novices as they are not riding the really tough stuff that the upper classes have to and the speed changes are purely to get the riders off the roads faster.
Actually i think the speed changes are cool, and a good way to get lates or earlies if you aren't paying attention. Speed changes should be used more often for both the challenge and the safety (as you suggested) of getting people of roads quicker.
I'm sure Richard L would love to make the double track sections in the Great Pine 48kph's........Who needs rest or sections to make up time?
If it's a National it better have something tougher than simple speed changes.....how about say 30km of pure uninterrupted single track....something to separate the Men and the boy's
Your a Man right Scott good for 50km of straight single track..YES
Cause I'm laying out the Great Pine AGAIN
Speaking of Speed changes. Anybody remember what year we rode the Cord and the section from Hay Lake Dam down to Eagle Lake on the Hydro line was, I think 60kph, It may have only been 48kph but in any event it was like a desert race in those rocks. I think it was 85 or 87.
