After weeks of agony, we got a new course to race at, and it is beautiful. And we'd like to point out some good news.
On their final lap, the Cat 1/2 pack risked sprinting into the back of one of the lesser groups, still on course. They elected as a group to go around one more time, and shouted this at the start officials.
Good choice! They got a clean finishing sprint (won by dEVo's own Trevor Pearson), and nobody was hurt. We salute this good behavior.
Other packs were generally safe, although the 4s do need to be wary of getting too squirrelly when the pack bunches up. We had a few close-ish calls, all of which resolved themselves without incident.
