what a GREAT day!
conditions were great, a bit of threat of rain which held off.
Loop was very managable and relatively short.
Eight very nice sections with varied conditions and challenges.
MY FIRST EVER CLEAN LOOP!
Fun way to check today - 3 riders were sent to each section, as A B or C. As "8 B" (mike and i together were "one" at this section due to its length), we rode our first loop, checked the 2nd, rode loops 3 and 4, checked #5, rode #6. Every rider checked 2 loops in one section throughout the day. Worked well in most places and cases as far as we could tell, and solved the challenge of not having enough riders to be able to have skilled checkers at each section.
