    Am I the only one completely confused by 5? Or are they talking about other competitors being in a section while it's being ridden? Must be...

    The riders were not allowed ever in a section in `13 when I scored, so I assume that has not changed. Even minders have to ask permission to enter a section and only the minder for the rider in the section can be in the ribbon.

    # 5 was probably talking about Team members. All these rules keeping them out of the sections was to create an even playing field. For years the top teams were cheating by altering the sections.

    I haven't been to a world round since the one in Washington state years ago, but back then the other competitors would stand in the section while a rider was riding and then only step out of his way at the last second .
    Sounds like this rule takes care of that.

    at about the 9 minute mark you can clearly see other riders walking the sections.

    You are correct, they are clearly walking the sections. I am not surprised, as a rider I would want to walk it. As a scorer it was a lot easier just having one minder to worry about. The FIM changes the rules often. In`13 the riders could alter the sections on the visit on Friday. I wonder if that is still allowed. Raga and company moved a huge rock in a section and rolled it down the hill. It was quite amusing watching them rub in the lines.

    I think a little bit gets lost in the translation.

    3. After the start of a Rider in the competition:


    - The rider can remain at all times within the Section unless the

    Chief Section Observer does not permit him access.

    - Only the corresponding numbered rider’s assistant (green bib) can

    enter the Section if the rider is about to enter and or is riding

    the Section and always only after asking for permission from the

    Chief Section Observer. No other persons are allowed inside.



    One of the rules I do like, is a rider on his first lap gets priority over a rider on his second lap. This occurs in the corridor to the section.

    These temps better move out in the next month (but I'm not seeing how). 111 in Kingman on Tuesday.
    What is it? Maybe 10-15 degrees cooler up on the mountain?

    Even at 15 degrees cooler that's still 96, way to hot for an event of this type if you ask me... :nah
