    Riding hard or just putt-putting along wouldn't make any difference to a constant-speed centrifugal electric pump but if the engine's calling for more fuel than a restricted inlet can supply to the pump then, yes, it would appear to be out of fuel when the pump starts to cavitate.

    Nope, Mischa showing correct 09:15 start times for those who are already off, the rest still show original start times, so they are listed first now.

    This reminds me, we didn't have a mass start this year. Those used to be fun.

    That sounds about right but am I dreaming it or did they start back to front on the last stage last year? I think they did.
