    Larry- There are not many more years left to do this- as it's not a sport for older dudes- so we are trying to get it before the body cant do it anymore.

    They released the course notes today. Click HERE to read about it.

    Summary I got from it:

    Day 1 hard
    Day 2 super hard
    Day 3 even harder and finish on the factory roof
    Day 4. WTF were we thinking hard.

    And you didn't mention the Prolog, which by itself is pretty good test of rider ability - and damn fun to watch!

    Best of luck to you Matt, and to the rest of your riders! How soon do you leave for Romania? Are you going to have a few days of riding over there before the competition starts?

    So, I think I got if figured out, the "team" classes are allowed to work together were outside assistance would not otherwise be allowed, the flipside being that they have to move through the course together ie; the scored time is that of the last rider to check in.

    The obvious answer to my second question is that Enduro21.com snapshots are only showing top 20 results for Bronze and Silver. duh:lol3

    Sounds like you are right! From Romaniacs website;
    "Currently no active live feed
    (technical problems due to bad weather)
    But you can listen to Red Bull Romaniacs radio, and watch the live video action on Thursday!"
