    So far, based upon videos plus rider observations, the stages (as run) are all about speed, find the quick line through the corners, wrc stuff. The left turn at Albuquerque elements have been absent almost completely.

    It seems like one more step down the path to 15 sprints, may the fastest driver win. :dunno

    Didn't know what to expect with MC taking over the course layout, looks like he picked we he always excelled at when he was racing.

    It is hard not to root for Speedy this year. I can't think of anyone else I would want to see win more.

    Rear brake like the truck a couple of stages ago?
    I was reading the Ford Ranger specs and they have water refrigerated rear calipers, I didn't know such thing existed but apparently is the way to go.
