Ummmmmm, something is wrong with this story. If she took the Oregon course, it is taught by Team Oregon, and it is NOT MSF. What you describe would not happen, and on the off chance that it did, something went very wrong and she needs to call Team Oregon and tell them what happened, they will make it right. My recent ex-girlfriend is an instructor for them, they are extremely strict in requiring adherence to the curriculum, down to what you say and how much time it takes. The ONLY way a class changes is by special request IF nobody is signed up yet, and it never happens after the class has started. There are no normal head on exercises, she may have been describing the big street exercise at the end, but that happens at the very end of the course after the final test, and you NEVER get anywhere close to 45 mph. 25 is probably the absolute max, and most people don't touch that. I don't think you ever go above second gear. If the class she took was not done by Team Oregon (but was in Oregon), then she took the wrong class.
