Nice looking course! And given the number of people finishing near each other in different handicaps it was well weighted as well. I haven't raced on the new map yet. People may remember that area was used for the 2013 Raid the Hammer (Oakville edition). Then DGL went and got it properly mapped for use in ARK and Spring ARK Fest. The new map opens up lots more options.
Sorry I wasn't able to race (was busy that day). I was also looking forward to a showdown race with Super .
Hey Hammer - thanks to the DGL folks for letting us use their maps (and SI units and registration kit and...)!
I remember the area from that race and part of the reason we wanted to use the area. Initially we thought south of Dundas would also be available but then realized only north had been mapped to O standards so we had to use the area given which worked out well anyway! Our main concern was safety; as you know the area is either flat or steep to get out of the valley, tough terrain for being so wet, but everyone seemed to have fun.
No worries about missing the race, at least a Waddington took the W. Top-5 in the O-Cup overall standing is gonna be a tight one (to be posted soon).
