Looks like per your post, God squeaks out a win over Superman by a mere 6 seconds!
But wait! You lumped #9 and #10 together, and Bone didn't win #10... he was 11 seconds slower than both Kolyvek & Roach (2:30 vs. 2:19). This 11 second difference flips the win to Superman by an even more exciting 5 seconds!
Oh man, even more exciting, in the Superman wins version of the scoring... God is ahead by 1 second at the GO control, but Superman hammers down the "faster than a speeding bullet" and wins the race in the chute!
Also, I was surprised to find that I beat God by 1 second on #17!
Ah good catch, fixed it. Even with His attempts at mitigating His own advantage, God did not expect to be beaten by Superman!
Oh wow, you wrote a LOT more on this post after I originally commented. It seems like God spend a lot of time confirming things!
Also, you wrote about #19: "Straightforward longish running leg, but with a tricky touch at the end."
I thought this leg had some route choice. I'm assuming that the best route was straightish until the forest corner with trail that goes back between #4 and #5?
I took trails leaving #18 to the right.
Haha yes, a Zeus Mode (i.e. God of Gods Mode, i.e. with flags placed) time would've been around 45 I think.
Yes, I went straight on 19 to the forest corner with the trail leading up the hill, but I think it's marginal at best - and the trails may actually be faster for those who are more hesitant moving through the junk underfoot.
