Yeah, forgot to mention that. Quite the domino effect there! It's a bummer ... that's one of my favorite spots, now you have to go up and down some very steep and cruddy stuff. I might be helping to build a temp trail this weekend there.
It adds about 20 seconds to my time per 'pass' (twice per lap) and some climb ... I'm just cutting a corner at another point in the lap. Whatever. It's all about the time, for me.
