Mr Wonderful:
Mark went to the road, then worked his way back in. Igor went on the road past the Start, and came in around that way. Minium also went out to the road but cut in earlier than Igor. I'm curious how far south I have to pull 10 and/or 11 to make the south road option or middle more tempting. It was at least an extra km to go around north! Misovski said he went straight similar to yours, then stuffed up the landing - if he hadn't, he thinks he is in the top 3 split territory. His advantage is he's set here before and rides the mtb trail, so he knows what trail he's on without as much effort.

Al Newman thinks the fastest is not the trails you took, but the edge of the park along that blacked out private property/gravel pit - it's straight and flat. Particularly, at your 5.567 mile mark, cut through the valley rather than >2x trail distance around. Nice enough woods, flat.

Fastest way to the finish from the boulder is, I think, straight north down the hill to the trail, then trail loop around. Especially if you exit north, you are practically at the bend, so you aren't 2x as far to go around, and will easy run 2x as fast versus any mess you went through at the start to get to #1.

3-4 is faster straight I think. Woods are nice, no hills.

Fantastic on #2, so much carnage there and you just killed it! Plus you ripped up that west section, and didn't have too much trouble with #8, an Igor style special (break over of a reentrant, impossible to see from below).

Thanks for pickup!
