Serves you right for claiming those scalps in the first two races. Skips were done purely by the numbers: the tens digit of the sum of your placings from the sprint and classic, with a max of 8.
But what I really wanted to say was that I'm entertained that this activity came up as "spinning". You should leave it that way to preserve your retirement. :-)
Actually, if you look at a GPS track for spinning, it's rather similar to a track for mazing. So rather astute by AP, I'd say. :-)
I've changed it, but only because my retirement was already blown by the entry for the maze sprint.
