Yeah last year's stage 2


No, Stage 1 is the new one. 5 is the IDMS one, (with the ski jump)


Ah ok cool. What's 3? the other rocky start from the top?


That's Friday's practice sorted - ride the top of stages 2 and 3 repeatedly.

Yeah 2 is the one that starts with the fast flat out straight down the rocky gulley, stage 3 is the one with the trias type top where ya have to hop up onto the ledge at the start. No mail sent out but the notes are on the EWS website and they say we do stage 1-4. Practice stage 3-4 from 10 til 1:30 then stage 1 and 2 from 1:30 to 5

Basically up to 6 people can register to start the race at the same time. There's usually only 5 or 10 min between waves so if you have more people than that you can easily sync up if you get 2 together.
