I’ve had several problems with the Fernwood to Saddle segment that the challenge has used for the last two years and finally changed it to a new segment today. The old segment ended in the parking lot, but sometimes it would stretch a little until the end of the parking lot almost to the start of the Stunt descent.
This meant that if you stopped somewhere in the parking lot to rest you would end up with a much longer time than expected since your rest would be included. The new segment ends before the parking lot begins so there should be fewer issues of people getting stuck with resting time.
For the top 15 places, the times dropped an average of 11 seconds. For the people who I knew had an issue with this their times dropped between 9 and 14 minutes (not seconds).
