Yep, the two big ones. The guy on the bull horn said DO NOT go through the tape, that if it was too tight, you could shoot the small gap to the right of the big tree on the right. But it get's worse - just beyond are more trees right in the middle of the trail.
A guy in the pro race at noon crashed pretty hard, there, took a while to clear the bike and make sure he was OK to move before continuing the row launches. I thought it was pretty dangerous, and it had me a little worried. I was prepared to just hang back and be last if necessary vs getting busted up in a heap.
