Exactly. What I have experienced (when riding in similar areas to where the course will be) is that when it rains hard, and the course runs along the base of nearby hills, the runoff coming down hill can cut square edges into the track. With enough rain, the cuts can be really deep. Don't know if this will be a factor, just trying to think ahead of what we might encounter.
