On the ground, for event organization, it was kind of nice for a few reasons.
1. We didn't have to police the entire valley making sure people stayed off the course because it was open!
2. New riders were able to see what they were in for, do some testing on their bikes, do testing with the GPS and get ready to race on sunday.
3. there was no hometown advantage. with most riders being from out of town if gave them a chance to learn the terrain and get a feel for what was going on.
