Anders- great job this year. Only suggestion would be to make the time cards out of VELCRO! I lost mine on day 2. I came off the bike and so did my time card, $100 bill, a go pro camera, and my CHAP STIK. The thing I was most pissed about was my CHAP STIK. I had bacon lips by the end of the day...

So- not only did I get an hour penalty for loosing my card, but ALSO a half hour penalty on top of that for "missing final time control at LORETO " at the end of the test! Well no duh. I had no card so they did not count me for some reason.

Well I got in double trouble that cost me 90 min.
