Just got home! Had a freakin blast! It was fun watching the glean in Flug's eyes digging the whole experience. (I think).

I'll see about getting some pics up tomorrow but I'm sure they will be kinda lame compared to Scott's 20# camera shots.

+1. awesome it was. the weather cooperated, I'd imagine if it had been cold or wet or both not so much fun but we had the full day experience and the fun just never ended. I'm really thinking I'll go to Toronto if any of the locals are up for a road trip. who ever is running the SX show has created quite a product to get that kind of spectacle in the #1 stadium on the planet.

I have to agree. Of course getting to and out of the first corner in front is part of the race but the amount of wrecks and overshoots seemed to indicate a problem or at least for me didn't add anything to the race.

do they ever have a first turn that goes to the right?
edit, just looked at the track maps, didn't see any. would a little variety hurt?

They do it in the outdoors series, don't see why they wouldn't do in indoors.

Because your rear brake is on the right and you can't use it if your foot is out they make them go to the left. Supposed to be safer...

The double apex first corner was actually pretty good I thought, first corner is always a problem, rare to not have some go down in any first corner, just part of SX/MX. The double apex opened it up some.

There was a right hand first corner somewhere recently, don't remember where though, might even have been outdoors last year? I don't remember it causing more than normal problems?
