    I'll bet you ran in and pulsed down with 30 seconds to
    spare!  Well, that MAY have been what I would've done.
    This ride brings up ANOTHER thought in my pea brain.
    What about courses so difficult, most riders can't
    make it in time?  What then?  I know the rules...and
    can imagine how the RM could fix it for next year. 
    However, some RM LOVE the tough trails and won't
    change it.  So now, only the hard-riding front runners
    can make time and even they take most of the time for
    that distance.
    Yes, I'd vote with my feet but has there ever been a
    protest for such a ride?  What was the outcome if so?
