"... but it adds 57 per cent to take account of the fact you make turns rather than going straight down the slopes,”

Some seem to make far more turns
:laugh:

BTW: I wonder which statistic lets them add 57 per cent... 57.32 would appear more exact :D

I have this exact same problem whenever I get my hair cut!

Ask a female to just take off an "inch!" She cuts like 1/4 in. off. I walk out looking like I haven't had a haircut! :dunno:

Ask a Male barber to take off the same inch,.... He chops off 2-1/2 - 3 inches! :blink: :blink:

Funny how the perception of length is so Gender dependent, Eh? :laugh: :laugh:


[edit]
Hey neni,.. bet you were throwin' up a sweet rooster tail behind ya bombing that run! ;)

Haha, even if the run isn't steep, you gain pretty nice speed if you stay exactly in this flat pre-track :) Advantage of riding behind someone who's straightlining all the time: you have a flat track that'll allow yourself to gain more speed and I never have problems to find him, even if I lost sight :laugh:
