Today's task was a 93 Km. task that produced some good racing with climbs to 9000'. Josh was leading the pack much of the day. It all went wrong, for the lead gaggles, behind the mesa on the North side of launch. The leg between the 6th turnpoint and goal at the lake, just wasn't producing lift and the crowd dirted fairly quickly.
I was able to watch much of this task using Livetrack 24 and it was an exciting event. The application/server situation isn't perfect yet, but we're making progress.
