The dust has settled nicely after the "Mint" for this year...it was really weird that BITD decided to split it into two races that didn't even go 400 miles in the first place and even stranger that class-1100/12 was put in with the "slower" group. Since when is class-12 (1100) considered "slow"...same goes for 1/2-1600 and class-5U, as far as that is concerned!!! I guess I'm just really upset about the whole Mint format with two sperate events/runs...it really detracted from the "Mint-400" mystique! Heck, it wasn't even on the traditional course... If I'm gonna pay those outragous BITD entry and GPS tracking fees, I want to get the full Monte. COMMENTS?? I'm sure there will be plenty!!
