Kinda backs up my earlier comment about the drive along the bottom on the way back being a good bit faster than Champs leap. Almost makes up for my tardy start.

Ain't no mere 3 or 4 frames in my estimation. More like 30 to 40, possibly!

At the belly of the snowman on the way back (getting surreal already..), my front wheel overlaps Champs back wheel, precisely. By the time he takes off over the mines, he has pulled away another half a wheel (give or take) - so he is going a lot faster than me - at that point. From the moment my back wheel touches down and starts driving, on the Finish side of that mine pit, I get pretty close to not only overcoming the speed deficit, but closing down the large gap as well.

I took an instant decision not to wheelie along the last 'Old Rugged Tree' section, as I didn't want to jeopardise the run - not being sure if a backwards flip and backwheel finish would work out. Still not sure on that one, but if so then it's quite possible that I might have pipped Champ even on this run despite the gap at the mines.

Phew..

The point being that this level could go a lot quicker.

The council for the Defence rests it's case (for the moment) M'lud..

Or should that be prosecution?

No - I'm def a Defender kind of Guy. Or Guardian. Yea - Of the Galaxy - that appeals. But not a Racoon, I think - however smart. Or a tree, unfortunatelee.

Now - where's that Walkman and those mixtapes?..

can't see this atm cause i'm on my iphone, but good job on getting into the 19s. i think ghost bike (and a modern apple device) probably makes a gigantic difference. i have never run this map against a ghost.

Ghost bike can be a mixed Blessing. Anxiety hard on your heels, sometimes..

Modern Apple device sure beats a broken Palm

Get yourself one. Oh hey - you've already got one..

But of course - you need an older one...

Sorry bro but ain't no case restin' going on here. Studying the reply closely reveals quite easily that Th Champ held a lead of between approx .24-.32 seconds at various points throughout the run, but ended only .14 ahead of you.

That means you gained between .10-.18 seconds on the final stretch where you stayed very close to the ground and he didn't. That's 5-9 frames that you managed to pull on him.

If you could gain 30-40 frames, that puts you at 18.xx. And I swear on the soul of my father, Domingo Montoya , if you land an 18.xx on Double Sprint, I will quit BoD por vida, concluding unequivocally that I am vastly inferior to your biking wizardry.
