I'd say about 90% of the racers rode this one. However, to ride it without catching air and doing an endo (like me in practice), you have to slow quite a bit on the approach. First lap, we were bunched up and the guy in front of me started to apply brakes for the mound. I dismounted at pace and actually ran along side him as he looped over the mound, lost a little ground on the downside, but on remount was about even. I ended up running it about half of the time and riding it after I got dropped. An interesting obstacle. The other was a nice 180 ridable runup . . .
