Try 40

The point where the track meets the apron isn't a smooth transition. It's a v-shaped crack. Just thinking about it will cost you a few MPH as you pucker-up.

hmm, lemme see - according to my data, i hit 67.5 kph at some point during the PRS omnium in July

it also feels like the radius is variable, and like it's shortest right in the middle of turns 3 and 4, so you really dip down and change direction hard and fast.

Since when has "butt-pucker" been an excuse for not performing your best?

Edit: maybe back in the day when soda-loading was a thing.
