Thank you.

BTW, this applies to me and perhaps other older athletes. Saving energy in the windup is crucial to my speed endurance. On a 250 (VSC), I use a very shallow windup, never going all the the way to the balustrade. The top of the banners in 3 and 4 is plenty high for me, and I've got enough left in the tank to get up to speed where I need to and hang on to it through the second 100 meters.

Like I know what I'm doing or something...
