New thread started for Battle Mountain 2019

Links:
Mr Larrington's Automatic Diary: http://automatic-diary.blogspot.com
Jun's results page will this year appear on the IHPVA site: http://ihpva.org/whpsc/ (I'll update this with a link to the correct page when available)
Mr Zuckerberg's walled garden: https://www.facebook.com/groups/123929127660938/

Dave is already out there, I fly out with LSBU on Thursday from Heathrow, landing in San Fransisco and then a 10hr drive to Battle Mountain. Much crashing done in practice, hopefully this has got it all out of the way prior to problem-free runs in Nevada...LOL

I'll use this thread to provide ongoing updates. If the internet is OK at the Big Chief Motel I'll try and post some YouTube videos...

For anyone who wants to experience the giddy thrill of a run down the Battle Mountain 5 mile course, here's a video which I've been using for turbo training: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAub9Qv18mQ
It's been crudely slowed down and sped up from a video we took last year at a steady 60mph using a Go-Pro strapped to the front of the hire car, unfortunately after the mile marker boards had been removed. There's a 2min pause at the start to get your nerves tingling...Confused
If you view it the YouTube app on your phone, there's a drop down top right with an option to view in Cardboard (or any other VR headset that takes a phone - I got one off ebay for £3) - this splits the screen into left and right eye and gives you a budget VR experience :)
(highlighted yellow in the screenshot below)

Does the underlying SCIENCE of this forum understand tables?  If it does I can whack in a list of runners and riders, but otherwise it'll just look a mess.

Only got a piddly little screen on this lapdancer and it's running Open Office, so importing the thing from Excel has broken it.  Bah!
