Where'd you find the info?  All I heard about this was Jeff Glorioso yelling
in my ear while I tried to navigate a very wet Coliseum course during our
first event.
"Shauna won another race!!"
"Great, Jeff - do you remember how to turn a 180 spin into a 360?"

Imagine!  70!

Lessee - you make Y chromosome deficiency a criterion for entry, and you end

How PC of them to avoid the traditional swimsuit competition.  So actual
ability to drive a car is worth a whole 50%.  That's fantastic.  It has kind
of a symmetry to it, y'know?  Only 50% of the human race is eligible, so
only 50% of the results count...

I guess, one more time, I just don't get it.
