Just looked at the supercross ig story and they changed the finish line jump section to a whoop section and the triple before coming across the start straight into the finish line. Thoughts?

I think that's a better layout. A whoop section provides a much better opportunity for passing than a finish line double. Back to back whoop sections are gnarly, though!

Also, a turn right before the finish line has the potential for some crazy inside dive bombs.Those LCQ's could be interesting!

Dude. Every SX has potentially dangerous obstacles in lanes right next too each other.

Yep.

In fact, I think they should make a triple the finish line every time. It's almost a waste of an obstacle either way, and i'd take another whoop section as a potentially passing spot any day of the week than a double or triple that's almost always follow the leader.
