There was a split start last year and the year before i believe. As long as the gates are timed together its pretty cool.

Split by a tunnel? I think it will be interesting to see what the riders think

I think they are pretty creative this year, so far the tracks have been great and different each time!

The format variety too, with the triple crown + east/west shoot outs, the racing coverage, the nets, so it is getting better and better (only improvements to do, some reliability during RDL, removing the tuff blocs on triple as suggested by one vital member, improving the rider's protection/to make it mandatory, maybe add a couple series in limited rounds like during the triple crown such as 2 strokes, electric, Loretta, etc). It is great as usual and keeps improving.

EDIT: I should have added, it is almost perfect, just minor changes (a few "limited edition tracks" would be cool too; Larocco, MC, RV, RC, Emig, etc), so please do not change drastically what is currently working well ! THANKS!

I agree Question, it has provided some great racing this year all around

I don’t see a split start. Looks like a left hand start.

That's what I was thinking too

I really wish that over under was the finish line jump. It would make me feel nice.

I wish they'd actually make use of the over/under, and not just use it as a gate separator. Still a neat concept if they keep it.

I like the idea for track size purposes however I don't see how it really matters for racing, they still end up in the same spot

what race was that when they had a split start with 2 different 1st turns going in opposite directions before coming back together? I want to say like 03-ish or so.

Too bad Alessi isn’t racing this year, would be EPIC to see someone holeshot from the far right gate.

First few gates to the left of the tunnel jump have the best angle into the first turn I feel like.

I was thinking the outside may have a good chance at this race. Who knows? Time Will tell I suppose.

Hartebreak- it seems like I have a fuzzy memory of something like that wassat

Outside of A2 (think it was) it has been good. Whatever round of the first triple crown was awful
