I've just glanced at the new leader board and like what I see. I have NOT examined it closely enough -- or done all of the math -- to give you a qualified evaluation. That said, if I'm tallying the in/out/rest times correctly, the Black Team is looking very good... Especially with "fresh" dogs waiting to be picked up along the way.
As they were getting ready to leave Paxson, Allen told me that his biggest concern was maintaining speed back to MacLaren. If I'm reading the board right, it looks like they were right up there with the fastest teams. I'd like to say more about that, but I'm too tired to calculate the hours/minutes right now.
Anyway, it all looks good and very, very exciting!
