Even if you were serious, I couldn't get out there this weekend. The extension looks pretty fun though. I'll definitely try to get out there again this year.

Did they finally get rid of the crazy lines all over the place?

I really liked the new section - it still had the seams, but you couldn't feel them.
The entry to it rocked

The pavement was much smoother than the rest of the track and I noticed no problems with grip (we were warned in the meeting)

It definitely felt/sounded a lot different on the knee sliders, where the rest of the track is a rough grinding noise the new section was really smooth
