During the race briefing everyone was listening intensely for any useful information on the course. The big highlight in the briefing: The large land slide that created a two foot drop in a 100 foot section of Cherry Valley Road near the Delaware Water Gap has not been repaired. Instead of a repair or a detour, two ramps were placed at the ends of the disturbed section. Additionally the 100 foot section has been designated a single file / no passing zone until you exit the damaged area. It should make at least this short section of the race interesting.
