Korten is in the white (far) lane vs. Attila

Having him there, doing well, raised the level of stoke exponentially. I've got a couple more clips I'll try to string together, including at least one complete run.

Groups of 8 are extremely competitive. Groups of 16 may be viable at events with over 75 racers. Jack's plan of top 8 bye, bracket 9 - 24, may be even better (especially since it's announced in advance).

We don't have near the talent pool to field 1 vs. 32, let alone 64 (yet).
