Pre Running MX Course at RJ's

Who is directly responsible for making the call to let riders pre-run the RJ's MX course the day before a race. This can surely not be seen as fair and offers a competitive advantage to all those that can make it. Why the hell are we stacking the deck in favour of some riders?

So should they change the track every year because people that have raced last year will have an "advantage". I've raced there the last four years I believe, and the track has barely changed at all.

Sorry, but I believe it's a moot point since the MX isn't a major part of the course. If it's the same as in the past, it will be split up into two or three sections. Over the course of a whole lap, you will run the whole track, but you will not run the whole track at one go.

Last weekend I spent Friday and Saturday riding the track (not course) at burnt river. At one point I saw my kids appear to ride over a hill by the endurocross track that had arrows up. I called them over and gave them crap, while telling them the rule that anyone caught preriding the course will automatically be disqualified. On Saturday I was hoping to play around on the endurocross track for a bit, but I asked Jill about it and she said it was off limits because it was already arrowed.

At least for me, if I can ride the MX track the day before a race, it makes me want to go more because then I can get a whole day plus 2hrs of riding, versus 2hrs for an entire weekend.
