Thank you, I'll try and work on that.. next event is the 16th so hopefully I can improve on looking further ahead and using more of the track like EH6TunerDaniel said...

Here's the course map to explain...

Any and all comments / tips are greatly appreciated.. I was shifting into 2nd right about the start of the first slalom and leaving it in second for the rest of each run.
