    Yeah. It's a pretty minor benefit if your base diet is good, and comes with the disadvantage of some weight from water retention.

    Sigh.

    Weekly race format and length

    How many categories do your tracks run for typical weekly race series? Is it different for different categories?

    Trying to get some idea of how what we do compares to other tracks.
