Something isn’t right... statistically it’s not possible for those scores to all be legit. Something is off

Anyone notice the scores appeared much more normal on Sunday. Could that be because one of the skiers wanted to resurvey the course. A little magic and scores were back where they belonged. Big Dawg scores were way down on Sunday. Those scores seemed to reflect the way the boat also performed in Mississippi big dawg. However these scores represent how the boat seems to be for 55k. Magically the scores returned to a normal pattern for the finals.

Maybe the previous night's Sangria is the reason the scores were down. No inside info, just based on my personal performance after a big party.
Maybe the moon's gravitational pull played a role.

Not the first time multiple 41 have been run same tournament. At the Swiss in 2012 three skiers in a row ran 41. NAte Smith, will Asher and Jon Travers
At McCormicks with in a year happened again Chris Parrish, Will Asher And Jon Travers The mind set at head to head is a lot different than slaloming straight up. In qualifying rounds. Two boats two divers. During head to head. These slalom skiers and event host work really hard, we need to show them a lot more respect.

Maybe a little gravitational pull. Or a little pull on the buoys

The new Nautique is released with a bunch of bad press from the Big Dawg and almost miraculously a guy runs two 41s in a row. It gets better, four guys run 41 in a Nautique event. The boat must be amazing.

Sund wasn't behind a '19

When I see the rope being attached to the carabiner section, does make you wonder if a switch rope was actually used? Easy to make an honest mistake with that.

Nor did Sund come near running 41 off he posted a score equal to his pb in a record 2@41. Now take a pass away and it looks like the same scores behind that boat in Mississippi

But, Duh, he "ran 51 ,twice, on his XtTR. " or whatever. Duh

51. Is that a new rope length

Either way has the same chance to run in a tourny way with a camera on lake.

More than likely a rope mess up. It's probably 39 that he runs. 2 ball is not very clean, a hiccup here and there...can't do that at 41. Still great skiing! Greg's been one of the most solid at 39--lean and strong.

the rumor the rope was too long doesn't totally add up for me, unless say the mainline section was like 1' too long, so they ran 40off, and then went to 42off?
My rationale is that since ALL these guys run 39 and can easily get 3@41, yet none could get to 2@"42". if the rope was a foot or so longer, you'd think they would get further down the line. which leaves the driving (which appeared consistent for all skiers), an obvious thing from end course video or boat judge. finally the course dimensions, but a TC needs to sign off on that. So where and who are they?
