    Question on Friday Practice Schedule going forward

    At Houston, the practice schedule was changed from 6 sessions to 5 - 3 morning and 2 afternoon to split up the LWT group into Novice and Expert. I know this was changed at lunchtime because of poor turnout, but what is the plan going forward with this?

    I sometimes do only the afternoon practice depending on how easily I can get to the track, so you end up paying $80 for only 2 sessions, and that might not be enough if you have a few things to work on.

    I'm guessing some folks were complaining about LWT groups being too crowded with novice and expert - I haven't found that too big a problem, having been in most of those sessions this year.

    I had 2 sessions in the afternoon and I missed another one of them for work. I'm pretty sure there were still 3 in the AM and 3 in the PM.

    I personally do not like have the LW bikes with the ULW bikes in Novice. Most of the expert LW bikes do a good job passing us slower folks in a reasonable manner. The novice LW bikes not so much.

    I like the split.

    Yes there was but it wasn’t what was on the plan. The planned schedule was 2 sessions in the afternoon, so my question concerns if this will be the case going forward.

    Rab, take a closer look at the MSRH Friday schedule. There were 3 afternoon rounds on the schedule.
