What do people (honestly) think about stage length?
For BW2016 I'm looking at an option that would bring a 40km (24 mile) long stage that would take about 40 minutes for the 'average' team to complete? (Yes, average average speed of 38mph. Max average speed of 45mph)
Having done one similar in 2006 (50km in 38 min) I know it was a workout, but absolutely worth it.
Of course there are safety concerns that come into a stage that long, but if those could be managed... what do people think?
