I liked Evan's course a lot. It was a nice combination of fast offsets, sweepers and tight features that were tricky, which is pretty much what you are going to find with national level event courses. If there was one downside it was that the course was not particularly novice friendly as we had lots of spins, DNFs and a whooooole lot of cone killing from the less experienced entrants. I think this was probably a combination of some features that suckered people into overdriving them, some challenging visuals through the wallom, lots of speed, and some of the bumps in tricky places.
Some of these things we can adjust for with course design (challenging visuals for example, which is the hardest thing to learn but it comes with experience), but other things like bumps, offset/slalom speed runs that require quick hands, and sucker features are just part of the game. Evan is pretty good at throwing some things out there that separate contenders and pretenders, which is how he got the nickname "Dr. Evil."
In other news, The Shari McCoy brought the PAIN on a course that was generally described as requiring a lot of balls. So... Yeah.
