Configuration remains out-back, repeated for the 100. For better or worse, no more signature alpine loop. Instead it's now a nasty serpentine configuration. The plus, or shall we say, up-side of not being able to dread the loop is that the new course just went from 10k/20k of climbing, to a hair under 12k/24k. And I gotta say, she's beautiful! We'll get those maps up soon enough.
