Another example of a cut idea which everyone had but I wasn't sure of it to be worth it, but still I gave it a go. And with quite some work, it did work out. This is actually a mindset to apply in real life.
Anyways, it was harder than the result may look.
First of all, the hole bump is easy to get once, but keeping 160km/h after it, which is crucial for a good time because of the long uphill, wasn't easy for me.
Then, also the overwall is easy and you can even fly behind the finish road, but being far enough to the left is another story. Just at the beginning of trying it, I got very close to the bugfinish once, built upon a bad start. It had 294km/h at CP2 and was just an atom distant from the finish, but it wasn't possible to get over that distance. I knew it was possible due to getting 295 and 296km/h at the CP out of other tries, but the trajectory turned out to be very hard to replicate as it resulted out of a bug at the overwall, which I wasn't able to replicate at all, or just slower. Thus, I resorted to trying normal overwalls, and I managed to get a landing right next to the finish, resulting in a grass slided 26.41. I already set my mind to record the 26.41 and show the close bugfin try, but literally an overnight bruteforce saved me.
