Introducing the 2005 Version
You really cannot
miss this all-new version of StageRace.
This new version improves the 2003
version at around 75 points. See the major changes that you will experience in
the listing below.

cut-offs typically get their final decision only after the race has finished.

be chosen. This is a great way to differentiate between publications for different
audiences (e.g. web, jury, press, etc.). For every profile you can exactly tailor
how publications are composed and how they will look.
