    +nikkiab86 there are no rules prohibiting anyone from jumping all the way from the start to the finish line. Rules don't dictate techniques. As long as you follow the track and don't cheat using external devices - you can do whatever you want.

    Unless you identify as a bird, then you can use an airplane to race. If you disagree, you are racist and homophobic towards creatures with wings.
