It was the weekend with the fastest competition draw of the 2005 season. Airspeed Odyssey (22.8), Airspeed Velocity (20.8) and Norway Arcteryx (20.7) all passed the 20.0 average benchmark. Round five had three random formations and one block on the agenda for the AAA Class teams (G-E-14-M), including the good old Star (M).
The sequence for this round was in favor of the AAA Class teams. The AA Class sequence was concluded with Block 14 (Bipole - Bipole), while the AAA Class teams did not only have the most convenient Star as the last formation of the sequence. It was also an easier AAA Class move from the Star to the Cataccord (G), compared to the AA Class transition from the second Bipole to the Cataccord. In addition, the shorter AA Class sequence brought the AA Class teams back to the longer block earlier than the AAA Class teams.
