Watopia mountain

I rode watopia mountain course today and when I finished my ride and it uploaded to Strava, looks like I actually did a loop around Muie village before going across the water. I typically go the exact same distance as described in the route details but this time it fell short of where I started.

On every ride that I’ve done I never start at the start finish line. I always start where my avatar is dropped at so thats why I need to remember how far each route is.

Is there a question in there somewhere? Not sure what point you are trying to make.

Yes there in is a question. Why did the Watopia mountain route not follow the course as described and why does my avatar just drop me off anywhere and not at the start/finish line?
