So how does the change of start affect the course mileage? Will it be more than 135 now, or will that out-and-back section be shortened?

Pierre says it is about 0.3 of a mile shorter. Really it makes no difference as the finish used to be closer, and the placement of the tipi will be different, too. etc.
