    What happened to the bottle opener medal?

    We planned on having the bottle opener medal however in the uncertainty in 2020 due to Covid we had to revert back to the medal from the first fastlane. Had we bought the bottle opener medal we would have to wait one full year with the stock of bottle opener medals in the event of the race being  cancelled. Medals have to be ordered 3 months in advance. Thanks for your understanding.
