Time to Climb!

After a false start to the WP series last week, we are set to go tomorrow. It looks like good racing weather.

We'll have the tent set up at the bottom. Look for the Golden Wheelmen banner. Don't forget you are supposed to mark your age and class on your calf. I believe they requested the left calf. eg. If you are 42 and racing the Sport class, you would mark S 42 on your leg. I'll try to have markers available at the tent.

For those who haven't raced this event, it's straightforward. The course takes service roads to the top. It has a section that is a bit steeper at the bottom, there is a flat section about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way thru the race, and the last couple hundred yards are a bit steeper. The rest is relatively constant with a few small rollers. The nice thing about this race is that you don't have to memorize much about the course. There's only one hill...

Good luck to everyone. Ride Fast!
