We were out today in the "warm" weather doing a bit of recon on the second half of the course. What did we find?
1) I'm out of shape.
2) If there is an early Spring the odds are good that the roads will be in pristine riding condition. Most of the roads were pretty firm today so for the most part a cross tire would have been enough.
3) This race will be a challenge. Doable, but don't expect that it will be like a road century.
4) 90% of the dogs on the route are either nice and friendly or so old that they can't begin to chase you.
Some info that might actually be useful to some of you: The race notes will be roughly 4.25" wide x 5.5" tall.
Here is a picture of Jake dominating the crap out of a car. That happened to have been in the ditch for a long time.
