Bent's cycling is sponsoring a training ride of the projected courses for the 6hrs of El Legarto.  If you have never ridden Carter/Loyce Harpe and are thinking about racing, this is the ride for you.  It is a no one gets dropped, stop and work on a harder section you can't clear, get to know the course ride.  Everyone is invited: Red Course riders, Corporate course riders, women riders, and juniors. 

Bent's is supplying water before the ride and SWAG for after the ride.

I heard they ran the lower part of Rollercoaster, is that true? What about Big Momma's?

Where were you last night? I saw Peggy, said you were a wuss or something? J/K ;D She said you were working.

No, I'll be doing the Santos Epic Sunday. I can ride Carter blindfolded as long as no alligators jump in my way! :D Just been contemplating doing the 6hr solo, trying to find out what the red course is gonna be.
