Yep! Ill be there on Sat around 2pm and Sunday for the race.

Course is much different than the Alafia course.  Some 'sustained' climbing and less gnar. Hopefully it will suit me better than Alafia did, as I have poor technical skills, apparently :(

Tally will really be good for the roadies - long sustained climbs - nothing too technical and plenty of room to pass when riding back and forth across the big field

Word has it the long field is gone which may shorten the course and add more laps

I'm planning to be @ Tom Brown around 2pm on Sat to do a ton of pre-riding.

5:30pm for the Team TT - should be interesting...
