No, but I raced for 1 hour there and it was not so much fun. The locals will run you over and it will hurt.

2011 may be the year I finally go do this.  Add me to that "couple others" list.

Ack.  I couldn't imagine doing more than a couple hours at Oleta.  Interesting place for a recreational ride though. 
 
I think I'm good for Cohutta...but I'm doing the 65 mile event not the 100.
