Rest Day

So the folks putting on this little goofball event in the heartland posted a video on their event website previewing the course this year. What was posted doesn't represent the course in the least bit. I'm not sure what the story is behind the change but what has been laid out is outstanding!! The course preview video looked like a grass crit, no elevation gain, no technical challenges, few dismounts.....had me seriously worried. The layout has heaps of elevation gain and loss, lots of twists and turns and 3 dismount sections ( one which forces riders to actually run downhill into another sweeping 180 with another uphill....sick,sick people ), So all in all, very fun and super challenging.

It rained a bit last night and when I woke up there was a very heavy frost on all the cars in the hotel parking lot. So much for the course drying out, those poor Juniors this morning, it's going to slick as a smelt.

No plans today, clean the bike up a bit, head back to the airport to pick up Scott ( another Crossphile Srammie from Chicago ) perhaps go for a short spin and take a look at the course later. Forecast call for temps in the 50's and gusty winds tomorrow.
