Long Beach Memorial Day Crit - anyone going?

Has anyone ridden this course before? At first I thought it was the exact course as CBR's crits in Rancho Dominguez but I think it's a little further south. Anyone on here going?

Yikes, that sucker is huge. I hope that's ok.

The course is .9 of a mile. It is pancake flat with three 90 degree turns and a sweeper. It does get windy in the afternoon which means that there is some gutter action in the later races.

LOL- nice one on the race flyer. I plan on being there, I'll probably ride 100 miles+ on Saturday, hopefully I'll be recovered.

I want to go but can not get off Monday. I am going to use the weekend for training only I think, I can not afford another 50+ dollars in gas this weekend. Plus I will be going out to the TT championships on Saturday...

My next race is the Airport crit on June 5...

Barry Wolfe crit. Where and when is that? You mean the ride from the studio?
