man i wasnt planning on doing this race...just got back from my employers Sales Conference (aka booze fest) and missed the last 1.5 weeks of training, combined with all you can eat and drink Oh dear...i ended up caving to some peer pressure (they lured me in with the promised of post race beers) from my team mates so IM heading out tomorrow to give this crit a go.
23% grade OH MY @#$#@
anyone else?? any pre-race advice other then shoot myself now to end the suffering??
