Powerman Ohio Road Race

Anyone else doing it? This is going to be my last non-'cross race of 2007, so if I'm going to meet up with anyone from BF, then this is the last chance.
I'll be racing in the 4/5's, BTW since they only have four categories, and none of them are strictly junior or 4's.

As a sidenote: I hate the name of this race. "Powerman" sounds like an early 90's Saturday morning kid's show, or a crappy pop-metal band that thought they were hardcore because they had tattoos and piercings and sang about the end of the world.

I'll be there, assuming I wake up early enough. Do you know anything about the course?

I can only guess. It is in Mohican, which is a camp, and a mountain bike trail. I know that the road leading to the trailhead is smooth and has rolling hills, but I can't remember the name of the road. All of the roads I've seen out there are rolling hills and good asphalt.

I did this race last year and it is a good course (assuming the route is the same.) There are two hills back to back that are decent but not back breakers. They are hard enough, however, to make a selection. This is a course for you Bill.
