    Chantilly, VA: Cold Toes Saturday

    I'm in the DC area for a bit, and am thinking of doing the Cold Toes "B" race down in Chantilly, VA.

    All I can a gather from the website is that it looks like a training crit, though I can't quite tell what the course actually is from the aerial map.

    Can one you MD/VA/DC folks tell me what you think about this race and course? Is it pretty fast or is it pretty easy to sit in? Smooth field or pretty sketchy? Does it fill up pretty early?

    Many thanks!

    It's fast, but easy to sit in. There have been a couple crashes but not in the B race. It doesn't fill up early, but get there at least 45 minutes ahead of time. The roads are pristine. The course, while not the most technical, is still fun.
