Course is pretty much half-downhill, half-uphill. Not steep, mind you, but still, that 2% for 1/4-mile is killer when you do it 20 times at 25mph!!

(Of course, I'm too heavy to be much of a climber. I only lasted about 4-5 laps last year. But then, it was the Regional Championships.)

Skipping it this year, I'm busy that day.

I did the race last year in the 4's but I was sick and didn't enjoy myself. From what I remember there were a couple of sections of bad pavement between turn 1 and 2 that caused some havoc in a few races.

Yikes. That sucks! that course claimed its share of vicitms today, I guess. Several crashes in the 4's, too. I almost ate a no parking sign and a chain link fence(in that order) when I was forced to hop the curb and surf the sidewalk for a bit after some dude bobbled and pushed me wide.

Crashed on the second to last corner in second wheel, broke a wrist and bruised my quad and hip bone pretty bad. No SLR for me. I'm hoping I can ride state championship next week.
