Bad timing. The problem is that the State TT Championship is the day before in Jacksonville, which is 350 miles from Miami.
Assuming anybody has any juice left after doing a 40k Championship TT, then they have to drive 6 hours to do the Miami race.
I wouldn't expect a big turnout.

Is there a reason why that race is so expensive?
We race for the fun of it and competition, not the big bucks.
Seriously though, I've raced that Miami Lakes course before and it was like driving on the Palmetto Expressway. I'll pass.
Putting the Duh in Floriduh.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
Results are posted on usacycling.org ... I came in 9th in the 4/5 field.
I came around the last corner in 3rd, then I jumped a bit too soon and blew up before the line...
yup. fun times.
I had gone to Vista View and Miami Lakes last year...they were definitely not my thing. The circuit at the dump on Sat kicked my ass to begin with.
No, but I do remember several pileups at the crit that were caused by other than racing . Dude in a wheelchair at the start/finish taking photos that caused a huge pileup by rolling out into the course to get closer sending 2 people to the ER, spectators that kept going further and further out on the course while the officials did nothing about it, another crash caused by pushing that sent another rider out in an ambulance... all in the same race.
The circuit race at the dump/landfill was fine because it split things up nicely. I sure as hell wasn't expecting it though. lol.
