CAT 5; hopefully it'll be dry and I won't have to protect my wheel from the regular sketchyness in a cat 5 field.

Cat 4 - I think I am going to ride out there. This week is a build week and I am short on miles and not feeling another trainer workout.

Cat 5: I am planning on coming but as of right now things are kinda up in the air due to the fallowing:
- Sore throat as of late last night (Took C this morning before heading into work, hope no virus)
- Minor strained calf from gym training on Tuesday (went a little to hard). Decided no riding yesterday and will do the same today.

Will have to see how things turn out tomorrow morning. Hope things improve cause I have been looking forward to this race along with Blue Competition being one of the sponsors (kit and bike I ride).

I'll be there, 35+ and Category 3. I'd do the 123 also but am concerned about getting dizzy from going around in circles so many times.

it's not that bad, MDcatV. It's not even a circle - more like a triangle.

Pretend you're racing at Daytona.

Lap the field and you'll have to go around one less time

Congratulations on the upgrade - I guess I'll have to try and chase one of your teams around now instead

edit: and thank you for hosting the race.

I'm bringing a camera, so look pretty while getting dizzy.

I'm in for W4. I might be riding out there. Nice 25mi warmup at the crack of dawn. Better than sitting on the trainer, I guess. My legs haven't done anything since I climbed some mountains last weekend at the RTR.

I'm reg'd for Cat 4, but our move back to DC was delayed by a week thanks to me separating my shoulder in a race two weeks ago. So I'll be loading a moving truck instead...oh joy. Looks like my first race back in MABRA-land will be ToWC.
