Just a few weeks away. 4 guys from my team will be there.

Cold beers afterward!

Myself + 9 guys from my team going. You buying the beers? We're a thirsty group.

BTW, I'll make sure to come introduce myself Saturday at Branchbrook... you'll be there to defend your podium(s) right?

Cat 3 green: myself and two other Threshold Cycling teammates.

Cat 4 (color?): 12 teammates.

Cat 5: 4 teammates

I'm actually really excited this year for bKill as I'm not prioritizing the race (I've peaked for it the previous 2 seasons) so I'm really gonna enjoy the experience this time a round as opposed to be super stressed about it. That said, my fitness feels just high enough that i'm not scared. Really cant wait for the weekend.

Quite a few guys from this area are headed that way with some PSIMET wheels. Keep your eyes open.

After last year, I'm not doing that one again until I find myself coming into April with some actual fitness! Have fun, everyone.

We have a hotel, but it's not very close to the race.

An email went out the other day. They were checking to see who might be interested in camping at the school.

I'll be there, with 7 teammates in Cat 3 Black. Has anyone heard anything regarding the conditions of the course? It looks like it will rain throughout the week, which will change things up - but I would be interested to hear from anyone who had pre-ridden recently...

Last I knew the dirt roads were hardpacked and not too bad. Who knows what will happen between now and then.

Saturday: A chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 53. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
maybe some sprinkles as of now, only a 30% and its stayed at that the past two days. Lets hope there is no rain/snow because the cat 5 field in particular would be a mess.

Snow showers? A very sick, twisted part of me thinks snow showers would make this race even more awesome.
