we have a crit that has similar climb, it's a bloodbath everyman for himself type of race after a couple few times up it, but it also has some technical turns into alleys and from wide->narrow roadways so that adds to the every man for himself aspect of it.
hey, I want to sign up for this, but the 4/5 is filled up. What's the 3/4/5 group going to be like compared to the 4/5?

I would think that the 3's in a 3/4/5 race would drive the pace hard early to try and shell as many 5's as possible.
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.
well, the 3/4/5 race only opened up because the 4/5 race was filled up. The 3/4 and 2/3 races are still open. I was curious if this happened every year, and if so, how big was the 3/4/5 race? Did any 3's actually sign up for the 3/4/5 instead of the 3/4 or 2/3? I just want to get an idea of how big the field is going to be. I guess I should probably call them to find out.
yup, I got that email too. 100 people in a 4/5 race. let's all pray very hard we don't crash.
I got it a few weeks ago before the 4/5 filled up. Very excited about CotA and that place has some other really cool events coming up like Dave Chapel (bet we'll have Sam Jackson beer) and Iron Maiden w/ Megadeath! Have not seen them since high school and my wife wants to go, super cool!
Back to OP yea that hill is gona hurt and I have been doing lots of 30s power work and riding over the top of those efforts. The driveway has been great this month and I have been very aggressive and doing lots of work at the front and attacking. Not racing smart but hard. See you out at CotA!
