Last year I went in person, and rode about half of each stage. What a blast!

Is there ANY tv coverage this year?

Do not know about TV coverage. I usually follow it on VeloNews.

I usually attend the Brasstown Bald stage...would like to do so again, but have to check the spousal units schedule to see if that is feasible this year.

I'm actually down here at Tybee today.
We're using bird guns 'cause moving targets are too damn hard to draw a bead on with a rifle.
