I see the weather reports from Emporia. Lots of river and creek and flat ground flooding. Is the race going to be real this year? You hate to burn a 28-hour round trip and most of your annual cycling budget if the race is going to end up being a muddy, boggy non-race. (Regardless of the spin, traveling to Trans Iowa had to . . . be a bummer this year.)
Any local insight? Is DK going to happen? Is it going to be a pure mud bog race?
