    Just got back from pre-riding the Reston course. I would summarize it as:
    - Not very hilly
    - No mud
    - No runups
    - Lots of tight corners
    - Lots of soft (somewhat water-logged) grass
    - Paved (but narrow) straightaway over the dam
    - One tricky off-camber downhill (expect some crashes here!)
    - One patch of deep gravel (which you can avoid if you stay to the far right, near the tape)
    - Different course from last year due to boat dock construction work near the concession area

    I would rate the course a bit on the slow side due to all the soft grass and tight turns.

    Conditions should be good tommorrow - mostly sunny, low to mid 50's.

    Good luck!
