    Well, jeez. What are you expecting? To hold 20k TT pace for 4 hours? 76% for over 4 hours is a hard ride!

    How long? I just looked at my hardest road race last season, 3.5 hours at 85%. If you're riding for a couple of hours or so, you wouldn't expect to see an IF much higher than that.

    The only races Sunday are the P/1 and the odd-numbered masters fields. So assuming you will be between 40 and 44, you could do cat 2 or 40+ on Saturday and then 35+ on Sunday. All of those fields...

    Thumbs down. In the software world there is the expression "implementation is everything." The tendency toward coveting an idea is a step down the path to considering an idea to be property. But...

    550 racers signed up, 2 hours after pre-reg opened (and 5 months before the race)... which is a lot, but less than previous years for sure.

    [edit] 750 now, and a couple of fields are full.
