Looking for opinions here (opinions??? on BF???).
My brother and I are making plans to attend Stage 2 of this year's TOC. I am trying to figure out what might be the most rewarding way to see my first pro stage.
We will have a car and could also bring bikes.
I had a few thoughts:
- Start - Get up to the start first thing in the morning and enjoy the spectacle. Head back home and watch the coverage on TV.
- Finish - Head to the finish first thing in the morning and try to get close to the finish.
- Start and End - Would it be possible to drive up early in the morning to watch the start then high-tail it down to Soquel to be there for the finish? Since we'd be arriving late we could park when we got close then ride into the finish area.
- KOM - Get up to Empire Grade or Bear Creek and wait for them to come by. Again, we could park close (or not) and ride to a spot with a good vantage point. We're planning to do a ride the day before and we could possibly go ride Empire Grade...which would then make watching the pros climb it even more spectacular.
Wadya think folks?
