I see the course is up Baldy, GRR to eastfork, down 39, back up GMR/GRR then Baldy to the lifts.
Never been one for crowds so I'm thinking 5 miles up GMR to see the riders go by. I'm thinking the east fork 39 descent will give the riders a chance to regroup. Rats! I'd rather watch them climb in small groups while riders struggle to stay on. But no way am I willing to drive or even ride up with the crowds that will be on Baldy. Just not one for crowds.
I figure GRR isn't very steep so that section will also allow for a regroup.
So let's say Gina and I ride up GMR 5 miles and have a picnic to watch them go by. What are the chances that the field will be split at that point?
I know, Baldy will be the best section but really, I don't care enough to fight the crowds, car or bike. I really don't even know who's racing. Just wanting to sneak a peek at some struggling riders.
That's figuring we're allowed to ride up GMR well before the race arrives, I have no idea, anybody?
