It was an awesome race at the time. I remember going through tunnels at horshoe curve, climbing ridiculously steep climbs, heading up to blue knob, etc. They even closed down the one lane of I-99 to run the Time Trial. It was fun. Who did you purchase the bike? The name that comes to mind is Brooke Blackwelder. Team Bodywise...Cannondale based team. I can't remember her husband's name. She was a classy pro! really good PR person too.
