Greenbelt Race - 5/16/2007

CANCELLED!

But, Team BBC was represented (by me and one other team mate). There were maybe two other racers show up, but they never left their vehicles.

Dr.Pete, I tried the "hotline". It didn't save me a trip.

The "hotline" was updated at 4:50 to say the race was cancelled... Sorry about that. It was a tough call for the organizers due to the crappy timing of the storm.

On an up note, the weather cleared nicely after the thunderstorm and I went out for some 1-minute puke intervals. I set a new 1-minute power at 630W (6.92W/kg) !!! Woohoo!

I was sitting in the parking lot by 4:50pm. It was a tough call, I agree.
