Me. 35+ or 3's, haven't decided. If I do 35+ I'll be the guy attacking. If 3's I'll just be covering the 1/2 guys who are attacking.

This will be my first combined race (4/5)...do they let them go all at once or is there a gap?

^It's a combined field, all at once. Sometimes they'll score them seperately, but it doesn't look like that here.

Should probably be there racing in the 4's, or 4/5 field apparently.

Yeah, Sunday is too "rolling" for that. Does that make it worse?

No complaints from me. I like the area; the state RR course is one of my favorites. I would prefer not to do it at crit speeds however.

That space coast RR back a couple of weeks ago was bad enough and the only rolling parts were two overpasses.

Dude, I'm worried about Justin. He's hit a growth spurt recently and we can not drop him no matter how hard we try, and he's outclimbing just about everyone on one of our local 90 second "power climbs". He even tried to come around me in the final sprint on a group ride about a month ago.

In another year or two, we're going to be begging for mercy when he's on the rides...

I thought he did come around you in that sprint

I signed up. I decided to go "geezer" instead of "cat. The early start times (except for the TT) looked appealing.

Yup.

I was definitely looking forward to riding shotgun for my bald-headed teammate this weekend though.
