I'm in, cat 4.

I've seen the course map, but can anyone tell me how long it is from the final turn to the finish? (not the bend, but the actual turn)

word. thanks.

I think it is 400 - 500 meters. I've riden this twice and it seems the finish is always further away than you think.

I'm probably gonna be there for the 3's. I said I was gonna be done after superweek, but I'm a sucker for fun looking races with tons of prize money.

The sprint is closer to 700m from the final turn. It's basically 3 sprints in one. When I won a $100 prime there last year, it was almost 1min of huge power. We were doing probably 36-37mph for 45sec. BLEW me up for the finish.

This is actually the 500th time I hosted a womens team. They come down for superweek, elk grove, downers grove every year.

We skip the whole requesting a team business and just have their phone #'s, and vice versa.

DOH! For some reason, I thought this was at the end of August - not the beginning. No wonder I saw those teams riding around this AM. I'll show up in the AM to take pics!

Hey Psimet - If and when I finalize my order with you, maybe we can close the TX near where you work? I live in Addison - two towns south.

Crazy race. RPE was way higher than Chicago Crit; but the actual race was 35w lower (ave). Those damn sprints out of every turn hurt. Rain began after the start, made it a but more nuts. really nice event, I'm glad I made it.

finished 4th--2nd in the field sprint. missed the podium by 1/2 a wheel. beat 5th by 1/2 wheel. tight finish.

All jadedness aside...i was pretty lucky. My chin was literally the first thing to hit. It happened right in front of the EMT's and they were pretty worried initially because of how quickly my head snapped back up.

That xXx guy in the three's got it much worse...he was in the room next to me.

It was an ugly day out there, i was the first in the ER, but by the time i left there were 4 there and another on the way.

I'm confident i would have been on the podium. My breathing was calm, my legs were strong, my position was perfect...except for the part where i was next to a guy who went down.
