yeah! turn four was too much of a mess. with the cones on the outside and the bumps/water on the inside i'm suprised there weren't more crashes there. last year rashaan won the 1/2 race coming through that corner way over 30 mph where we went throught the cones right up to the curb on the opposite side. i wasw really suprised that everyone made it through. i hate sprinting near the cones, i'm worried about the riders i'm trying to pass moving towards me or others and pushing them into the cones in the sprint.

Good choice!

Corner 4 is a nightmare! - How about they have it on the back stretch on the downhill!

yeah, IMO, the new start finsih is a lot safer then the old one, but the new run up to the line seems to slow the bunch a bit more then before. I ran into cleave before the start of the 40+ race, so it was good to see BF folks out there turning the pedals. It was fun, but I mainly used that race for training miles. For me, the 50+ was a harder race, since I did a bit more work then in the 40+ race

Hi,

Yep, got to meet bigdraft. Good name for him. Of course some might call me little draft.

I'll post my race my report in the other thread and how I got yelled at and "lectured" after the race.
