It's looking better !

The forecast is looking up. Sweet. Lorie drove the course this morning and said it is looking good. It is being swept.....in entirety !!!... this afternoon.

On a personal note, I am having complications from the road rash and concussion, and won't be too mobile tomorrow, so don't ask me to race over to your bike to help pump up a tire or something. I may spontaneously burst into tears from having to pull out of Banff, but just tell me I was probably going to suck there anyway or something :) I am excited for this event and hope we offer a quality experience. I want to see lots of extreme effort out there tomorrow !!

Here is the site plan... This is what I gave our parking marshal, Cam, M&M, and all those involved in setting things up. You can see the Country Hills Bridge on the top of the picture.

Here is the structure of the north turn around. This looks tight, but it isn't in any way. Remember we have 5 lanes !! There is tons of room, I just drew big so it was obvious. There has a problem with the east highway's paving so we are just using one.

Trev,
I don't know which forecast you're looking at, but what I've seen looks nasty still. I suppose the snow will instantly melt on the ground and we'll be OK.

I feel sorry for the really fit skinny guys - they got no body fat to keep the body temperature up. This might be a race that favors us chunkier guys. Same kind of body type that wins the "polar bear dip" year after year.

No laughing at my snow pants tomorrow!
