  1. Everyone will go out hard on the climb in the first lap. Keep a strong pace but try to resist the urge to keep up with the lead riders. Many of them will have overextended themselves on that climb and will fade away before the end of the race.

    • The burn on lap one is brutal. Before hitting the hill they stretch you out on a long fire road so your heart gets jacked and then you hit the climb. Lap 2 is better, you’re settled in and well rested from the downhill and you then just start back. Just keep turning the pedals over.

  2. At this point I hope I can make it. Fighting a BRUTAL sinus infection right now. Pumping in the fluids and keeping my fingers crossed.
