TOMORROW WE RACE.
It'll be a gun fight for sure.
A few will draw early, only to miss wildly.
A few more will shoot out the back due to simple physics.
Then the rest will draw and fire.
One will hit the mark.
It's 1/3 to 1/2 a mile to the finish, depending on where the line is... up a hill that hits 11% mid-way, then backs off to nearly flat.
Lap 3, it's probably all back together.
Lap 2, multiple breakaways will be attempted.
Lap 1, most likely feeling things out.
Neutral roll out down the hill we finish on.
For me it'll be 3 laps - 42 miles. About 2 hours.
Preceded by a solid night of sleep.
On a belly full of tacos.
