    Question what is the Cele course like?

    besides Cujo, what else is notable about the Cele course? Flat? Long, gradual climbs? Short steep climbs? Pot holes?

    Flat?: mostly
    Long gradual climbs: not too much
    Short steep: yes there are 2 little hills, but difficulty factor is increases because Cujo resides at little hil #1
    Pot holes? a couple, but overall the roads are in very good cond.

    Let me clarify road cond.: when its not icy the roads are in very good cond.

    I preregistered for both races when I registered last week. So since I'm paid up I'm a lot more likely to do it even if the weather is dismal. On the bright side, its only 1 1/2 hours of suffering and there's no mud involved - I can handle that.

    That's some nice looking pavement. Should grip well even when wet. Is the whole course paved like that?

    As I remember, just that stretch is recently paved. The rest is chip seal but is riddled with holes and ruts.

    I might grab a Texas toboggan sled (cardboard box) and join all the kids surfing those hills Saturday

    I think John just has a lot on his mind. Things like, “With just a little more support, I could skip Cat 4 altogether".

    Yeah, If I had guys like that pulling me, I bet I could win a 1/2/3 race! Who do I have to bribe to skip straight to a TDF team?

    I think I am developing a roadie body. All legs and a swollen head
