I might(95% chance) be cat sitting for my sister in SF this week and thought since I would be in town from FL I might as well race!!
I am debating between doing the cat 3 or the 1-3.. Any words of wisdom?
In FL the 1-3s all race together, and 75% of the time the 4s are with us also.
Or I might do both, which sounds like a much better idea to me
I would love to have some girls to race with or just to ride with the week I am there! I will be in the city and will be alone for the week(since they are going out of town!) so would love to actually meet some of you!!
A lot of 3s I know race both races - one for the win and one for the training. The 1,2,3 race will likely be very fast, as a few of the big names will show. The only hard part is that the 3s race is usually before the 1,2,3 race, so you will be tired.
It is a fun course, and there are usually quite a few spectators. There is one small uphill section that lasts about a block and climbs about 50 feet. It feels like nothing the first 5-6 times and then really starts to hurt. The good news is that after that turn, there is a long downhill where you can re-position.
I will not be racing, but perhaps will spectate (Labor day weekend plans still in the air). You will definitely have fun if you decide to try the race!
Oh, and the primes in this race are fantastic - lots of $100 bills and messenger bags and bike frames and stuff.
I really want to go... but not sure. There is a lot to choose from that weekend and Clovis is a lot closer for me ;p Its a maybe on my schedule. If there are a lot of Bella's doing the 1,2,3 race who want to play with me then I can be convinced to go
