Getting Close

I drove the entire course today. The whole course looked really good. There are a lot of long straight stretches with the only real hills stuck at the beginning and a few at the end. I did notice that there was a lot of fresh gravel on some of the roads, but I would imagine this might be packed down by race day. I put the map (via routeslip) at a link to the right. You'll notice 100.43 miles (give or take a couple) and nearly 2000ft of climbing. It should be a great day. Also, Charlie from University Cycles in Mankato has been kind enough to let us finish at his shop up by the campus, so thanks to Charlie. Also I noticed there was a Green Mill right next door so I am sure that a beer or two might be in order come finishin' time. If anybody has questions let me know chris@chrisskogen.com
