the racelink shows 21 of us BTers doing the 5430 Long (welllll, now 22) - I know a few BTers racing are also doing IMAZ in Nov
Its a pretty fast course - the wildcards being how quickly it warms up and when the winds pick up. Last year the winds were mild for the morning and a light cloud cover kept the sun from heating the course up - both men and women pro's broke the bike course records
Welcome to CO - try to get up here sometime this summer to ride the course
I'm in also for the race. The bike course is great, but it can be really hot during the run. The run course is totally exposed with almost zero shade. They typically pass out ice and sponges though. It's a well run race!
