Looks like typical spring weather for the area. I saw the NWS forecast this afternoon showing mid-50's for mid-morning and moderate winds (10-15mph). I guess the ride out will be a bit tougher than normal but we'll get some tail wind coming back. I've been watching the forecasts for the past week though and they've changed dramatically.

In my limited expereince biking that course, that area is a vortex for wind. I can leave my house in Anne Arundel COunty with alsolutely no wind, drive the 20 minutes to get there, and be struck with the wind every time. Amazing. I really feel it in the area where the woods end and the open fields begin before the first turn-about. Suprises me every time.

You really don't notice wind on the course other than the section after the roundabout and when you turn back onto Ten Oaks and Linthicum Rd.  Oh, and the part on 108 of course.

Most of it is well sheltered by trees and descending and climbing you do not notice it as much.

Ok, on the table .... I'm hoping to average 22+ even with my decreased cycling fitness .....

Well clearly you missed these other 3 posts in this thread.

I should be able to average around 22, even out of cycling shape as I am. 

Daremo - 2008-05-12 10:57 AM

on a good day I will put up bike numbers in the top 5% of the overall field (probably not this one since I've got less than 300 miles for the whole year in my legs).

Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

FYI - I rode the first few miles and ran the first 1/2 mile today. The bike starts with a small hill. The run has a decent hill right away.

Hope to see/meet many of you! I am number 1281 if anyone wants to stop by and say hi.

This is from today's Baltimore Sun:

Note // The bicycle portion of the race was shut down for about 20 minutes when an unidentified amateur male triathlete suffered multiple injuries after crashing his bike. He was transported by helicopter to Howard County General Hospital where his condition was unknown.

Good to hear about the guy who fell.  Saw the carnage while whizzing past at around 22-25 mph.  Great pictures of the race.  Never knew Macca was so small.  Also my dad was amazed how Lieto came off the bike in a full sprint and all.  GREAT RACE!
