Pre-race Check In at Joe Black’s on Fri, Feb 18

The details on the Instagram post basically say it all. You get a free non-alcoholic drink of your choice, a commemorative toque, your mandatory course cue sheets and bib #, and we get your waiver signature and proof of vaccination. Seems like a reasonable trade to us!

We’ll be there from 3pm to 6pm but come early so that while it’s still daylight you can walk across the park footbridge to the Duck Pond Shelter race start venue and check out where the racing begins the next day.

Great ride on part of the course today!

We rode the western loop of the course today and everything looked good (after a few small changes)! We’ve decided we will remove a portion of the Yellow Ribbon Greenway near the airport property that is really blown in, and we’re cutting the northern most section of the Sturgeon Creek path a bit shorter. Additionally on the eastern loop we’re eliminated the Sage Creek area which is mostly impassible due to heavy snow. Total course distance will be a bit shorter as a result, but not by much, and most of the existing course remains intact. All of those details will be updated to our GPS, cue sheets, and Course Description soon.
