Good news from Polson -
It rained up here yesterday, but my brief scouting last night showed that the roads were holding up fairly well. I woke up this morning to dry, calm skies with high clouds that seem to be breaking up. We might even get some sunshine by race start and temps are predicted up to 60.
We will know more details about the road conditions when we flag the course this morning, but riders should prepare for a mix of muddy patches and puddles on mostly firm roads. At this point, we are definitely planning to use the original course and road bikes should be fine.
Check-in starts at 10:30 and we depart at high noon. I am expecting the largest field ever to help create some great new stories of suffering and glory as we reunite at the top of the infamous REO.
