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.

Here is my best effort at an optimistically honest conditions report for tomorrow's Speedwagon Classic:
Also, the post ride feast and celebration should be better than ever with great food, spirits, and even live music this year.
Hope to see many of you tomorrow morning. Check-in starts at 10:30 (info flier attached).
Feel free to reply with questions.

|Used this tire in all Spring Classics last year|
|This is the Pave from Vittoria. Lots of history, used by most big name Pros at Roubaix, Flanders, ect. Flathead Russ used these last year in the classics. I'm using a cheaper version of this tire for 2012.|
|Affordable, durable, and versatile, the Easton SLX70.|
|Busted these wheels during the Spring Classics last year.|
