Final Day Of Racing One Hour Away

At 7 a.m., it is still dark here at Wyandotte County Park. But in one hour, the first of six races today goes off.

The singlespeed category is first up, followed by the collegiate women at 9, the collegiate men at 10 and the Masters Men (60-64, 65-69 and 70+ divisions) at 11.

The Elite Women go off at noon, followed by the Elite Men at 1 p.m.

Temperatures will be bitterly cold, but there is no snow in the forecast. It is 14 degrees right now and, with clear skies, the temperature may drop into the single digits before it begins rising later this morning. The good news is that the wind is hardly blowing compared to yesterday's 20 mph gusts.

First word back from competitors pre-riding the course is that it is "very rideable and very fast" at this point.
