'It's Just Insane Out There'

The chatter in the crowd Friday morning is about the snow, according to one of the race announcers, John Lefler, Jr.

"It's all about if, and when, and how much snow we are going to get," Lefler said. "Depending on how much snow we get, it could really help things. Right now, it's just insane out there."

Lefler said snow will change the complexion of the course dramatically.

"I think what you'll find is that a lot of riders who came to this race with great form are going to feel mentally zapped," he said. "It's like you have a Porsche, but you're driving it in two feet of snow.

"It's going to be who can handle their bike the best. It won't be about power."
