They have done it again... laid pea gravel just weeks before the IMWI race, but this time in a VERY DANGEROUS location.
There is pea gravel at the bottom of the fastest hill on the course!
At the very bottom of the hill on Timber Lane before the 90 degree left hand turn. It was dodgy before... it is now mindbogglingly dangerous! (Is that a word?!)
Take this corner VERY slowly!

I've ridden that course for years and it just seems to get worse and worse. They need to look at changing things up. You shouldn't have to break because of road conditions.

I am in the market for a new road bike, at several local bike stores I will test ride several bikes. Other than basic fit and components, how should I compare them while doing a test ride?

I struggled on the bike while climbing the hill portions of the course. I do fine on long straight rides but really have a tough time while hill climbing. Any advice or training tips?

If you would have told me that I would want to train over ten hours a week for a race that can last up to 17 hours, I would have laughed. But somehow, my ACL injury has refocused my outlook on life.
