Pontiac Lake TT - Saturday

Pontiac Lake Time Trial is this Saturday, and it is the first race in our USAC race series.  The team is planning on setting up out there about 9am and we will be there until the last rhino recieves his/her medal.  Feel free to come out and race with us, or simply come out and root for your rhinos.  Weather is supposed to be better with a high of 65.  Bring some warm gear for the morning, but it should shape up to be a great day.  Hope to see you there.

The weather looks good, so we will be heading out on the 25 mile loop.  The pace will be easy, looking to average 14ish.  This is a stay together ride, however we will  be going at a pace to maintain the 14ish mph. average, we will re-group after hills.  However if you can't keep on after re-grouping you will be on your own.  Please come on out and try the ride, we do have maps at the store so no one goes MIA.  Hope to see you tonight, Anne..............
