A quick course review: Start on grass with a lot of U turns, the typical double barrier, a little speed sections before it went down to the beach. This was any where near ride-able -- about one bike length and all momentum was killed to zero speed and running was on the list, just followed up by a stair case to get up and off the beach again. Did Py old you, he hates sand.... and in particular in his shoes. Well no time to even think about hating it while racing. So far so good. Then a fast grassy/dirt section before hitting a rooty trail section along side a beautiful water view ending in a steep unrideable short down to the water U-turn and run it up again followed by a slight up hill trail part into the woods. Exiting the woods with an fast right turn onto grass again and repeat. In pictures this looks like:
But also Py took some pictures for all you cycling fans!
